Who Died? Cherry Bars

Posting this in response to a request. I have had this recipe for years and it is a favorite. The title comes from the fact that someone always makes these for funeral lunches. Here in the Midwest it's a tradition to take food to the family's home when someone passes away and also to the church for the funeral lunch.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt and add to egg mixture. Spread batter on a greased and floured 11x17 pan, saving about 1 cup batter to spread on top.
