Warm Passionfruit Souffle

A slice of heaven that melts in your mouth!

Discover the delightful taste of a homemade warm passionfruit soufflé!

This classic dessert is fairly bursting with tropical flavour- and it’s all the sweeter when made with fresh fruit from your own backyard. Enjoy the satisfaction of using your own passionfruit while creating a treat that’s both sweet and tangy. It’s a simple way to appreciate the fruits of your labour and enjoy a delicious dessert at the same time. For more ideas for using your passionfruit harvest, check out our article here.

Here’s How to Make It

Pulp the passionfruit, separate the eggs and squeeze the lemon juice. Preheat the oven. Don’t be afraid to use home-grown passionfruit that look imperfect. As I discovered, (above), the pulp inside is always bright, sweet and perfect.

Lightly grease the base and sides of each ramekin. Sprinkle with caster sugar then shake out the excess. Combine the egg yolks, passionfruit, lemon juice and half the icing sugar in a large bowl.

With electric beaters, beat the egg whites in a separate bowl until soft peaks form. Then gradually add the remaining icing sugar, beating well after each addition.

In batches, fold the egg white mixture into the passionfruit mixture. Make sure you are gently folding spoonfuls of the mixture from the outside to the inside- do not stir.

Spoon the mixture into each ramekin. Place the ramekins on a baking tray the oven for 25-30 minutes. When done, the souffles should be well-risen but slightly wobbly.
