Amish Oatmeal

Back in 2008 when I was living in merry ole' England the woman who cooked for us made the best breakfasts. About once a week she'd make this dish--Amish Oatmeal--and she would serve it with cream and fruit. It was what we all looked forward to every week. And she didn't always make it the same day every week so it made for much anticipation. My second favorite breakfast food she would make were these fantastic waffles. But I don't really remember anything more about them than that. Whereas Amish Oatmeal was so beloved that I managed to get the recipe and make it for myself now. My favorite way to eat it is warm with sliced strawberries and cream on top, but when strawberries aren't to be had plain is good, or just cream, or a little brown sugar. Pretty much anything you would normally put on oatmeal.

Incidentally, I don't actually care for oatmeal. I have tried very hard to learn to like oatmeal because it's filling and I know it's good for me, but I just don't like the texture. This however has a totally different texture. It's a baked oatmeal, and in many ways is more akin to an oatmeal cookie than to actual oatmeal. Basically it's amazing.
