I first had this when a friend brought us a meal after our baby was born. She said you can eat this lots of ways: for breakfast, for dessert, with milk, with out milk or with icecream. The other night I envisioned this Oatmeal Bake with a Gingerbread flavor and pears.
So now I am trying my craving out, enjoy! This is one of our 5 Must Try Christmas Breakfast Recipes from Inspired by Family Magazine.
6 cups oatmeal
4 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
1.5 cup brown sugar
3 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup molasses (if your molasses is strong in flavor or if your not a big fan of molasses/gingerbread flavor reduce amount)
- Mix together first 7 ingredients.
- Stir the other 5 ingredients in another bowl then add this mix to your dry ingredients.
- Place in baking dish and layer on top thin pear slices. You can also dice them up and put them in the dry ingredients.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes in a lightly greased pan. Make enough for 6-8 people.
To reheat add a little milk or water, cover and microwave for 30 to 60 seconds.
