Comfort food is my favorite category of cooking. I finally made a recipe I had on my "to make" list from a cookbook called The Baking Book (forget author). The recipe is from a B&B the author went to in Lancaster County, PA.
Anyway, it is so simple, yet really delicous (tastes a bit like sticky toffee pudding to me!). My family gave it a 9.5 out of 10 (I always make them rate new recipes!). I hope you enjoy it.
Baked Oatmeal (paraphrased)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
3 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup whole milk
Serve with a compote of peaches or strawberries and a small pitcher of cream.
(I did a reduction with a bottle of cherries from Trader Joe's I had in the pantry, to which I added sugar and a few cloves--was delish)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 2 quart souffle dish (or other like vessel) with a non-stick spray.
In a large bowl, add eggs and whisk until beaten. Mix in the oil and sugar; combine well. Add the oats, baking powder, salt, and milk; mix together well.
Pour mixture into the prepared dish and bake 35-45 minutes, or until nicely golden brown. Serve warm with the fruit and cream.
