Made this last night and yummy yummy nom nom. I split the mixture into two ramekins and as a little experiment I microwaved one for 5 minutes and did one in the oven for 40 minutes. I don’t think it’s worth having the oven on for 40 minutes just for this but always good to bung in if you have the oven on for something else. My verdict….I prefer the texture of the microwaved one. Seems more light and fluffy and cake like. Really love all of your recipes especially the ones where I can get some extra speedy food stuff added. Thank you so much. xx

Hi – I add a pinch of salt and double the amount of spices – but slightly less than double ginger. Also spray the dish with frylight before baking to make washing up easier. Great recipe – thank you!

What is mixed spice… os it the same as all spice??

Reply

    KateTuesday 23rd May 2017

    Hi Richie
    No, they are different. Mixed spice is a blend of sweet spices, and is used in cakes etc. Allspice is a dried and ground berry and is used for savoury dishes

if you were pouring this into cupcake moulds, what sort of timings should i go for to cook them?

    Hi Michelle
    I’d say about 25-30 minutes, maybe check them after 20

Ive just made this is the cake suppose to be really moist because mine is. Not sure i put enough oats in

Reply

    KateFriday 3rd March 2017

    Hi Sarah
    It shouldn’t be too moist. Maybe the eggs were on the large side. If you prefer a drier texture you could maybe add a little less yogurt.

Just wondering when you say to make a vegetarian version of the baked oats carrots… do you mean a vegan version. And if so do you mean use the Alpro natural yoghurt? Changing the yoghurt from muller light to plain natural yoghurt won’t make it veggie as it’s veggie already? Confused? ????

Reply

    KateSaturday 11th February 2017

    Hi Jane
    There is gelatine in Muller lights so they are not suitable for vegetarians.This means a vegetarian alternative is to use fat free natural yogurt instead

Is it possible to mix this up the night before and leave the mixture in the fridge so it can just be put in the oven in the morning?
Mostly because I’m both lazy and ueless in the mornings 😛

    Hi Catherine
    You can cook them the night before, then just reheat them to save time in the morning

Hi, how long no will the baked oats last once cooked and how should I best store it. Too much for one portion for me. Thanks

    They’ll last for a couple of days in the fridge 🙂

LeahFriday 8th July 2016

So can I substitute the Sukrin for sweetener please?

Reply

    KateFriday 8th July 2016

    Hi Leah,
    Yes you can, but, if you can get hold of some Sukrin I would definitely recommend giving it a go. There’s no strange after taste that you get with other sweeteners which makes it perfect for baking
