DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium-sized bowl, mash 1 large, ripe banana with a fork. Add 1 & 1/2 teaspoons fresh-squeezed lime (or lemon) juice and 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract. Blend thoroughly and set aside.
  • In a chilled bowl, whip 2 chilled egg whites to a soft peak stage.
  • Gradually add 1 & 1/2 tablespoons confectioner’s sugar to soft peaked egg whites. Continue whipping egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form.
  • Working in thirds, gradually (and gently) fold the stiffly beaten egg whites into the mashed banana until combined.
  • Spoon souffle mixture into 2 or 3 individual ramekins prepared with non-stick cooking spray; divide evenly.
  • Set filled ramekins on a cookie sheet (or jelly roll pan) and place in lower third of a preheated 450 degree F oven with upper rack removed.
  • Turn on the oven’s interior light and keep a close eye on your souffles. Resist the temptation to open the door during baking (to do so would risk the souffles falling prematurely). Bake for approximately 10-15 minutes.
  • When souffles are done, remove from oven and dust with confectioner’s sugar. Using a non-slip hot pad or thick, textured kitchen towel, remove ramekins to individual plates and serve immediately.
