Iced Raspberry Souffle

 

Iced Raspberry Souffle

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Still looking for the perfect dessert for your sweetheart for tonight? Well, this souffle is tres’ chic and definitely hits the spot (and its so  light as well). I first saw this recipe during my ‘Take Home Chef’ phase…I’d watch every episode of that show on TLC and hope to run into that chef in my local grocery store…yeah, okay, I don’t think he ever came out to the midwest, but a girl can dream. The premise of that show was basically, this  awesome chef would pick some random person in a grocery store and pay for all their groceries and then come home with them and teach them to cook a fantastic meal. Pretty amazing.

Well, on one show, he made this iced raspberry souffle as the dessert, and I knew I just had to make it. It’s been my go-to Valentine’s Day dessert for the last several years because my husband absolutely loves it, and it’s really quite simple to make. The only problem I have with it is that raspberries are sometimes hit or miss at the grocery store here this time of year.

Anyways, enjoy and have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Iced Raspberry  Souffle

Ingredients

6 ounces fresh raspberries
3/4 cup  sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream, semi-whipped
2 large egg whites
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
4 fresh raspberries, for garnish
Additional powdered sugar, for garnish

Directions

Cut four 14×3-inch/35×8-cm pieces of parchment paper. Wrap 1 paper strip around each of four 3/4-cup/175-ml soufflé dishes, forming collars that extend 1 inch/2.5 cm above the rims. Tape the ends to secure. Blitz the 6 ounces/170 g of raspberries and sugar in a blender until a puree forms.
Strain the puree through a fine-meshed sieve and into a large bowl, discarding the seeds in the strainer. Using a large rubber spatula, gently fold the semi-whipped cream into the raspberry puree.
In a separate large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the egg whites and 2 tablespoons/20 g of powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the raspberry-cream mixture.
Pour the mixture into the soufflé dishes, dividing equally. Freeze for 3 hours or just until the raspberry mixture is frozen. Gently remove the parchment paper from the soufflés. Top each with a raspberry. Dust lightly with powdered sugar and serve!
