I love baked oatmeal and this one's a winner! The pumpkin flavor shines here; I was afraid it wouldn't be sweet enough but it was just right. I halved the recipe and did add the optional pecans and enjoyed every bite - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Top Favorites of 2009 event

This is very good! I used the steel cut oats too, and I added a little fresh nutmeg. I did not have any cranberries so I used raisins. I have a gas oven, so it took about an hour to bake. I could not wait till it cooled so I took a small spoonful and put a little almond milk over it. Wow! This is so good it could suffice as a dessert!

I love oatmeal and pumpkin, so was fairly certain I would like this. Turns out, I was right. I used the optional pecans, toasted. Almost like having dessert for breakfast, although I did not think it was too sweet. Texture was tender, loved the spices, perfect with a little warmed milk. Thanks for posting.
