Author: Canadian Living

This elegant ending can wait comfortably in the freezer. Serve on chilled plates so the souffles don't melt too quickly. (From "Dinner to Remember" in the January 2006 issue)

Ingredients

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier)
  • 1/3 cup pasteurized egg whites
  • 3/4 cups whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup Candied Kumquats Recipe seeded and coarsely chopped
Garnish:
  • 2 oz bittersweet chocolate finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 cup Candied Kumquats Recipe (with syrup)

Method

Line bottom of four 1-cup (250 mL) ramekins with parchment paper rounds. Cut four 13- x 5-inch (33 x 12 cm) strips of parchment paper; fold in half lengthwise and line inside of ramekins. Set aside.

In large heatproof bowl, whisk together egg yolks, 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the sugar and orange liqueur. Place over saucepan of simmering water; whisk until pale yellow and batter falls in ribbons when whisk is lifted, about 4 minutes. Let cool.

In bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form; beat in remaining sugar, 1 tbsp (15 mL) at a time, until stiff peaks form.

In another bowl, whip cream. Fold one-third into egg yolk mixture; fold in remaining cream. Fold in one-third of the egg whites; fold in remaining egg whites. Fold in chopped kumquats. Spoon about 3/4 cup (175 mL) into each ramekin; smooth tops. Cover and freeze until firm, about 8 hours. (Make-ahead: Freeze for up to 2 days.)

Garnish: Place chocolate in heatproof bowl. In small saucepan, heat cream until bubbles form around edge; stir into chocolate until smooth.

Run knife around each ramekin to loosen paper; pull souffles from dish. Remove paper base. Set souffles on chilled plate; remove paper collar. Drizzle with chocolate; garnish with kumquats.
