Baked Oatmeal/Porridge.

Here it is at last, the baked oatmeal we had in Pennsylvania earlier this year. YUM!

Alaskaboy and I tend to make a double batch, in a large lasagne tray, and it lasts us the whole working week; refrigerates very well. Don't know about freezing though, haven't tried it. Do try the smaller batch though first to see if you like it. Hope you do!

This makes enough for a square cake or lasagne dish. (approx 9”x9” or 20cmx20cm)
Preheat oven to 175C (350F)
serves 4-6. Very filling!

1/2 cup vegetable oil (or 1/4 oil & 1/4 c apple sauce. All sauce = too sweet.)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
3 cups rolled oats
1 tsp salt (optional)
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
Optional extra: chopped tinned apple, pear or peach pieces (drained of juice)

Mix oil, sugar and eggs in a mixing bowl
Add remaining ingredients (except fruit) and mix well.
If using fruit, cover the bottom of the non-metal baking dish with it, then pour mixture over the top.
Cook for 35-40mins. (Check after 25-30 if fan forced to see how it's going)

Serve with a dash of milk and any extra dried fruit/nuts you'd like.

This one sounds interesting, I have just mixed up a batch of Jamie Olivers "Pukkola" from The Return of the Naked Chef, which is like a version of Bircher mueslie. Might have to try your baked oatmeal one when the pukkola is all gone.

Thanks for visiting my new blog, it always helps to know there are others people out there following along and experiencing similar things.
