Breakfast Time: Baked Maple Oatmeal

Looking for something yummy for breakfast?
This is one of my new go-to favorites!
 It is delicious and quite simple to throw together...what could be better than that?

 Baked Maple Oatmeal
1/4 c. (1/2 stick) butter
3 c. old-fashioned rolled oats (do not substitute quick, instant, or steel-cut oats)
1/2 c. raw, maple, granulated, or brown sugar
 2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. nutmeg or cinnamon
1 c. whole milk
2 lg. eggs
 2 Tbsp. maple or Golden syrup
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is preheating, unwrap butter and place in 8x8 inch or 9x9 inch baking pan. Place the pan on the center rack of oven and let the butter melt as oven heats. (As soon as the butter is melted remove pan from oven or butter may scorch.)
Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Whisk together milk, eggs, and vanilla in a separate bowl, pour over the dry ingredients and mix together with a sturdy spoon until everything is evenly combined and wet.
Scrape into the pan with melted butter and stir until most of the butter is incorporated, but there are little pockets of melted butter still visible at the corners.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
Serve hot with extra butter, whole milk, cream, or maple syrup!

Thank you, Rebecca!

Mmmm! Always looking for new ways to make oatmeal (even though I've always hated it, haha)! I eat it now, but I have to work with it. And my kids LOVE oatmeal.
