Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Coat a 2 litre baking dish with cooking spray, or lightly grease with oil or butter. Melt chocolate chips in a measuring jug in the microwave, stirring every 20 seconds until smooth. Let stand for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Rub in butter until the mixture is a uniform crumbly texture. Beat the egg into the melted chocolate chips, then stir the milk in. Pour the chocolate mixture into the dry ingredients, and stir until well blended.
Pour the cherry fruit filling in an even layer in the bottom of the prepared dish. Drop spoonfuls of the topping over the cherries in a random pattern.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until top is not doughy when lifted. Serve warm.
