This was a nice, creamy oatmeal, but my family and I all thought it was very bland. I did try adding some cinnamon, and that helped, but I still felt like it was missing something. It also took over 40 minutes to bake, but that might be because I used "Irish Style Oats" that weren't steel cut and I substituted soy milk for the milk. Overall, it was a nice change from the norm, but I don't think I would take the time to make it again. Sorry, Jude! I love all your other recipes!

I found this recipe in "Moosewood Restaurants New Classics" cookbook. I made it this morning using 1% lowfat milk (all I had) and I added 1/2 tsp of vanilla. Baked for 30 minutes. I served it piping hot with a little brown sugar and soy milk. Delicious!

Me again - I made this again with pears in place of apples, a little cinnamon, soy milk in place of milk and no salt - Better than the first batch - I am so excited about this recipe! I make a batch and eat on it for a few days.
