This recipe is yummy. I added all the oatmeal to the blender and skipped sprinkling at the end. I didn't have buttermilk, so I used a combination of milk/yogurt to try to mimic the consistency, and increased the amount slightly to make up for not having applesauce. Would give this 5 stars except that it's SO MUCH WORK. I make just about everything from scratch, but seriously, there are too many steps and you dirty too many dishes--not really worth it unless you're having a party.
