Recipe of the week..

Did I mention I'm in love with breakfast food? I love cooking and love finding recipes that don't need tweaking. I made this today and its super yum, super easy. I like to mix it all the night before, cover, refridgerate then bake it in the morning, it really does make for a nice soft almost cake texture. ENJOY!

Baked oatmeal

3 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant)
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup skim milk
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
additional brown sugar, for serving
additional milk, for serving

Mix all ingredients (except the additional brown sugar & additional milk) together.
Pour into a greased square glass baking dish and bake at 350 F for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick tests clean.
Scoop each portion into a small bowl, then pour a splash of milk over each- it should be just enough to be absorbed by the oatmeal (not soupy).
Sprinkle each with some brown sugar to taste and serve warm.
