Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

 We are still enjoying some nice weather here in the Dallas area, and I so love being out by my waterfall.

 This cute seasonal teapot was found in a thrift store in Columbus, Ohio, last year.  Don't you love the piece of wheat as the handle, the basket weave design, and the harvest of fruits and vegetables around the bottom?  The top is a pumpkin with more fruits.  It doesn't pour very nicely, but it sure is cute!

This yummy Fall treat is from Cooking With Carlee.  It sounded so good to me and I've made it twice already!  I asked Carlee if she minded if I shared it, and she was most agreeable.  Thanks, Carlee!  Her original recipe can be found here.

I eat this for breakfast, along with my egg and melted cheese, fresh berries, and a cup of tea, but I also eat it as dessert at lunch time, after my salad.  The recipe only has 1/4 cup of maple syrup, but it is sweet enough to satisfy my sweet tooth.   I love that it has plain yogurt in it, too.  I had some leftover pumpkin puree in the freezer and this was an excellent way to use it. 

1 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup maple syrup (Yes, I used the real thing!)
2 large eggs
1 cup plain yogurt
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (I added 1 tablespoon, because I like things spicy!)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk
2 1/2 cups rolled oats

Preheat oven to 350 degrees,  and spray baking dishes (use 6-9  ramekins, an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish or equivalent).

Whisk together pumpkin, syrup, eggs and yogurt until well combined. Stir in pumpkin pie spice, salt, baking powder and vanilla.

Mix in milk and rolled oats, and pour into prepared ramekins or pan. 

Bake for 30-35 minutes in ramekins, closer to 45 minutes in a baking dish.  The center should be set.

It's delicious served warm with some whipped cream or maple syrup.  My son, who is here with me, warms it up and puts a scoop  of vanilla ice cream on top!

I get 9 servings out of  this when baked in a square pan, and I just re-warm the serving in the microwave for about 30-40 seconds.

 Recently, Margie from Tea in the Valley sent me three sample of David's tea and a cute Hello Kitty card that she made with fun stickers, shown on the right.  The teas were Red Velvet, Chocolate Chili Chai, and a Baklava tea.  They were all wonderful!  Judith from Lavender Cottage and Gardening sent me some David's Pumpkin Chai tea (oh my!) and a beautifully embroidered tea towel, handmade from a fellow blogger, and a handmade card made by Judith.  Aren't blogging sisters so thoughtful?  Thank you Margie and Judith!! 

 Judith thought this towel was perfect for me and I certainly think so, too! 

I am sharing this with these lovely parties:

Thank you for your visit!  xo

  4. Kitty, the baked pumpkin oatmeal sounds wonderful! I'm cooking steel cut oats right now for my breakfast, and I'd love to make yours soon. Love the piece of wheat as the handle on your sweet teapot that doesn't pour well. As long as it's cute right? I soooo agree that blogging sisters are very thoughtful! Wishing you a nice week. xo

  5. I am so glad you liked it! I love your son's style of putting ice cream on it! I am a little jealous of you getting to have it outside by the waterfall. I hope you have a great week!

  12. Hi Kitty,
    I love your little teapot. It's so perfect for the fall season and how lucky you are to be having tea time outside. The pumpkin treat does look very good too.

  13. Lovely pumpkin! Your teapot is so cute! We wouldn't dare sit wet and cold. Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  14. Your teapot really is cute, Kitty! I couldn't help but think about my father when you mentioned having your eggs and melted cheese for breakfast. My mother used to make him an egg and melted cheese every morning. We kids weren't allowed to have the cheese because it was for him only. The pumpkin oatmeal sounds delicious too. Our weather has turned quite chilly so no more sitting outside for me. Thank you for sharing with us today and enjoy your wonderful gifts. Such thoughtful ladies!

    Autumn blessings,

  15. Baked pumpkin oatmeal sounds so good. My mouth is watering. I bet you love mail call!!!! Lovely goodies you received. I love embroidery and of course, tea! Fun little Autumn teapot.

