Reviews for Amish Baked Oatmeal
"Good. I used the 9X13 inch pan and the oatmeal BARELY covered the bottom. I'd say double or maybe even triple the recipe. I also used brown sugar. This was delicious, and I will make it again."
"I don't know if this is truly Amish, but oh my goodness, is it ever delicious! I followed ingredient list, method, and a 9x13 pan as written in the recipe."
"I loved baked oatmeal and this is a wonderful basic recipe. I've added fruit to it or top with maple syrup and whipped cream."
"My husband loved it. I will make it often for him."
"Good flavor but nothing to cheer about , Hard to understand why you would use a 13x9 dish I used a third smaller and still had enough size. Would not make again."
"Did not have much taste. Will not make again."
"I agree with other reviewers: cut the sugar and butter in half, and change the size of the baking dish. I use 1/4 cup of pure brown cane sugar, and substitute 1/8 cup of coconut oil for the butter (just my preference--healthier, and adds a hint of coconut flavor). I bake it for 20-25 minutes in a glass bread loaf dish. FREAKING DELICIOUS! Only serves 2, maybe 3 people. The 4 star rating is not for taste, but because of the adjustments needed with sugar, butter, baking dish and number of servings. Those need to be pretty close for 5 stars. That said, with the adjustments, this is the best oatmeal I've ever had!"
"Have made this several times, use 1/4 cup of sugar instead of 1/2 cup."
"Double this and my adult kids devour it - a family favorite. I use brown vs, white sugar."
"This is excellent. However, I quadruple this recipe and then it is the perfect amount for a 9x13 pan. Then I would say it feeds around 10 people. I cut back on the sugar a little and do half brown sugar half white sugar, and use a little less butter. You can compare this to the brown sugar baked oatmeal recipe on this site. That makes much more in a 9x13, a little too much, and isn't quite as good."
