Fresh sweet wine-red summer cherries might be my favorite snacking fruit, which can make pitting enough of them to get past my mouth and into a recipe an uncertain exercise — always better to have far too many on hand, at least in my house. But when they do survive long enough to be put into something like this oatmeal pudding, the results are extraordinary — baking cherries elevates their sweet taste and, combined with the essence of almonds, fills your kitchen with heavenly aromas.
This recipe is a remix of a baked apple-blueberry oatmeal breakfast pudding that scored a huge hit with me and my husband a little while ago, and if anything this proved to be an even greater success. The process of soaking oats overnight in yogurt not only breaks down the grain's complex proteins into easily digestible components, in addition the results bake into a soft and creamy spongey pudding that can be eaten as a dessert or for breakfast.
