Lime Soufflé

I was so very excited when I saw that the theme for this month’s Flavor of the Month was lemon, lime or a combination of both. I just LOVE lime, so I wanted to make something good. A couple weekends ago, I got my inspiration. I was making hubby a chocolate soufflé when I thought, why not make a lime one? We didn’t really like how the chocolate one turned out though, so I went hunting for a different recipe. The one I ended up going with is based on this one from Paula Deen – and it was absolutely delicious, y’all!

First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a casserole dish by rubbing the inside with softened butter. Sprinkle with the granulated sugar and then shake to coat the inside of the dish. Pour out the excess sugar. Combine the melted butter, 1/3 cup sugar, flour, and cornstarch in a small saucepan.

Slowly whisk the warm milk into the mixture, and then bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens.

Slowly whisk the milk mixture into the lightly beaten egg yolks a little at a time to temper them. Stir in the lime zest, juice, and limeade.

Beat the 6 egg whites in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Add in the 2 Tbsp sugar and a pinch of salt, and then beat a few minutes more.

Fold the whipped egg whites into the cooled egg mixture.

Pour the batter the casserole dish (or 6 ramekins, if you want individual soufflés). Bake until puffed and lightly browned, 35-40 minutes.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and slices of lime, if desired. Serve immediately.

  3. I thought about doing a lemon souffle, but I needed something that I felt certain my family and the friends we were serving would enjoy… thus, cheesecake won out. But your souffle looks incredible. What a beautifully browned top. I’m impressed.
