Ingredients Nutrition

  • butter-flavored cooking spray
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 bananas, ripe (not over-ripe)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Spray four 1-cup ramekins with cooking spray (or brush with melted butter). Add 2 tablespoons of the sugar to 1 of the ramekins and rotate it to coat with sugar. Tap the excess sugar into another ramekin and repeat until all the ramekins are coated with sugar.
  2. In a food processor, puree bananas with lime juice, egg yolk and 2 tablespoons of sugar until smooth. Pour into a large bowl.
  3. In a stainless steel or glass bowl, beat egg whites with a pinch of salt until soft peaks form. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar and beat until firm and glossy.
  4. Using a rubber spatula, beat one-fourth of the beaten whites into the banana mixture, then gently fold in the remaining whites. Pour soufflé mixture into prepared ramekins and tap them lightly on a countertop.
  5. Set ramekins on a baking sheet and bake in the center of the oven for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown and risen.
  6. Serve at once.

Tasty souffle and it gets good lift. I had enough mix to fill one more ramekin so I had 5 mini souffles. Thanks for the recipe!!!
