1 cup sugar (white or brown)
1/1/2 cup quick oats
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (more if you use a layer of apples)
Chopped apples, pears, dried cranberries, nuts, or other fruit (optional)
Cream oil, sugar and egg together in a small bowl
Add all other ingredients and mix

*At the inn we do double and triple batches of this always putting in a layer of fruit. My all time favorite is left over lemon brandied apples. Another good one is strawberries with some steamed/sugared rhubarb. Put half the batter into your greased baking dish, layer the fruit on top and then put the rest of the batter on top and bake. If you are using frozen fruit you will want to steam it for a bit in the microwave first.
