Creme Brulee Oatmeal with Fresh Fruit


I hope that you had a restful week-end. I certainly have and this morning will be even tougher to go back to work. But I should not complain, summer is very near;-)

This week-end I had time to spend a little of time in my kitchen and since I had seen a recipe of Creme Brulee Oatmeal, I thought to give it a try, or several tries;-)photo

Ingredients for 4 individual ramekins:

  • 1 cup of regular oatmeal
  • 2 cup of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp of vanilla
  • 2 tbsp of maple, or brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar to sprinkle
  • fresh fruit

In the recipes posted on the internet, they cooked the oatmeal in the oven for a good 25 minutes. In my recipe, you can shorten this recipe considerably if you are cooking the oatmeal first in the microwave.

  1. Place all the ingredients above and mix well.
  2. Cook the oatmeal mixture in the microwave for 3 minutes using the large round mold and the octogonal 1
  3. Fill each individual bowls. I used Pot de creme of about 1 cup each, and individual tartlet 3
  4. Place the bowls onto a perforated sheet and cook them for 10 minutes in the oven at 400. IF YOU HAVE NOT PRE-COOKED THE OATMEAL IN THE MICROWAVE, YOU WILL NEED TO COOK THE OATMEAL IN THE OVEN FOR 20
  5. Sprinkle some sugar over each individual cups and broil, or cook at 475 for 2-3 minutes to caramelize the 4
  6. Serve warm with fresh fruits. Yummy;-)photo

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
