Strawberry Souffle Recipe
"Your Source for Strawberry Recipes Online"
5 egg whites
Butter or margarine
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1/4 to 1/3 cup sugar
4 tsp cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
Let egg whites stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Using
butter or margarine, grease six 1-cup souffle dishes or 10-ounce
custard cups. Sprinkle with sugar, shaking out any excess sugar.
Place dishes on a shallow baking pan or cookie sheet. Set aside.
Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine strawberries and the 1/4 to 1/3
cup sugar. Let stand 15 minutes until strawberries become juicy. In
a blender or food processor bowl, combine strawberry mixture and
cornstarch. Blend or process until smooth. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350° F. In a large mixing bowl, beat egg whites to
soft peaks. Gradually add the 1/2 cup sugar, beating for 2 to 3
minutes or until stiff, glossy peaks form. (Egg whites are
considered stiff when they form peaks that stand up straight and
don't tip over as you lift the beaters.)
With a rubber spatula, push beaten egg whites to the side of the
bowl. Pour strawberry mixture into the bottom of the bowl. Carefully
stir a little of the beaten egg whites into the strawberry mixture.
Then gently fold the two mixtures together (there should be a few
streaks remaining). Divide mixture evenly among prepared dishes.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center
comes out clean.
Serve immediately with strawberry or chocolate syrup.
Makes 6 individual souffles.
