Chocolate Cherry Pound Cake

[Photograph: Carrie Vasios]

This super chocolatey poundcake has a cocoa base mixed with chocolate chips and diced fresh cherries.

Note: This is an adaptation of a recipe that my grandmother made, and she used shortening. If you really can't get yourself to use it, you'll lose a little tenderness but you can substitute 1/2 cup of butter instead.
