We made these souffles a number of times but never tried taking photos of them. This time, that we decided to share this simple Strawberry Souffle recipe on the blog, we had a challenge on our hands! How do we take enough photos to show off the height of the souffles before they start deflating?! Well, it was a frantic, but fun experience, to say the least! We had it all ready, I was running around with an oven glove on one hand and a camera in the other, trying to beat the gravity slowly deflating those souffles!

When you’re cooking for yourself or your guests it is certainly a lot less chaotic. Strawberry souffles are really rather simple to make and they can go straight from the oven onto the table for everyone to dig in. What is more, you can prepare the ramekins and fruit base in advance, so all it takes on the night is to whisk up some egg whites, mix and bake.

What a wonderful and light dessert for summer! If you are ready to try it, let’s cook!

How to Make Our Simple Strawberry Souffle?

Grease 3 ramekins (190ml) with soft butter. Sprinkle generously with caster sugar and roll it around to coat all the sides and the bottom. Tip out any excess. Place the prepared ramekins in the fridge to chill.

Place strawberries into a food processor and blend until you have a smooth puree. Add 10g of the sugar to the food processor and continue to blend for another 30 seconds.

Scrape the puree out into a small saucepan and put it on low heat.

Mix cornflour with a tbsp of water in a small bowl and mix to combine. Pour the cornflour mixture into the puree. Cook on low heat for 5-8 minutes until it thickens to a jammy consistency. Remove from heat. Weigh out 50g of the strawberry mixture into a large bowl and leave to cool down.

Preheat the oven to 200° C Fan. Whisk your egg whites, adding the remaining sugar (50g) gradually until you arrive at stiff peaks.

Gently fold the egg whites into the cooled fruit base in three instalments.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared ramekins up to the rim. Using a dough scraper or a wide-bladed knife, skim the top to create a flat surface. Then clean the rim of the ramekin. Place the souffles on a baking tray and into the oven for 7-8 minutes.

Serve immediately with some pouring cream or creme Anglaise!
