My dad and step-mother are in town right now, so I auditioned a version of this dish for them (we'll probably end up serving it at a big potluck brunch in a few weeks). I started with this recipe, but made some modifications. Chances are good I'll make it with a layer of bananas on the bottom next time (inspired by the coffee shop version).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.
- 4 C rolled oats
- .5 C oat bran
- 1 C brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1.5 tsp salt (I used homemade lemon salt)
- 1.5 C milk (I used skim) - if you don't warm it, your butter will congeal. your call.
- .75 C / 6 oz melted butter
- 3 beaten eggs
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 C dried currants
Mix oats, oat bran, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, mix together the milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix in the currants. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
Bake until slightly brown around the edges and pretty dry, about 40 minutes.
