Amish Baked Oatmeal

Amish Baked Oatmeal

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit (optional)
This recipe was sent to us by David C. who says this is an old family recipe and a favorite of his. I gave it try this morning (June 2013). I used equal parts raisins and cranberries to make up the 1/2 cup of dried fruit. I enjoyed this dish. The butter transforms the way the oats taste and it was fun to have a slice of oatmeal instead of the usual bowl. The only adjustment I'd make next time is to reduce the salt to 1/2 teaspoon.

Amish Baked Oatmeal Recipe

It's called Amish Oatmeal because that what the card says in my mom's recipe file. She doesn't remember why she called it Amish. By any name, this is a great breakfast.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank davidchicks for this recipe.

Made it in an 8x8 baking dish. Turned out great. Topped it with banana slices and a drizzle of maple syrup. Terrific.

Made it over the weekend. Real good with fresh blueberries instead of dried fruit. I used a 9x9 pan and that seemed about right.

Forget dry fruit... serve it with any fresh fruit on top and it's delicious. Try bananas, blueberries or strawberries. Great!

This didn't turn out for me. It smelt terrible and tasted even worse. I'm sorry but I wont try this again.

I substituted anise extract for the vanilla extract and added anise seed on top. I served it with fresh garden cantaloupe and that was a WINNER.

We will have this again! I tossed in 1/2 cup of raisins and told my children it was oatmeal cookie bake. They loved it.

We recently had baked oatmeal for the first time, but it does not seem to match any recipe I am finding. It was not solid like a bar or cookie, but loose grains and excellent, served as a dinner side dish in the PA Dutch country. Any help on a recipe like that?

I thought it was great just the way it is presented. I added sweetened dried cranberries and it was delicious. I am not for really sweet things, so I didn't think that this was too sweet at all. Thanks for the recipe.

Added a tablespoon of honey instead of the sugar. Then, topped it with sweet applesauce after removing from oven. A heavenly combination!

I thought it was a little sweet, so I'd cut down the sugar just a bit, but delicious!
