Ingredients

2 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/4 c
cocoa, unsweetened
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 c
greek yogurt
1 tsp
balsamic vinegar

1/2 c

2 large

2 c

1 c

1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and baking powder in a bowl.
2
Mix the yogurt and vinegar in a large bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes to sour the yogurt. Beat in the butter, sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract.
3
Stir the liquid ingredients into the flour mixture until just combined. Fold in the zucchini and dry cherries.
4
Pour batter into the prepared pan, and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
5
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
We leave in the pans and eat with out frosting but a cream cheese frosting or whip cream would be good toppings... This cake reheats well..
