This recipe is an absolute no brainer ! and this is a real treat for people who do not like to have oats in the same old mundane way! with milk :-) Just spare 30-40 minutes and you have a yummy breakfast or you can very well have it for dessert :-)
Ingredients for oatmeal:
Oats- 1 ½ cups
Butter- 1 tbsp melted
Brown sugar- ¼ cup packed tightly
Milk - 100 ml
Egg - 1
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Baking powder- 1 tsp
For Apple compote
1 tbsp butter
4 Tbsp sugar
A dash of vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Powder the oats in a blender. Mix the powdered oats, sugar, baking powder, essence, egg and milk together without any lumps. Finally add the melted butter and mix well. If you are looking for a soft texture pour it in a shallow baking dish and bake it in for 15 to 20 minutes until the top layer looks firm.
While the oatmeal is baking, peel core and coarsely chop the apples. Melt butter in a saucepan; add apples along with cinnamon, sugar and vanilla. Stir everything together, cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to avoid burning of the sugar.
Serve baked oatmeal with Apple compote
P.S: Just look at my blog background for the baked oatmeal pic... but anyways.. m gonna post a better one as soon as I get home !
