  • 1 cup margarine
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Mix together the margarine and sugar, I use mixer.  Add eggs and beat well.  The add flour, salt and baking powder.  Save one cup of mixture for topping.  Spread cherry pie mix over bottom of pan; dot the extra cup of batter over the top of cherries.  Use a fork to spread.  Bake in 300 degree oven for 40 minutes.  Can frost, drizzle lightly over the top when cool.
