I was so excited this weekend because I found a yummy recipe for Bruleed Oatmeal with Ginger Cream that looked fabulous. I bought all the ingredients and made it and it just wasn't something we cared for. I took the parts of it that I did like and created this.
Oatmeal Brulee with Cinnamon Cream
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 Tbsp. male syrup
a couple of shakes of cinnamon
4 cups water
2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/8 -1/4 cup sugar
fruit if desired (about 1 - 1 1/2 cups)
Butter flavored Pam
In a small saucepan, ring the cream and cinnamon to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in the syrup and cinnamon. Set aside
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan over medium heat bring water to a boil. Add the oatmeal and salt; cook and stir for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in brown sugar, 1/4 cup of the cinnamon cream and nutmeg. cover and let stand for 2 minutes.
Grease 4 10 inch or 6 mini ramekins with the cooking spray. Add fruit if desired (raspberries, bananas, etc.) Spoon oatmeal over the top; sprinkle with sugar. Place on baking sheet. Broil 4-6 inches from the heat for 7-9 minutes or until sugar is caramelized. Serve with remaining cinnamon cream. Serves 6
