Topping
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned or quick cooking oats, uncooked
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Cake
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 twenty-one ounce can cherry pie filling




Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For the topping, combine sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium mixing bowl; mix well. Cut in butter to make a crumbly mixture. Set aside.

For the cake batter, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add eggs and milk; mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Do not overmix; batter will be lumpy. Spread half the batter into a lightly greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Spoon cherry filling evenly over batter. Top with remaining batter. Sprinkle reserved topping over batter.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.