  16. Oh, I love that tea towel!!! Embroidering tea towels is one of my favorite things to do. And the pumpkin oatmeal looks wonderful. I will have to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing it. Oh -- and the teapot is pretty, too. I have never seen one like it.

  17. Your tea towel is adorable, Kitty! My grandma used to do embroidery. Your pumpkin oatmeal looks great! Love your waterfall too. We took the pump out of our water feature so it's just a quiet pond now...had to do that before winter. Our weather has been really nice so far, and I'm thankful for that. Have a good week, Kitty!
    Hugs, Beth

  18. That's such a cute tea towel embroidery. Sweet gift from a blogging friend. The pumpkin oatmeal sounds delicious and hearty for a fall breakfast. Enjoy that good weather while it lasts!

  19. Oh, the teapot is so sweet, Kitty. Isn't it nice that you can still sit out and enjoy an afternoon cup of tea. Here it is very cool and wet. The pumpkin oatmeal will be the perfect thing for these cooler days - thanks for passing along the recipe! Lovely gifts from your blog sisters - I really love that cute tea towel. Hope your week is lovely! xo Karen

    Happy Fall Blessings, Roxy

  26. Oh, I love that tea towel. Judith sent me a similar one as part of Stephanie's teacup exchange. The baked oatmeal sounds delicious, perfect for this time of year.
    I thought that was a twisted corn on the cob at first on your tea pot! haha wheat makes so much more sense.
    Glad you can still enjoy your waterfall outside. It's definitely getting chilly here! xo Deborah

  27. Hmmmm, this sounds so good! Will certainly have to try it, especially as the temps are cooler now. Your gifts are lovely and how sweet of these ladies! I think having a waterfall would be so relaxing. You know, the sound of water and looking at a fire in the fireplace are like "therapy" for me! :)


  28. A lovely autumnal tea tray Kitty and your cake looks delicious. Everything you bake looks delicious and you know I've made many of your recipes.
    I'm glad you like the treats I sent you and those from friend Margie as well. Enjoy!

  29. Hi Kitty! That teapot is wonderful and it looks like you scored some great treats :). Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment--I really appreciate it, especially since I haven't been around much lately.

  30. I love your little teapot...and the pumpkin oatmeal sounds heavenly....a must try for sure.
    I am making the cheese ball tonight so all the flavors marry before serving to the Bunco Babes...:)

  31. That looks delcious, and that little teapot is so cute! Hope all is well with you!

  32. What an adorable teapot Kitty! I think pumpkin and oats is a perfect pairing and I love that it bakes and serves like a cake!

  34. Love the towel and the teapot. SO nice to be remembered by thoughtful friends! Cheers!

  35. Hi Kitty- oh this recipe sounds so GOOD - and I have all the ingredients on hand. I made apple crisp today with the new Tuvia (sp) natural lower-calorie/low sugar brown sugar to test it out and it was great.....not as good as REAL brown sugar, but sometimes a gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do! I will try this recipe when the crisp is gone. : - )

    The teapot is adorable. I had one like that years ago and sold it and now looking at yours I sure wish I hadn't.....but again, a gal's gotta

    Judith and Margie are AWESOME wonderful Canadian ladies whom I adore, too. Your gifts from them are so perfect, and couldn't have gone to a sweeter recipient. Margie I have gotten to know through the recent tea cup swap - and Judith is a long-time blogger sister. ♥♥♥ Hugs to you!

  36. Oh this does sound good! Gotta give it a try! :)

  37. This looks totally yum! I think my kids will enjoy this while home from college over winter break. Thanks for a great-looking recipe!

  38. Love love love it! Thanks for sharing with us at Weekend Potluck.

  39. Hi, Kitty! It's SOOO nice to hear from you! Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments about my fall decor--and about our little chickadees! :) And you found that darling tea pot where???? :) Here???? How did I miss out on that find?! Nice souvenir from home, I'm sure! Enjoy it, and think of my being a little jealous every time you do! ~Zuni
