I love baking bundt cakes.  They just make me smile inside and out.  The multiple designed pans available, the unique flavor combinations you can create, and the beauty of a well drizzled glaze all come together in perfect harmony of happiness.

When I heard this month’s theme for #BundtAMonth was cherries, I had to think of a new idea for my cake.  I opened the fridge and there was my inspiration…black cherry greek yogurt, and was resulted was an amazing
White Chocolate Black Cherry Yogurt Bundt Cake.

When I think of dried cherries, I usually picture my favorite salad or trail mix with nuts and white chocolate chips. I decided to follow this mental image, and complement the black cherry yogurt by adding white chocolate chips and dried cherries.

If you aren’t already aware, adding greek yogurt into a cake recipe produces a wonderfully moist cake. Plus the moisture helped plump up the dried cherries in the baking process. Each bite of cake is filled with the sweet melted white chocolate chips with a burst of tangy sweetness from the dried cherries. This cake was definitely a winner in my book for being filled with flavor.

I’m glad I decided to try something new for this month’s theme. I already thought my bundts were all starting to look the same, and now with this flavor combination, I definitely made something completely different, right down to the pink Wilton vanilla melts and glittery white sanding sugar.

Because a glittery cake with a little more white chocolate drizzled on top would be completely awful…said NO ONE EVER!

Now head on over to check out the rest of the #BundtAMonth crew’s yumtastic offerings. You won’t be disappointed.
