Well, although used all the ingredients you listed, I did change several of them, increasing them, actually! I used a full cup of dried cranberries, half a cup of pecans & a very generous teaspoon of the orange zest!, & we loved it all! A wonderful flavor combo for oatmeal! Thanks for this great keeper!

I really love oatmeal and think this turned out quite tasty. I'm only giving it 3 stars because I had to make some changes after trying the Banana Bread version of this recipe and finding it just too dry. After looking up another Baked Oatmeal recipe that I really like, I made the following changes: 1 cup quick oats, 3/4 cup milk (made from powdered milk since I was out of fresh) and baking time reduced to 35 minutes for a large dish. I also subbed walnuts for pecans and left out the optional ingredients. The shorter cooking time made a big difference. It wasn't mushy (due to reduced liquid) but wasn't dry either. I love having the nuts included in the oatmeal and will throw them in whenever I make baked oatmeal in the future.

Delicious!! Loved the brown sugar with the cranberries. I didn't have any orange zest so I just added 1/4 tsp of orange juice and that gave it just a hint of orange flavor - perfect. As with your other 2 baked oatmeals I've tried, I halved the recipe and cooked it in 2 ramekins - ate one warm the day I made it, ate the other cold the next day. Wonderful both ways - thanks for sharing your recipe!

Delicious. I made half of it and got 2 ramekins. I used orange zest and didn't measure. It was probably more than asked. I loved it that way. We loved it. Thanks Swissms :) Made for PRMR tag game

I never ate oatmeal for the same reason, until last year when I discovered that baked oatmeals didn't have to be mushy. We enjoyed this recipe so much we made it two days in a row! The first day in four 6oz ramekins & the second day in an 8x8 baking dish. I left out the optional orange zest, as my cranberries were orange flavored & it's quite a powerful orange flavor so I didn't think we'd need any extra. Other than that, made as directed. I loved the creme brulee topping & even my picky toddler at this "all gone!" The amounts are perfect as written, giving each ingredient a chance to stand out. Thanks for sharing your creation, swissms!
