Strawberry Soufflé with Sliced Strawberries

SERIOUSLY AMAZING. But don’t forget the sliced strawberries on top!

Hey! On the occasion of my father’s name’s day, I made the family a real treat. Hope you try it out.

Yield: Makes 4-6 servings

INGREDIENTS:

  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • 12-ounce basket of strawberries
  • 5 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 large egg whites

PREPARATION:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F). Spray 4-6 ramekins (4 “big” or 6 “small”) with vegetable oil spray.
  2. Coarsely puree 3/4 of the strawberries, 2 tbsp sugar and cornstarch in food processor. Transfer to small saucepan. Stir over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens, about 3 minutes. Cool completely.
  3. Slice remaining strawberries. Transfer to medium bowl, add vanilla-scented sugar if needed and some lime juice. Toss to blend.
  4. Beat egg whites in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add 3 tablespoons sugar; beat until stiff but not dry.
  5. Fold puree into whites in three additions.
  6. Transfer to ramekins. Bake until the soufflés are puffed and golden, about 13-15 minutes. Serve immediately with sliced strawberries.

PS: It was so yummy I didn’t have a chance to pull out a camera before it was all gone. So I took the liberty of using this picture, not far from the original: http://alldayidreamaboutfood.com/2012/05/strawberry-souffles-with-fresh-berries-guest-post-with-that-skinny-chick-can-bake.html. 🙂
