Really good. This is a great, creamy recipe that comes out of the oven with just the perfect texture. We tried it first the way it is, but the cinnamon was a little overpowering for the kids. The next time we made it, we used 4 T of brown sugar, and then one more tsp. after cooking, and it was perfect. A yummy, warm treat for breakfast before sending the kids off to school.
Great oatmeal! Not the usual texture of a baked oatmeal (creamier) but nice just the same. I loved the apples and raisins in this. I forgot to add the cinnamon before baking so just sprinkled some on top when I served it. Yummy breakfast - thanks for sharing the recipe!
This was quite different from what I expected but delicious nonetheless. Often baked oatmeal is quite firm, enough so that you can slice it and make wedges portable morning meals. This oatmeal is rich like a custard and filled with bites of fruit, bowl and spoon required. I made mine using rhubarb rather than apples, proving that this is quite versatile. Thanks LA. Made for Zaar Stars.
