1. Preheat oven to 375'F. 2. Generously grease a 2-quart souffle mold.
Sprinkle bottom and sides with sugar; shake out excess. 3. Combine the flour, sugar, and egg yolks in the top of a double boiler and beat with a whisk over simmering water until well blended and sugar has dissolved. Add butter and stir until blended. Slowly add the heated milk, beating as added. Beat in the liqueur. Continue to cook, stirring over hot water, until mixture is thick and smooth. Remove from heat and fold in the candied fruit. 4. Beat egg whites until stiff. Mix about one quarter of the beaten whites into the souffle mixture with a wire whisk. Fold the mixture into the remaining egg whites. 5. Pour into prepared mold. Bake in preheated oven 30-35 minutes, or until souffle is well puffed and firm. 6. Serve immediately. If desired, serve with sweetened whipped cream.
