- 2 1/4 cups Large Flake Quaker® Oats or Quick Quaker® Oats (uncooked)
- 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- 3/4 cup dried cherries

How to make it
- Heat oven to 350ºF. Spray 8 (6 oz.) custard cups or ramekins with non-stick cooking spray; arrange on rimmed baking sheet.
- In large bowl, combine oats, brown sugar and salt; mix well. In medium bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, butter, vanilla and almond extract.
- Add to dry ingredients; mix until well blended. Spoon into cups. Stir cherries into each cup, dividing evenly; sprinkle evenly with almonds.
- Bake until knife inserted near centre comes out clean, about 23 to 26 minutes for Quick Oats, 25 to 30 minutes for Large Flake. (Centres will not be completely set.) Cool 10 minutes.
