Recipe by Everything Sweet
This is a wonderful dish, especially if you have a houseful of guests over for the holidays. Is great warm or cold and you can add which ever fruit or nuts you prefer. This is from Penzey's spices. This recipe is great! Even people who don't really like oatmeal love this one!

Excellent! I loved baked oatmeal & this recipe was just perfect. I changed it slightly by cutting it down to feed 3 of us in 6oz ramekins. For the dried fruit I used dried cherries so I complemented that with almond extract instead of the vanilla. I also used pecans instead of walnuts, due to DD's allergies. This baked up in 3 ramekins for 40 minutes to a perfectly moist, yet not soupy consistency, although the batter looks like it will be when first mixed. We didn't top it with anything. It was perfect on it's own! Thanks for sharing, Everything Sweet! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2009 Pick A Chef.
