Crazy Chocolate Cake.
SATURDAY- Leslie had a friend over for (part of) the week end. I tried a new make ahead oatmeal for breakfast. I found "BAKED PUMPKIN OATMEAL" at Lynn's Kitchen Adventure". I mixed the dry ingredients (and butter) on Friday night, and told the first one up to add the wet ingredients and bake.
That was totally unnecessary. This is a baked oatmeal that you keep in your fridge. In the morning, remove what you want, heat it up and add milk.
The only change I made to her recipe was to use old fashioned oats instead of quick cooking.
We really liked this. (in fact I am making more tonight for next week.) The pumpkin is very mild (but you still have that added vegetable benefit). The brown sugar and cinnamon are flavoured just right. I think this is an easy and more healthful alternative for kids than the pre-packaged instant envelopes.
Have fun planning this week if this is something new for you.
