Strawberry soufflé

30 July 2018

These light summery little desserts are sure to impress friends and family.

Cooking time

12-15 minutes

Serves

4



Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 4 large free-range egg whites
  • 125 g (4 oz) caster sugar
  • 4 tbsp Bonne Maman Strawberry Conserve
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar, to dust

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 200°c (fan oven 180°c), gas mark 6. Lightly grease 4 individual deep ramekin dishes with the butter. Put the dishes into a medium roasting tin.

2. Whisk the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until stiff, then whisk in the sugar, a spoonful at a time, until it is thick and glossy. Fold in the conserve, then spoon the soufflé mixture into the prepared ramekin dishes.

3. Bake on a centre shelf in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes.

4. Lightly dust with the icing sugar and serve immediately.

Cooking tip

For an equally gorgeous soufflé, try Bonne Maman Berries and Cherries, Blackcurrant or Raspberry Conserve.

Put a small scoop of solid ice cream in the base of each ramekin before adding the meringue for a Baked Alaska-type pudding.
