Amish Baked Oatmeal is a great alternative to mush which is what we called cooked oatmeal when I was young.
The pin for Amish Baked Oatmeal It is taken from the Gooseberry Best-Ever Casseroles Cookbook. The blog is Mostly Homemade Mom. I follow this one because I like homemade recipes. Another pin I have is Amish Baked Oatmeal It is not a blog that I follow, but I have used the recipe that I pinned. It varies in that it is double the size and will fill the pan deeper than the other one. It also has cinnamon that I did not use.
This is my version:
Amish Baked Oatmeal
2 eggs, beaten1 C milk or light cream 1/2 C pure maple syrup1/4 C butter, melted1 tsp. pure vanilla1/2 tsp salt (omit if using salted butter)1 1/2 tsp baking powder3 C old fashioned oats
Mix together liquid ingredients; add baking powder and oats stirring well after each. Place in buttered or sprayed 8x8 inch glass dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until center is set. Eat hot or cold with milk. Add fruit, cinnamon and apples, or other additions before cooking, but try it this way first. For Coconut Baked Oatmeal use coconut oil and coconut milk. Yum.
