Trying My Hands At Making Souffles ;)

Trying out new recipes can be quite challenging at times. I was surfing and looking around for some new things to bake for the weekend and I came across this beautiful Passionfruit Souffles from a food blog. I felt irresistibly drawn to it. Haha…knowing this crazy baking passion of mine and always wanting to try new things, this will definitely not escape me!!

But the smart me went and changed the ingredient from Passionfruit Puree to Mango Puree and named it Mango Souffles….this spelt disaster and the first try, all went to the dustbin ;0

The mango souffles were slightly burnt on top and the inside was either over baked or underbaked or the temperature was not right or the eggs were not big enough.

Haha….sounded lame right? Well, I gave it another try this afternoon, coz the inner soul is not happy with the result , this time it came out better than the first time. I did a half portion recipe … incase all have to be executed and buried under the pile of rubbish in the bin. Surprisingly all went into my stomach :) The texture was slightly better . I guess I have to do a few times more before it will come out nice.

The icing sugar topping looks like snow avalanche … ^_____+

Gently fold in the meringue to the egg yolk and mango puree mixture

Scoop into 4ozs ramekins to the rim

Bake at moderately hot for 15mins - 20 mins

Sprinkle icing sugar on the top of the souffles for decoration purposes
This need skill.....mine looks like snow avalanche ;)

¼ cup Fruit Puree + 4 egg yolks + Meringue(4 egg whites + 1/4 cup caster sugar = Souffles!

So easy......yet mine came out not satisfactory....need skill for this
** head shaking ** Guess, I have to practice more (",)
