Morning Glory Baked Oatmeal with Pineapple Frosting

Morning Glory Baked Oatmeal with Pineapple Frosting. Similar to the traditional treat, this baked cake muesli is seasoned with different ingredients. I eat it for breakfast, but it’s like dessert…very similar to carrot cake. Although I adore all of the flavours of cakes, I think one of my all-time favourite is the “morning glory” flavour. Let me briefly introduce you to morning glory baked oatmeal in case you aren’t familiar with them. This cake batter usually contains an enormous amount of flavourful ingredients. If my fondness for morning glory cake isn’t enough to convince you that it baked good to be flavourful and texture-rich, then nothing will.
