Blueberry Baked Oatmeal
1 ¾CupsQuick Oats
⅔CupMilk of choice
Cinnamon Cardamom Cream
Preheat the oven to 375°F with a rack in the center. Grease an 8x8 baking pan and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, baking soda, and salt until thoroughly combined.
In a small mixing bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the milk, egg, maple syrup, and vanilla extract, until the egg is fully beaten and the mixture is smooth.
Pour the wet ingredients into the oats and stir until combined and not liquidy. Fold in the blueberries.
Transfer the oatmeal to the prepared pan, and use a flexible spatula to spread it into an even layer. Redistribute blueberries as needed, then sprinkle the top with sparkling sugar.
Bake for 25 minutes until the oatmeal appears dry and slightly golden, and the edges are just starting to brown. Place the pan on a trivet to cool for 2-3 minutes before cutting.
Meanwhile, use a whisk or hand mixer to fluff up the cream until it's increased in volume about 50%. Then add in the spices and continue mixing until slightly thickened. See note.
Serve slices of the baked oatmeal topped with a dollop of the cream.
Make ahead tips:
Baked oatmeal without cream can be covered with plastic wrap once cooled and then stored in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat individual portions in the microwave or toaster oven.
Spiced cream can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week, as long as that's before the expiration date of the heavy cream.
Whipping cream: The cream does not need to be fully whipped until stiff peaks form, but it's okay if you do over whip it slightly. Once whipped cream tops the hot oatmeal, it will begin to melt into it anyway, which is what you want here.
