Breakfast this morning smells so good I had to post the recipe. It’s an Amish recipe I found online at cooks.com or food.com or something like that. My whole house smells like cinnamon right now.
So this morning I let the chickens out of their coop with a cool whip tub full of feed, threw down some kibble for the kitties, and crammed a banana into the Little Boy. While the coffee was brewing, I threw together this:
3 cups rolled oats (we were a few tablespoons shy of this today, so I added some shredded coconut to fill it out)
1 cup brown sugar (or less to taste)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) of melted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup dried fruit (this morning it was cherries and raisins)
350 degree oven. Mix together oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. In a smaller bowl, beat together eggs, milk, vanilla and melted butter. Add to dry ingredients. Mix well and stir in dried fruit. Spread into 9 x 13 baking dish. Bake 40 minutes or until done.
It’s pretty easy to whip up, and tastes like you’re eating dessert for breakfast. We pour vanilla or plain yogurt on top, and have apple slices on the side.
