DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F Grease a 5-by-9-inch loaf pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine the whole cherries and the sugar. Using a potato masher, crush the cherries. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool. Whisk in the sour cream and eggs. Stir in the flour mixture.
  • Fold the chopped cherries into the batter. Gradually stir in the butter. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, then bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.
