[Recipe] Lemon Soufflé


03-06-2014 11:45

There’s nothing like a refreshing dessert on a sunny day. Try this recipe for Lemon Soufflé, taken from a classic cookbook by Theodora FitzGibbon, now revised and photographed by Donal Skehan!

This is a very fresh, unfatty soufflé which can also be made with orange, lime and grapefruit instead of lemon.

Serves 4–6

4 large eggs, separated

175 g (6 oz) sugar
finely grated rind of 1 lemon
3–4 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 oz (15 g) powdered gelatine

Combine the egg yolks, sugar and finely grated lemon rind and juice, and mix very well with a wooden spoon. Dissolve the gelatine in 150 ml (1/4 pint) water in a saucepan, stirring over a low heat for a minute or two. Pour into the lemon mixture in a steady stream, stirring from time to time to blend well. Leave for about half an hour until it begins to set. Beat the egg whites stiffly. With a metal spoon, add the beaten egg whites, getting right down to the bottom of the mixture. Pour into serving dishes and chill to set.
