Blueberries and Cream Souffles

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Chef Jean

These reduced sugar individual desserts are a cross between a souffle and a cake because they have the lightness of a souffle with a little more stability. Save the extra cake mix to make these over and over, or to try some other flavors.

Made for Hidden Gems 12/08. I like the flavor of the recipe. I love blueberries and I love eggs so this already started out as a winner for me. I had trouble with the actual souffle so made it twice. The frist one just "layed" not "souffed". My 2nd one souffled but fell. :-( Either way we did enjoy it as the taste overcame the falling souffle. I reminded myself of Lucille Ball and her comedic TV cooking. I will keep practicing. I did use regular sugar as opposed to Splenda and wonder if that could have made a difference. My blueberries were frozen (from orchard picking) but thawed to room temp before starting out. I have 2 more gallons frozen and plan to try this one again. Thank you.
