Individual Blackberry Souffles

"A rich, yet still light dessert to make Valentine's Day dinner, or any meal extra special. It is important that eggs are at room temperature for an hour or 2 so that they beat up to a higher volume. This can be made in any size ramekin or even a microwave coffee mug, the important thing is that the vessel is filled 3/4 full. Don't worry if the souffle falls, it is still delicious, just a little denser."

Ready In:
6 individual souffles




  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter 6 8 ounce ramekins or a 2 quart souffle dish, then sprinkle with about 1/4 cup sugar.
  • Place blackberries in a food processor or blender and pulse until pureed. Squeeze through a sieve or strainer to extract juice, discard solids. Add enough water so that you have 2 cups liquid. Add 1/2 cup sugar to juice and heat in a medium saucepan over medium high heat until boiling; remove from heat.
  • Melt butter in another large saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and whisk thoroughly. Slowly pour hot juice mixture into flour mixture while whisking vigorously. Cook 1 minute, remove from heat. Whisk in egg yolks, then Chambord.
  • In a clean, dry bowl, beat egg whites with a mixer until frothy. Gradually add remaining 1/2 cup sugar until soft peaks are fomed. Stir 1 cup of the egg whites into blackberry mixture. Fold remaining egg whites into blackberry mixture.
  • Spoon into ramekins or souffle dish making sure to fill only 3/4 full. Bake 20 to 25 minutes for ramekins or 30 to 40 minutes for large souffle. Carefully remove from oven once it has risen. Serve immediately.
