Mango Soufflé

 

 

Serves 6 

Prep time: 30 minutes Cook time: 8 minutes  

Special equipment: 6 x 200ml ramekins, blender, electric beaters or mixer, large piping bag 

 

Ingredients  

  • 50g butter, melted  
  • Caster sugar to coat ramekins 

Mango base  

  • 160g mango puree (approx. 3 mango cheeks/1.5 medium sized mangoes) 
  • 40g caster sugar  
  • 20g cornflour 

 

  • 200g egg whites (approx. 6 eggs) 
  • 80g caster sugar  

 

To serve  

  • 1 mango cheek, cut into small chunks 
  • 1 passionfruit  
  • 200g mascarpone cream  

 

Method  

  1. Brush 6 x 200ml ramekins with the melted butter and coat the edges with caster sugar. Place on a tray and keep in the fridge until needed.  
  2. Puree the flesh from 3 mango cheeks in a blender or food processor until completely smooth. Measure 160g of puree into a mixing bowl. 
  3. Add the cornflour and sugar to the mango puree and whisk until combined. Transfer the mix into a small saucepan and place over medium heat.  
  4. Bring to a boil and then turn it down to a simmer, continuing to whisk for 1-2 minutes until it has slightly thickened. Pass the mix through a sieve and into a large bowl. Cover and let it cool down to room temperature.  
  5. While the mango base is cooling, preheat the oven to 200℃. Beat the egg whites on high speed. When they become foamy, start gradually adding the sugar and turn the speed down to medium-high. Beat until firm peaks just form.  
  6. Add a small amount of egg mix to the mango puree and fold together with a spatula. Add the rest of the egg mix ⅓ at a time, carefully folding until fully combined. Transfer the mix to a large piping bag and make a cut approximately 2cm in diameter.  
  7. Pipe the soufflé mix into each ramekin, slightly overfilling them. With a palette knife or flat scraper, scrape across the top, wiping away any excess and creating a smooth surface.  
  8. Take a clean cloth or paper towel and wipe around the edges, using your finger to create a slight lip around the edge (this will help it to rise straight up).  
  9. Place the ramekins on an oven tray and bake for 8-9 minutes or until they have fully risen and have a slight wobble.  
  10. Mix the extra chopped mango and passionfruit pulp together in a small bowl while the soufflés are cooking. Serve the souffles hot or cold, topped with some mascarpone cream and fresh mango and passionfruit.
