Cherry Buckle

So my sister and I have been watching Food network of late. My favorite show thus far is Semi-Homemade with Sandra lee. The other day we watched an easy to make recipe for something called a Cherry Buckle... something I've never heard of. It was so easy to make and WONDERFUL to eat.
Pear and Cherry Buckle

1 (26-ounce) can cherry pie filling
2 (15-ounce) cans diced pears in syrup
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 (18.25-ounce) box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter, cut into small pieces
1 (1.19-ounce) packet maple and brown sugar instant oatmeal
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Whipped topping, for serving

Spray a 5-quart slow cooker(Mmm... crock pot meals) with butter-flavored cooking spray (we used regular Pam) and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine pie filling, pears, and almond extract. Pour into prepared slow cooker. Sprinkle cake mix over fruit mixture. Dot with butter. In a small bowl, combine oatmeal packet and almonds. Sprinkle over cake mixture. (For this part we just poured Cherry filling, pears, cake mix, and oatmeal in the crock pot. Less Cleaning. We didn't use almond extract or almonds at all)

Place 8 paper towels over slow cooker bowl and secure with lid. (This helps to trap steam.) Cook on LOW setting for 4 to 6 hours. Do not lift lid to check cake for the first 3 hours. (It's SO tempting)

Serve warm with whipped topping.

I'm learning on the photos. I didn't get a good shot of the dessert on plates because it was gone WAY to quickly.
