Tempt My Tummy Tuesday - Orange Baked Oatmeal

I've been wanting to participate in this blog carnival for a while.  I love food.  Eating it, making it and sharing.  This is right up my alley.

Orange Baked Oatmeal

3 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter melted
2 eggs
2 cups milk
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
the zest and juice of 1 orange
1 tsp. almond extract
1 tsp. vanilla extract (you could use 2 tsp. of vanilla if you don't like/have almond)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  
Grease a 9 X 13 baking dish.  (I use the butter wrapper to grease the pan.)
Melt and cool the butter.
While that's cooling, combine all other ingredients except for oats.
Once butter is cooled, add that to the mixture. 
Add oats.
Pour into 9 X 13.
Bake for approximately 1 hour.

This is very easy and delicious.  It's great for a brunch or breakfast potluck or even for a family with a brand new little one.  This reheats very nicely!

Thanks for stopping by!  For more great Tummy Tempters visit Blessed With Grace.

  1. I love oatmeal so this is very appealing. I wonder if I could convince my boys to trust it?

  2. My husband tries to eat oatmeal daily. I should surprise him with this treat for a weekend breakfast.

  3. This sounds great. I am glad you joined us for Tempt My Tummy Tuesday! Hope you come back, again.

  4. My boys all love oatmeal, I'll have to give this a try.

  5. Love love love Baked Oatmeal!! But I never thought of adding almond and orange to it! I usually add nuts, seeds, berries, but the orange sounds great! I'll have to try that!!!

  6. I've made baked oatmeal, but never with orange, it looks good!
