  5. In the bowl of a stand mixer beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, a few minutes.
  6. Beat the eggs in one at a time, scrape down the sides of bowl as needed.
  7. Beat in the yogurt, followed by the cooled white chocolate, orange zest and juice and vanilla.
  8. Turn the mixer to low speed and add the flour mixture.
  9. Stir in the whole cranberries, pecans and white chocolate chips.
  10. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  11. Bake until skewer inserted in bread comes out clean, about 70-75 minutes.
