This was only OK for us. Even though we knew this was really just a breakfast oatmeal recipe, It wasn't nearly sweet enough or creamy enough to be called dessert. I added a little (maybe 1/2 teaspoon) of cinnamon to the sautéed apples too, and we still didn't detect any cinnamon taste at all. And I don't think it's an issue of my cinnamon being too old (just bought it about a month ago). The recipe was fine as a basic oatmeal recipe, but next time I'll add about 1/3 cup more brown sugar and maybe 1/4 cup more cream so the caramel is thinner and more of a creamy sauce to smother the apples in. Made for the 2013 My-3-Chefs event.
