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? :)
