Baked Oatmeal with Craisins

Original Recipe HERE
This meal does not need to include craisins, but since I have several baked oatmeal recipes in rotation, so shall it be dubbed.
The only thing I would change for next time, besides the slight adjustments I already made, is to cut down the brown sugar.  It was too sweet to be served for breakfast or brinner; it actually would've been good along with some yogurt, whipped cream, or even vanilla ice cream.  The amount listed below is the (assumed) proper amount.  Cinnamon, nutmeg, etc., would surely work in the dish, too.
Also, I realized after the fact that I used baking soda instead of baking powder.  It turned out fine.
2 cups uncooked oats [I used old-fashioned]
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 to 1 cup craisins [or dried fruit of choice]
1 Tablespoon chopped nuts [optional]
1 teaspoon baking powder
1-½ cups milk [I used skim]
½ cup applesauce
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 large egg, beaten
(1) Preheat oven to 375° Fahrenheit.  Grease a 2-quart casserole dish or 8x8" baking dish.
(2) In large mixing bowl, combine oats, sugar, fruit, nuts, and baking powder.
(3) In separate bowl, whisk egg.  Add milk, applesauce, and butter.
(4) Add milk mixture to oat mixture; stir well.
(5) Pour batter into dish.  Bake 20-25 minutes or until center is set and edges are slightly browned. Serve warm.
