Pecan & Berry Baked Oatmeal with Cranberry-Apple Compote

Serving Size  : 9     
  1 ¾ cups  whole milk
  2        eggs
  ½       cup  maple syrup
  ¼       cup  unsalted butter -- melted
  ¼       cup  unsweetened applesauce -- or mashed bananas
  3        cups  old-fashioned rolled oats
  1        teaspoon  baking powder
  1        teaspoon  cinnamon
  1        teaspoon  vanilla
            pinch  salt
  1 ½    cups  berries -- frozen or fresh, do not thaw
  ½       cup  chopped pecans -- or walnuts, optional
  12      ounces  cranberries -- fresh or frozen, do not thaw
  1        cup  sugar
  1        cup  apple cider -- can use hard cider, if desired
  2        cinnamon sticks
  12      whole cloves
  1        lemon -- zest and juice
  1        orange -- zest and juice
  2        Granny Smith apples -- peeled, cored and chopped

Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat to 350. Spray a 9 x 9 or 11 x 7 glass baking pan with nonstick spray.

Stir everything except nuts together in a large bowl. Pour into prepared pan and top with nuts (or they can be stirred in). 

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the center is almost set which will yield a softer oatmeal. For a drier, firmer oatmeal bake until center is completely set; about 10 minutes more.

Meanwhile make the compote in a medium saucepan; combine cranberries, sugar, cider, zests, and juices. Bring to a gentle boil, then reduce to simmer and cook for 5 minutes.

Add apples and cook 5 to 10 minutes more, or until the apples are tender but not falling apart. Allow sauce to cool and serve chilled.

Serve the oatmeal topped the compote.
