Baked " Cranberry Nut Bread" Oatmeal

"For years I never ate oatmeal due to the "mushy" texture. After seeing a baked oatmeal prepared on FoodNetwork, it inspired me to come up with a few baked oatmeal recipes inspired by some popular baked goods. This oatmeal has a much more firm texture. Check out my recipes for Baked "Apple Oatmeal Raisin Cookie" Oatmeal and Baked "Banana Bread" Oatmeal."

    Well, although used all the ingredients you listed, I did change several of them, increasing them, actually! I used a full cup of dried cranberries, half a cup of pecans & a very generous teaspoon of the orange zest!, & we loved it all! A wonderful flavor combo for oatmeal! Thanks for this great keeper!

    I really love oatmeal and think this turned out quite tasty. I'm only giving it 3 stars because I had to make some changes after trying the Banana Bread version of this recipe and finding it just too dry. After looking up another Baked Oatmeal recipe that I really like, I made the following changes: 1 cup quick oats, 3/4 cup milk (made from powdered milk since I was out of fresh) and baking time reduced to 35 minutes for a large dish. I also subbed walnuts for pecans and left out the optional ingredients. The shorter cooking time made a big difference. It wasn't mushy (due to reduced liquid) but wasn't dry either. I love having the nuts included in the oatmeal and will throw them in whenever I make baked oatmeal in the future.

    Delicious!! Loved the brown sugar with the cranberries. I didn't have any orange zest so I just added 1/4 tsp of orange juice and that gave it just a hint of orange flavor - perfect. As with your other 2 baked oatmeals I've tried, I halved the recipe and cooked it in 2 ramekins - ate one warm the day I made it, ate the other cold the next day. Wonderful both ways - thanks for sharing your recipe!

    Delicious. I made half of it and got 2 ramekins. I used orange zest and didn't measure. It was probably more than asked. I loved it that way. We loved it. Thanks Swissms :) Made for PRMR tag game

    I never ate oatmeal for the same reason, until last year when I discovered that baked oatmeals didn't have to be mushy. We enjoyed this recipe so much we made it two days in a row! The first day in four 6oz ramekins & the second day in an 8x8 baking dish. I left out the optional orange zest, as my cranberries were orange flavored & it's quite a powerful orange flavor so I didn't think we'd need any extra. Other than that, made as directed. I loved the creme brulee topping & even my picky toddler at this "all gone!" The amounts are perfect as written, giving each ingredient a chance to stand out. Thanks for sharing your creation, swissms!

I love cooking for family and friends. I especially enjoy baking...it is like combining art and science to create something extraordinary. I am most known for making desserts like Recipe #336060. My pet peeve: when people sign-up to bring dessert to a pot-luck or dinner party and they bring something pre-made from the store. My friends and family now know to always let me bring the dessert. :) I enjoy traveling and believe that one of the best ways to experience a culture is through food. I have lived in Germany, Spain and Switzerland, and currently live in the US. My rating system: 5 stars - Excellent! Delicious! Could not be better...will make often. 4 stars - Very good! May tweak slightly. 3 stars - Good base recipe. Will need to tweak. 2 stars - Ok. Will keep looking.
