Processing Steps

  1. Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a bundt pan.
  2. Step 2: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Step 3: In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Step 4: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk. Mix until just combined.
  5. Step 5: Fold in the cherries and dark chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan.
