mango souffle

Warm mango lime souffle....

It is just delicious!


A few years ago,
a good friend of mine took a souffle class
and she shared her recipes with me.

And on those rare nights that our husbands went to the movies,
we let the kids run wild
and made souffle!

true decadence!



so here is the recipe:
1 cup ripe mango puree (food processor)
1/4 cup sugar
2T. cornstarch
3T. water
juice of 1 line
zest of 2 limes
1 cup mango cubes (about 1/2")
4 egg whites, at room temperature
3T. sugar

Preheat oven at 375 degree F, place oven rack in the lower half.
Prepare mold by buttering generously, then sprinkle with sugar.

Bring the mango puree and sugar to a light boil in a small saucepan.
Whisk the cornstarch and water together in a small bowl.
Add this mixture to the boiling puree.
Whisk until thick (about 1 min)
Remove from the heat and pour into a large bowl.
ass the lime juice, zest and mango cubes.
Set aside to cool.

Beat the egg whites, gradually adding the sugar,
until medium stiff peaks form.
Quickly fold the whites into the mango mixture
and scrape into the prepared mold.



Bake until risen and golden brown (about 40 min)
Remove from the oven and dust with sugar
and a little more lime zest.
Enjoy warm!




and when they say warm...they mean it!
Otherwise....
deflated souffle!!



It also happens if the egg whites get over beaten!

But it still tastes delicious,
just less impressive.

Happy day!

I copied and pasted the recipe just in case, but I never have success with making souffles. But it does inspire me...I'll keep you posted.
