quick cooking oats
This was really yummy, and has already been requested twice! However, I modified the recipe to my family's tastes. As suggested by previous reviewers, I used homemade applesauce in place of the oil called for. Also added molasses, and used between 4-8 Tbs. water instead of eggs.(Didn't measure the amount of liquid. Just eyeballed it. I needed the extra liquid b/c I also added one large chopped apple, and 1/2 c chopped almonds.) Substituted almond milk for the milk, and used Rumford's non-aluminum baking powder. I omitted the raisins and used a handful of dry cranberries instead. Omitted the brown sugar topping, and added more cinnamon, as well.
I thought this was good, but only after I added melted butter and milk to moisten each serving.
If you think you don't like oatmeal unless it's baked, try making oatmeal in the microwave with milk (whole - or add some cream to your skim) instead of water, and then stir in a dash of salt and some brown sugar. Top with fresh berries (whatever you have on hand), cinnamon, and a little cardamom. This is much healthier, much faster, and in my opinion tastier. I would still do the baked version for a crowd, because you can make many servings in one pan, but for every day try it in the microwave as described - healthier and better.
I love this recipe. I need to eat more oatmeal and this recipe makes it so yummy! I change it slightly, using applesauce instead of oil and I use 1/4 cup of white sugar, then 1/2 of brown. And I add a can of fruit (peaches are great!) and some chopped walnuts. It fills me up for hours! Great with just the spray butter or if you want to pour milk on it, why not?
This recipe is a definite winner - our whole family loves it! It's a great breakfast dish to make when you have overnight guests. I often double the recipe and bake it in an 11x14 glass baking dish (using 1 c white and 1 c brown sugar). You can easily mix this up the night before, cover with plastic, stick it in the fridge, and simply bake it in the morning whenever you wake up. NOTE: To avoid breaking my cold glass baking dish by placing it in a hot oven, I put the cold dish into the oven BEFORE I turn the oven on (that way the dish and the oven slowly heat at the same time). If I'm baking this oatmeal staight from the fridge, I'll increase the baking time a bit (about 45-50 minutes for a single recipe or 60-75 minutes for the 11x14 size double recipe), otherwise I use the time given in the recipe. Mmm-Mmm!, great on a chilly morning!
This was nice and cakey and had a great flavor. I did sub applesauce for the oil. Next time I will try pumpkin puree and add some spices. I hate regular oatmeal and love eating this so it gets 5 stars from me.
I did not like oatmeal for breakfast - until now. It's got the texture of rice but tastes more like dessert. I reduced the amount of sugar to half a cup and it is still plenty. I also make & bake it in the morning (haven't left it overnight in refrigerator) and it is still great. My 3 year old will eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! I will make it at least once a week from now on. If you're not a oatmeal eater - try this!
I ordered baked oatmeal for the first time this morning at a restaurant. It was so good that I immediately looked in All Recipes for a similar dish when I got home. This one looks close except the restaurant put blueberries and diced peaches in with the oatmeal. They served it with cream and brown sugar on the side. It was wonderful. I will try making this recipe and add the fruit.
I made this for breakfast this morning and it was great. As a topping/side dish, I made Jenny's Sauteed Apples (type "Sauteed Apples" in the search), and it was perfect. My mom wants me to make it again next week.
