Southern Eats: Warm Cranberry Casserole!


Cranberries are a wonderfully versatile food…tart and sweet, great in cold salads or dried as a snack. I had never eaten them hot until a few years ago when I got a fabulous church cookbook with this recipe in it. I haven’t made it yet this year, but I will. It’s one of those dishes that you can justify eating for breakfast because it has oatmeal in it. Just not too many days in a row if you want your pants to fit.

Hot Cranberry-Apple Casserole

  • 3 cups of peeled, cored and chopped apples
  • 2 cups whole, raw cranberries
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups quick cooking oatmeal
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans…or no nuts at all)
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 stick melted butter

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a two-quart casserole dish. Place in it the mixture of the chopped apples and whole cranberries. Sprinkle with the lemon juice and sugar. In a medium-size mixing bowl, blend to moisten the oatmeal, chopped walnuts, brown sugar and butter. Pour crumb mixture over fruit mixture. Bake uncovered for 75 minutes. Serves 10-12 (at my house 6-8).


Here is an extreme close-up of the ooey-gooey deliciousness! Trust me, if you make this, everybody will want the recipe!


  1. Looks delicious! Would be lovely to eat on a cold winters day! Loving your blog as usual!

  2. This does look so good and perfect for the holidays.

  3. This reminds me of a dump cake recipe but a LOT better! I can't wait to try this. I'm so glad I found your blog.

  4. This sounds so yummy. I don't do a lot of baking so I like to know in advance if it's going to be a crowd pleaser. But anything that's got the combo of brown sugar, butter, nuts & oatmeal and turns out ooey-goey has got to be good!

    Hey, just wanted to let you know that I'm doing a Vintage Christmas Giveaway right now - in case you'd like to stop by...

    Happy Holidays!
