Strawberry Soufflés with Fresh Strawberries are an elegant dessert plus the perfect treat when strawberries are in season!

If you want a dessert to impress company,  soufflés are definitely a top contender! As these bake  in the oven, the soufflés puff up above the edge of the baking dishes dazzling those peering in the oven. But it’s not long before they deflate, so be ready to dive in immediately.

A Healthier Dessert for the Mama to Be

Much as I could have gone with the most decadent dessert imaginable, I scaled back and created a most delectable, relatively healthy sweet treat: these ethereal strawberry soufflés. With a sweetened fruit puree and whipped egg whites as ingredients, you actually get some nutritional benefits from these babies! And the flavor is simply divine.

How Do You Make a Souffle?

Here are a few hints to make your  strawberry soufflés perfect:

  • Use a straight sided, oven safe dish. It doesn’t need to be a “soufflé” dish…just be mindful of the shape of your container. I used 8 ounce porcelain ramekins.
  • Butter the dish, then dust with sugar. This will help with a bigger rise.

 

  • PRO-Tip: Run your finger around the edge of the soufflé before baking This little trench in the batter will also help create a higher result.

 

  • Make sure your mixing bowl is free from any oil or grease. Your egg whites will not whip properly if exposed to oils.
  • Don’t overbeat your egg whites…you want stiff peaks, but they should not be dry.
  • Don’t over fold your puree into the egg whites as you will deflate your batter.
  • Supposedly, you can actually freeze unbaked soufflés for a month. Wrap them well, defrost for 30 minutes at room temperature, and double the baking time. I have not tried this method yet.
  • Since these babies deflate within minutes after coming out of the oven, you’ll want to bake just before serving. I’d make it an interactive dessert by having guests join you in the kitchen while you’re prepping. What fun to watch these poof up in the oven!
