  1. Position a rack in center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread the frozen cherries in an ungreased 9×9-inch baking dish, deep pie pan, or similar-sized dish. Toss the cherries with the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Make the crumb mix: blend the egg and sugar, add the flour and baking powder. Mix well, and crumble on top of the cherries.
  4. Melt the stick of butter and pour on top.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the crumble is dry and browned and the cherries are bubbling.
  6. Cool for at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.
