Baked Oatmeal

This is a wonderful  Bed and Breakfast type of recipe.  I was browsing around one of my 'go to' sites, Our Best Bites  and came across it.  This would be perfect to warm up the kids after a chilly morning of playing in the snow.  I might try this for when we have out of town guests and need something easy enough to make after a late night of too much fun.  It turns out like very hearty homemade oatmeal, but with that extra texture from baking.

You will need (makes 8 servings)
3 cups oats (not quick-cooking)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries, or other dried fruit
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs

-Preheat oven to 350
-In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients

-In a small bowl, whisk together wet ingredients
-Combine wet and dry ingredients, mix well
-Pour mixture into a greased casserole, deep pie plate, or an 8x8 dish 
-Bake for 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown
-Serve immediately with a splash warm milk (if milk is cold it will cool down everything too much)

This smells so amazing coming out of the oven.  I had a hard time snapping shots due to  my toddler pulling on my shirt while using some choice toddler words towards me.   I then promptly scooped out some oatmeal, scooped up the toddler and we snuggled on the couch with a bowlful of this belly filling stuff.
