Another great dessert recipe Kate! Light and tasty with the apples and custard. I will be making this for the upcoming holidays.

Oh this was nice! When I asked DH what he would like for dessert he said, “I don’t know, Apple Soufflé?” I looked it up on Zaar and came up with your recipe. Come to find out he didn’t know Apple Soufflé existed, but scarfed it down in no time! I used 3 Cox apples and 3 Granny Smith apples. It was very good but I think I went a bit overboard beating the egg whites or didn’t mix it in all the way. Nevermind, it turned out delicious! I dusted it with powered sugar and another sprinkling of cinnamon. I’ve got this one saved and will work on my technique. Thank you Kate and a special thank you for your quick replies and advice. :)

Very nice, light dessert. However, I only used 5 apples as I didn't have a pan large enough to hold any more. Also, recipe doesn't say when/where to add the salt. I served with a dollop of cool whip. This was much prettier when it first came out of the oven, it fell slightly as it cooled. Reviewed for Zaar Tag o5.
