  Corn meal 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Baking powder 1 Tablespoon
  Ground cinnamon 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Grated nutmeg 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cranberries 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs), finely chopped
  Anise seeds 1 Teaspoon
  Yogurt 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs) (Preferably Nonfat)
  Buttermilk 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Egg substitute 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Honey 1 Tablespoon
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.

MAKING
2. In a bowl, combine the yogurt, buttermilk, egg substitute, and honey.
3. In a large bowl, sift the unbleached flour, whole-wheat flour, cornmeal, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
4. Add the cranberries and anise seeds.
5. Pour the liquid ingredients into the flour bowl.
6. Mix well, using a large rubber spatula.
7. On a floured board, knead the dough to form mound shape of 7-inch thickness.
8. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick spray and place the dough on the sheet.
9. Use a sharp knife to slash an "X" in the top, about 1/2 inch deep (to help keep the loaf from splitting raggedly as it rises).
10. Sprinkle the top with a bit of unbleached flour.
11. Bake at 450°F for about 30 minutes, or until the bottom of the bread sounds hollow when tapped.
12. Remove from the oven and let stand about 20 minutes before slicing.

SERVING
13. Cranberry bread should be served warm to get the best taste.
14. Arrange the bread on a serving platter with a couple of cranberry pieces on the side.
