Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
  • Prepare fresh cherries (except for garnish) and place in a medium-size bowl. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan.
  • Add cocoa powder, water, and salt to the saucepan.
  • Whisk to combine, bring to a low simmer, and remove from the heat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, and baking soda.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla extract, and Greek yogurt. Set aside.
  • Add the heated cocoa mixture to the flour mixture and stir well to combine.
  • Stir the egg and Greek yogurt into the cake batter and stir until fully incorporated.
  • Add the chocolate chips to the bowl with the cherries and toss with 2 tablespoons of flour (this prevents the cherries from sinking to the bottom of the pan while baking).
  • Gently fold the cherries and chocolate chips into the cake batter and pour the batter evenly into a bundt pan that has been sprayed liberally with baking spray.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Cool the cake on a wire rack for 30 minutes.
  • Turn the cake out onto a serving platter and continue cooling.
  • When the cake is completely cool, dust liberally with confectioners sugar, and garnish with fresh cherries if desired.

Notes

Wrap loosely and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Best served at room temperature. Remove the cake from the refrigerator one hour before serving.
To freeze, wrap well and freeze for up to 2 months. Add confectioners sugar dusting before serving.
