Apple omelette souffle dessert, peculiar but GOOD.

It was close to 10pm and we suddenly developed a crazy hankering for pudding. I really wasn’t in the mood to make anything too labour intensive or time consuming.

As I flipped through my favourite recipe book, “A Year of Desserts – 365 Delicious Set-by-step Recipes”, I came across this curious looking pudding called “apple omelette souffle”. Hmmmm…

# – Apple omelette souffle dessert.

All that were needed to make this dessert were 5 ingredients and I’d got all of them. You probably do too :)

For the omelette souffle:

  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons of whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon of caster sugar
  • 15 grams of butter

For the apple filling:

  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 25 grams of butter
  • 3 tablespoons of whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons of caster sugar

# – First of all, dump all the ingredients for the apple filling (except whipping cream) into a saucepan on medium heat.

# – Gently stir in the 3 tablespoons of whipping cream and let it simmer on low heat while you get on with other tasks. Remember to stir occasionally.

# – In the meantime, beat the egg whites until stiff.

# – By stiff, I mean when you turn the bowl upside down, the whites would not fall out :)

# – Next, beat the yolks, sugar and cream until properly combined.

# – Gently fold in the stiff egg whites into the yolk mixture. Stir gently to combine.

# – Then, pour the mixture into a heated non-stick pan that’s been greased with the 15 grams of butter. Keep the flame low. Leave it to cook for around 2 minutes.

# – Give the non-stick pan a gentle shake. When the omelette moves and no longer sticks to the pan, turn it out onto an oven-proof plate, with the uncooked side facing upwards.

# – Stick it under the grill for 3 1/2 minutes.

# – By now, the apples should be soft and a caramel-ish sauce should have developed.

# – Pour the apple filling over one half of the omelette souffle. Fold the other side of the omellete over to cover the filling.

# – Heat a metal skewer over the stove.

# – Brand the omelette. This is purely for aesthetics…and fun :)

# – Apple omelette souffle, DONE!

It’s the first time I’ve ever tasted such a dessert but I was pleasantly surprised. The fluffy sweet omellete souffle was a wonderful vehicle for the soft caramelised apples. And the sauce….it was to die for!

This dessert was easy to make, quick and absolutely satisfying. The boyfriend gave two thumbs up.

# – YUMMY!

I literally licked the plate clean. Guess which recipe’s going into my regular dessert list? :)
