Black Forest Bundt Cake

Black Forest Bundt Cake

If you are a fan of chocolate-covered cherries, you’ll love this cake. It’s perfectly moist and divinely complex. You’ll experience the mellow tones of chocolate, the explosion of sweet cherries, and a trailing hint of almond.

Is it possible to use non-fat greek yogurt instead of sour cream? Or will that ruin the texture and flavor of the cake?

Made this Black Forest Bundt Cake for Valentine's Day as a treat for my husband.
Made exactly as recipe stated, no modifications or changes. Looked perfect when it came out of oven & I inverted onto cake plate. The cake was moist, but was disapointed as the flavor was flat...didn't taste like a dense moist chocolate cake should. I will not make it again.

I thought the flavor of this cake was good, but I feel like the almond was a little strong. I wonder what it would be like with hazelnut instead. I enjoyed it, but I think I'll play with the recipe a bit.
