1 cup real melted butter
2 cups milk
6 eggs beaten eggs

1/2 tsp. almond extract(not almond flavoring)
In a seperate bowl mix:
6 cups oatmeal

1 Tblsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Pour into liquid mixture. Mix well.
2 cups fresh or canned tart cherries with juice. 1/8 or so cup of juice that comes with the cherries. Depending how much juice–just toss in a little bit more oatmeal.
Pour into greased 9×13 pan. Bake at 350* for 30+ minutes, center will be a bit gooey yet. Will set up as it cools.
Serve warm in a bowl with milk (if desired), but tastes great cold too!
