Creme Brulee Amish Baked Oatmeal

Have you tried baked oatmeal before?? It’s so delicious, I can hardly stand it! We are huge oatmeal lovers, but this Amish creme brulee version wins the grand prize!

A few years ago some friends went out to brunch with us (yes, we are total brunchers and if you haven’t caught that bug, by all means JUMP IN!!) and we had this glorious amount of food delivered to our table. When in a group, always order many things so you can sample the menu, am I right?! I knew, absolutely KNEW that the french toast at Gourmandise was going to be my winner and was flabbergasted (when’s the last time you wrote that word? 😏) when it was the oatmeal!

Now, you know I am an older woman at heart, so it shouldn’t surprise you that I LOVED the oatmeal, but to be the winner? That takes something special. Well, since I’ve been on this baked oatmeal kick, why not try a Gourmandise Creme Brulee Amish Baked Oatmeal?!

Just try to not pick off the entire topping, it is HEAVEN!!

What is Amish Baked Oatmeal?

Amish baked oatmeal like a warm oatmeal cookie but in casserole form that is made with oats, milk and a few other ingredients you will already have on hand. Traditional oatmeal is like cereal with a creamy porridge consistency. Baked oatmeal is more like a casserole or bread pudding. It is super versatile with endless amounts of add-ins or toppings. I’ll go into that more later in this post.

Jewish Apple Cake

Jewish apple cake is a moist, dense cake brimming with chunks of cinnamon sugar coated apple. It is the perfect fall dessert!

Ok, I feel like I have no business writing about a tradition that belongs to another, but every year my instagram starts filling with posts about an apple or honey cake for Shabbat or other Jewish gatherings and celebrations and my curiosity was piqued. What was this glorious dessert and do I dare make my own?

I have spent all year testing recipes and I have to say, a cake filled with layers of apples, HECK YES. You need it in your life!!! It’s such a sweet and simple cake and my goodness does it hit the spot! It’s moist and flavorful, but it’s especially unique in that there’s no frosting! I love a cake that can stand on its own!!

Brown Sugar Apple Dip

Brown sugar apple dip is only 3 simple ingredients and it’s the most addicting and creamy fruit dip. I seriously can’t stop eating it! Be sure you have plenty of apples in the house because you’re going to be dipping them until the dip is gone!
I served this brown sugar apple dip last month at a baby shower and then forgot to ever post it. That’s kind of how life goes. I get so busy I suddenly realized I didn’t follow up on doing something. We served this dip with fresh apple slices and Cade seriously made sure that I left him his own personal serving at home.
Anyway, none of that really matters when you’ve got brown sugar apple dip staring you in the face. Man, I love me some brown sugar! Shhhh…I always take a pinch or two and eat it plain. Do you??
Sometimes it’s hard to think up something yummy for an after school snack or something a little different to take to a party and I think this dip is the perfect thing.

Ingredients for Brown Sugar Apple Dip

There are only 3 simple ingredients needed and it all comes together in just 5 minutes. Here is your ingredients list:

  • Cream Cheese – the block style cream cheese is preferred, not the whipped spread, and it’s important that it’s at room temperature so it mixes easily with the sugar and vanilla
  • Brown Sugar – adds all the sweetness and balances the tanginess of the cream cheese
  • Vanilla – adds delicious flavor

The measurements for each of the ingredients can be found in the recipe card down below.
