Passion fruit souffle (Souffle de maracuyá)










Also known as grenadilla, passion fruit is a tropical fruit with intensely flavoured slightly sour, yellow juicy pulp.


I have to confess that I absolutely love passion fruit (aka maracuya) and in fact you can make desserts, tarts, ice cream, I had not made a soufle but the recipe enchanted me.
 Absolutely recommend.
I always use frozen maracuya if you do not have fresh maracuya. It freezes very well.

Ingredients


knob of butter, plus extra for greasing
100 grams caster sugar, plus extra for dusting
4 medium egg ehites
300 grs frozen passion fruit 
159 ml ready made custard

Heat  oven to 180° c .
Put a baking tray on the top  shelf to heat up.Grease 5 or 6 ramekins with butter and dust the insides with caster sugar to coat.

Whisk the egg white with a pinch of salt in bowl until stiff.
 Add 2 tablespoon of the sugar and whisk for 30 seconds more until thick and glossy. In a separate bowl, scoop 200 grams from frozen passion into the custard, then fold in the whisked egg white. Spoon the misture into the prepared ramekins and put on the baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes or until risen and golden on top.

While the souffles are cooking, make the sauce, scoop the remaining passion fruit pulp into  a saucepan, add the remaining sugar and simmer gently for 5 minutes. Finally add a knob of butter and stir until melted.
Put in a jug and serve with the hot souffles as soon as they come out of the oven.
 Let your guests break a hole in the centre of tyhe souffle the pour in the sauce.
