This recipe came from an old Amish cookbook of mine. It tastes like an oatmeal cookie. It stores well in the refrigerator and can be reheated in the microwave and served with milk. This has to sit overnight, so plan accordingly. It is well worth the wait, however!
- 1⁄3 cup butter
- 2 large eggs
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg or 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 3 cups oatmeal (regular or quick)
- Melt butter.
- Grease 1 1/2 quart baking dish and drop in eggs and beat well.
- Add brown sugar, baking powder, vanilla, nutmeg or cinnamon, and salt. Mix well, no lumps.
- Whisk in butter and both measures of milk, then add oats.
- Stir well, and refrigerate overnight.
- Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 35-45 min, or until set in the middle.
- Serve hot with warm milk poured over.
This is delicious! I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup (dark brown) and cut the butter to 1/4 cup, and it's wonderful. I used cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and threw in raisins and walnuts. I also used almond milk instead of regular milk, and didn't refrigerate before baking. I'll be making this again to keep in the fridge for a quick, nutritious breakfast.
I have made this several times and it is absolutely wonderful! It's good hot or cold and has replaced 'breakfast' bars as my on the run food choice. I use applesauce instead of butter and have reduced the brown sugar to a quarter cup. Don't let the overnight prep turn you away - I've made this right before baking and it was great!
I have been looking at this recipe for proabably as many years as I gave it stars and finally broke down and tried it. I can't believe it sat that long in my folder I absolutely love it and it has ruined other ways of making oatmeal for me. I love the texture like eating a warm cookie or soft granola. Once you try it it's hard to go back.
