Back in June, I shared this recipe for Cherry Chocolate Chunk Muffins and mentioned I had two more fresh cherry recipes to share this summer.

Given how much traffic it’s already generated, I’m thrilled to see you guys also love the chocolate and cherry combination (it’s one of my favorites, too) — because here’s another!

This time, we’re going back to my trust favorite baked dessert: the bundt cake! I love bundt cakes because somehow they’re both really easy and a little fancy.

Why bake a sheet cake when you can make a bundt cake in a pretty mold? And then decorate it with some chocolate fudge frosting and fresh cherries. Why, indeed?

A quick Google search shows that most chocolate cherry cakes are made with chocolate cake mix and a jar of cherry pie filling.

I’m sure these are delicious (because how can you go wrong with chocolate cake and cherry pie filling?) but today, we’re going homemade with our chocolate cherry bundt cake.
