  2. For oatmeal layer: In mixing bowl stir flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Stir in melted butter. Pat slightly more than half into bottom of an ungreased 13x9 pan. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Carefully drop fruit filling by spoonfuls onto bottom layer, spreading carefully to cover. Sprinkle remaining oat mixture on top, patting gently. Bake 20-22 minutes more until it just begins to brown. Cool partially on wire rack.
