Expert Tips

Replace pumpkin puree with sweet potato puree for sweet potato soufflés.

Soufflés have the stigma of being a difficult dessert to prepare. They are known to fail if the temperature is not correct, or if the mixture is not whipped to the right consistency. I’ve wanting to prepare one for a while now and this year, I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try. I love the flavors of autumn and I found it appropriate to dedicate an afternoon to my kitchen concentrating on baking a perfect soufflé. The result: success!

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 400 °F.
  • 2 Butter 6 – 8 ounce ramekins then cover buttered area with sugar. Set them aside on a baking sheet.
  • 3 In a blender, place milk, pumpkin pie spice, egg yolks, flour, salt and pumpkin. Blend until smooth and pour into a large bowl.
  • 4 Clean blender thoroughly and add egg whites, sugar and corn starch. Blend on low speed until the mixture becomes frothy.
  • 5 Pour frothy mixture into the other mixture and carefully fold in with spatula.
  • 6 Pour mixture into ramekins and bake for 30 minutes.
  • 7 Remove from oven, dust with powdered sugar and serve.
