Dr. Samuel Johnstone apparently once, rather nastily, claimed that, "In England we feed oats to horses. In Scotland they sustain people."
Well, Dr. Johnstone, I am neither English nor Scottish but I do use a lot of oats. As a consequence, here is a recipe I found on the back of a Swedish oatmeal packet from whence yesterday' breakfast came. I tried it yesterday afternoon. It is easy, tastes great and can easily be made in a yacht's galley:
75 g butter or margarine
½ dl desiccated sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 dl rolled oats
Pre-heat your oven to 225 C. Peel and cut the apples into wedges not forgetting to remove the cores. Place them in a greased oven-proof dish.
Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl. Using your finger tops, work the butter or margarine well into the mixture. Spread this mixture over the apples and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Serve with ice cream, custard or whipped cream.
Simple as that!
As an alternative, according to the recipe on the packet of roled oats, replace the apples with pears and the cinnamon with ½ tsp. ginger
