Of all the different types of souffles that exist, this recipe is Neil's favourite.


  • 2 egg yolks

  • 25 g + 25g Sugar

  • 30 ml strained Passionfruit Juice

  • 2 egg whites

  • Salt


  • 1.

    In a bowl, cream the egg yolks with the first 25g sugar, until pale and the sugar has dissolved.

  • 2.

    Add the passionfruit juice, mix and set aside.

  • 3.

    In a separate clean bowl (copper, if you have), whisk the egg whites with a tiny pinch of salt.

  • 4.

    When you are ½ way to peaks forming, add ½ the remaining sugar, followed by the rest shortly after.

  • 5.

    Whisk to firm peaks but be careful not to overbeat them.

  • 6.

    Whisk 1/3 of the whites into the yolks then carefully fold through the remaining.

  • 7.

    Spoon the mixture into a buttered and sugared soufflé mould (this could also be a tea cup or ramekin).

  • 8.

    Bake at 190C for 12 minutes.

  • 9.

    Serve immediately with ice cream.

This is my first time, yes thats me souffle virgin. Doubled the ingredients to (supposedly) make 2 serves, which made 4 serves so hubby had to eat two desserts. He wasn't complaining. I agree I think the oven temp. is a little high, either that or I had it in a touch too long, but other than that they turned out great.

Tried this recipe tonight, I wish I had read the comments beforehand. The recipe makes far more than one, I was wanting five and got enough for fifteen. Mine were also too brown on top even on the bottom shelf. Nice flavour though.

Definitely takes the mystique and 'only for the professionals' out of souffle making, I changed the passion fruit for lemon and they were to die for
