I have to admit, I’ve never really been a huge hot oatmeal fan. I mean, I like it in cookies just fine and my oatmeal bread is delicious – but a hot bowl of oatmeal? Yeah… not a huge fan. Now, if that’s all there was to eat in site – I could choke down some oatmeal with about 7.6 pounds of brown sugar & a gallon of butter on top. Basically, you could take a picture of how I make a bowl of oatmeal & put it on the cover of a book titled ‘This is how you get diabetes’.

But, recently – I’ve come across a recipe for a Baked Oatmeal that includes a box of yellow cake mix (um, did someone say CAKE?) I was like… SOLD. I’m so gonna try that.

This Baked Oatmeal recipe reminds me a lot of a dump cobbler recipe, both in the preparation & the taste. It tastes almost just like a warm, kind-of pudding-y, fruit cobbler.  I used a mix of peaches, strawberries, & raspberries but you can use a mix of whatever fruits you personally enjoy. I really enjoy blackberries in this!

It’s cake… and cobbler… but it’s also oatmeal. And I didn’t have to pour the entire Dixie Crystal’s sugar factory on top to eat my oatmeal. Total recipe win!

It’s so good that not only would it make a wonderful breakfast, but it would make a delectable desert as well.

It’s really pretty amazing.
