READY IN: 50mins




  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spray four 5-oz souffle molds, custard cups or ovenproof bowls with nonstick cooking spray; place in 15x10x1 inch baking pan.
  • In a small saucepan bring the milk and butter just to a boil.
  • Gradually add oats while stirring constantly.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until oats thickened, stirring often.
  • Remove from heat; pour the oat mixture into a large bowl.
  • Add sugar, salt, cinnamon, sour cream and 1 egg yolk; stir until smooth.
  • Add dried fruit and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl beat all 3 egg whites until stiff but not dry.
  • Gently fold egg whites into oat mixture using a rubber scraper.
  • Do not overmix; small lumps of egg white will remain.
  • Gently spoon the mixture into molds.
  • Sprinkle the tops with brown sugar.
  • Place in preheated oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until souffles are puffy and a knife inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs.
  • Serve immediately.
