Iced Strawberry Soufflé

Iced soufflé is a cool alternative to the hot one. In order to create the “puffed up” effect of hot soufflé, the soufflé dishes are wrapped with a stripe of parchment paper or plastic strip 1 to 2 inches above the rim with the mixture filled all the way to the top. The good thing for the iced soufflé is you can decorate the dessert before serve.

"Be careful not to freeze this souffle for too long, or it will lose it's soft consistancy. If you want to freeze the souffle for longer, substitute a half quantity of Italian meringue for the egg whites in the recipe and reduce the amount of sugar accordingly."

Ingredients

  • 750g Strawberries Puree
  • 1tbs Strawberry Flavour (Heat Stable)
  • 750ml Cream
  • 3 Egg Whites
  • 420g Sugar
