- Stir oats in heavy skillet over medium heat 3 minutes or until slightly browned. Place in medium bowl; cool 10 minutes. Stir in flour, baking powder and remaining sugar. Combine milk and yogurt in small bowl; stir into flour mixture just until all ingredients are moistened. (Batter will be lumpy.)
- Coat nonstick griddle or heavy skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat until water droplets sprinkled on griddle bounce off surface. Drop batter by scant 1/4 cupfuls onto griddle; spread batter to form 4-inch round cakes. Cook 2 minutes or until top is covered with bubbles. Turn cakes; cook 2 minutes longer or until browned. Serve warm with raspberry topping.
Hulled, sliced strawberries or blueberries can be substituted for the raspberries. Mash half the berries and leave the rest whole.
