Baked Oatmeal is a childhood favorite breakfast- all grown up.

Old Fashioned Baked Oatmeal for a delicious twist on breakfast. Get the recipe from Cosmopolitan Cornbread.

This twist on oatmeal takes the classic breakfast food and makes it a delicious, substantial dish.

I recently shared this recipe in a video on my YouTube channel and the response was overwhelming saying that I needed to publish it here on the website.

Baked oatmeal is just like a bowl of the classic breakfast, only it gives it almost a cake-like texture.

You can play around with the flavors and what you add to it: chopped nuts, cinnamon, apples, banana, chocolate chips. The possibilities are practically endless. You could make it every day of the week and every day have a different version.

To Make This Recipe You Will Need:

  • mixing bowl
  • eggs
  • brown sugar
  • rolled oats
  • vanilla extract
  • baking powder
  • sea salt
  • milk
  • a baking dish (I use a 10 inch cast iron skillet)
  • butter
  • Toppings (see instructions below)

You can watch me making this recipe in the video found here.

To begin, you’ll preheat your oven to 375° (F) degrees.

Beat two eggs in a mixing bowl.

Add in brown sugar, baking powder, sea salt, vanilla extract, and rolled oats.

You’ll add enough milk to create a thick batter consistency. This will take anywhere between 2 – 3 cups. I would start with about 1 1/2 cups and then add a little at a time until you get to the right consistency.

After you make this, you will get a feel for how much milk you will want. If you want a softer baked oatmeal, you would of course make the batter a touch thinner.

Pour the mixture into a buttered 10 inch cast iron skillet, or other baking pan. Spread it out evenly.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the oatmeal is golden around the edges.

Allow the oatmeal to rest for about 5 minutes before serving.

Serve the baked oatmeal with some fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey if you like.

You could also pour over a little cream. It’s really up to you.

Variations of Baked Oatmeal

Here are a few different ways you can change this dish up and get creative:

  • You can change up this baked oatmeal by adding a half teaspoon of cinnamon.
  • You could use maple syrup instead of brown sugar.
  • Sprinkle in a handful of chocolate chips.
  • Try adding a diced apple and cinnamon to the batter. Maybe drizzle a little caramel sauce over the top and serve it with a scoop of ice cream for an amazing dessert!

There are so many different ways to make this. You can simply use your imagination!

  1. This is a great recipe. Being disabled a simple, quick recipe is mandatory. This came together in under five minutes and uses only one mixing bowl. I always make a recipe exactly as written the first time. I did throw on some toasted coconut flakes, blueberries, and maple syrup when it came out of the oven. Next time I’m going to put the coconut and some pecan pieces in the batter. Also add some honey and maple syrup in equal portions into the batter and take out half the brown sugar. Making it more granola like which is a personal preference of my family. This one is a keeper.

  2. I’ll have to give this a try-it looks great! I noticed you had changed your spice jars. I like these much better than the wire lid ones. Due to my decreased hand mobility I prefer snap on lids. Do you mind me asking where are they from?

  3. This was so incredibly good! I made it with the blueberries and maple syrup just like in the video. I can’t wait to make it again with some other fruits. Maybe the apple & cinnamon you talked about. :D
