So good, easy to customize. I added more cinnamon, vanilla, a diced honey crisp apple, a smashed ripe banana, a cup of raisins & 2 tablespoons of leftover coconut & sliced almonds from another recipe. At 40 minutes it was almost done but not quite because of my additions, so I turned off the oven & left it in for a few more minutes & it was perfect. Like a crazy good Oatmeal cookie..now I have a great quick Oatmeal recipe! Thanks, will make this again & again.
Works with old fashioned oats. Next time I make I think I’ll put in a sliced banana. If I had cream on hand, I think it would have been that much more heavenly served with a drop.
I loved it! Can’t buy the oatmeal I like in the store anymore so I’ve been looking for a recipe to make my own. I added 2 tsp. vanilla, 1/2 and 1/2 cinnamon and nutmeg, 1/2 C raisins, a bunch of chopped pecans and cut back the brown sugar to 3/4 of a cup. I’m baking it right now. The last time I made it I stuck with the 1 C sugar and it was too sweet for me. Also didn’t add the nuts. I cut it into squares, wrapped separately and froze. I just snack on it or eat for breakfast. This is a winner and I will definitely keep using it!
Made this following the exact recipe and froze it in squares. Delightful out of the microwave with a splash of milk!
I don't want to be too harsh because I did make some changes, but it didn't turn out very well for me. Based on the reviews I halved the sugar, I used 1.5 c milk instead of 1, and I used old fashioned oats. I think maybe the quick cooking oats are pretty crucial for it to turn out the right texture. Mine was very dry and crumbly, even though I added extra milk, the oats were pretty dry. The sweetness was fine, I was glad I halved it. Just wasn't what I was looking for in a baked oatmeal, maybe I'll try again with quick oats.
Found this recipe many many years ago in a Country Woman Magazine. Have been making it exactly like this. Well, I sometimes double it and put in 9x13 pan. it is the most asked for recipe, as I make it for group gatherings. I often make the night before, refrigerate and bake in the morning. So easy, so yummy. Thank you Arlene for sharing this recipe with us.
Easy and delicious.
Exactly what I was looking for! Easy prep, DELISH!! Tastes like a warm oatmeal cookie. I added raisins to the top and I used 1/2 the amount of brown sugar. My fav recipe!!
I doubled the recipe but didn't double the sugar (I did a little over 1 C.). I cut up and peeled 2 apples and added that and raisins. Cooked for 45 mins. Added milk when I served it. It's so amazing. I also added a little more cinnamon!
My family loved this! I also reduced the sugar a bit the second time I made this. Now the grandchildren actually ask for the "oatmeal cake" for breakfast. But it's wonderful warm in a bowl with some milk added - delicious!
