Hubby and I are trying to eat healthily at the moment and I grabbed a copy of 100 Great Low-Fat Recipes by Rosemary Conley from the library. We’ve tried a few recipes from this book, and they’ve been very successful. Last night Mr Munro made a raspberry soufflé. It was quick and easy and best of all, it tasted great!
225 grams (8 oz) frozen berries e.g. blackberries, raspberries
25 grams (1 oz) caster sugar
3 egg whites
150 grams (5 oz) caster sugar
fresh fruit to decorate
1. Cook the berries and 25 grams of caster sugar in a small saucepan. Gently simmer for 10 – 15 minutes until the fruit reduces to a thick paste. Pour into a mixing bowl and cool.
2. Preheat your oven to 200C (400F)
3. In a clean bowl whisk the egg whites along with a pinch of your caster sugar. When the egg whites start to peak, gradually add the rest of the sugar 1 dessertspoon at a time. Allow about 10 seconds between each addition of sugar. Continue until you’ve added all the sugar.
4. Place a dessertspoon of fruit mixture into four greased ramekins. Gently fold the egg whites into the remaining fruit mixture. Smooth the top.
5. Place in the oven and bake for 5 – 6 minutes.
6. Serve the soufflés straight away since they’ll collapse once they come out of the oven.
1. While I really liked these I found them a little sweet. When we make them again we’ll fiddle with the amount of sugar.
2. Our ramekins were a little big. The mixture should rise a little above the top of the ramekin.
3. We used only raspberries, but I think they’d be nice with a mixture of berries.
4. We cooked ours for six minutes in a fan-bake oven and felt this was perfect.
5. Each soufflé is 187 calories and this recipe serves four.
Have you made a soufflé before?
It was light and fluffy and delicious. I’m a sucker for anything with raspberries in it.
Oh, does that look good. :) Thanks for sharing.
I hope you get a chance to make this. It’s delicious!
Yum! Looks delicious.
What I liked was that it was so easy to make.
I’ve never made a soufflé before but I did buy 4 ramekins so I could made custard. This sounds really good.
Ramekins are good for creme brulee too. That’s yummy!
What do you mean……I liked that it was easy to make. Don’t forget “I” made it!!! You just ate it.
LOL This is true :)
It was very delicious too.
Have never tried to make a souffle before, but these do look good.
I was surprised by how easy it was. We got home from our walk and about 10 minutes later we were eating dessert.
