The Ultimate Green & Black's Brownies

It may have been the years spent working at Green & Blacks that made me really appreciate the brownie. There is something about the all-American delight that people can't turn down, something about the fudgey, chocolatey, dense gooey goodness that makes us forget the calorie content and take 'just a little one'. 
These have been baked for a stag do (yes, I am a good wife!). There is eleven of them you see, that are heading west surfing for the weekend and I can't think of anything nicer to eat when you arrive home, showered and warm. I hope those boys appreciate them! 

300 g unsalted butter
300 g dark chocolate (minimum 70%, broken into pieces)
5 large eggs
400 g granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
200g plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
1. Grease a roasting or baking tray. In a bowl (placed on top of a pot of boiling water) melt the butter and chocolate together until thick and creamy
Meanwhile beat together sugar, eggs and vanilla extract until thick and creamy. The mixture should easily coat the back of a spoon.
2. Once the butter-chocolate mixture has melted, remove from stove and beat into the egg mixture Sift the flour and salt together, and add to the wet ingredients. Mix until mixture is well combined.
3. If using, drain morello cherries and fold into the brownie mixture.
4.Pour mixture into the tray and bake for 20 – 30 minutes at 180C. Once finished baking, allow to cool and cut into pieces.
