1 cup brown sugar
½ cup melted butter or margarine
7 cups stale bread-cubed
2 cups milk
1 Tbsp vanilla
Optional: Blueberries, apples, pears-other soft fruit
Put brown sugar in 9 X 13 pan. Pour melted butter on top and stir to mix. Spread evenly on the bottom of the pan. Layer bread cubes on top. Sprinkle with optional ingredients if desired. Mix eggs, milk and vanilla together. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. Sprinkle powdered sugar over the top if you want to be fancy!
7 cups oatmeal (instant holds together better, regular is more crumbly, but still yummy)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 ½ tsp salt
1 ½ cups brown sugar
1 cup oil (half applesauce does work in this recipe if desired-I don’t use it at camp, but I do sometimes when I make it at home)
2 ½ cups milk
Mix first three ingredients in large bowl. Combine next three in separate bowl. Alternately add the liquid mixture and milk to the oatmeal. Mix to combine. Add blueberries, diced cooked apples, nuts or chocolate chips if desired.
Pour into greased 9 X 13 pan. Bake 45 minutes until light brown. Cut into squares for cake or in a bowl with milk.
