  1. In a small saucepan combine cherries and wine. Bring just to boiling; remove from heat. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over the edges of the pan. Grease and flour foil; set pan aside.

  2. In a medium saucepan heat and stir butter and unsweetened chocolate over low heat until melted and smooth. Whisk in sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, whisking well after each addition. Stir in vanilla. In a small bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir into chocolate mixture until combined. Stir in undrained cherries.

  3. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Bake about 30 minutes or until sides begin to pull away from pan. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
