Passionfruit Souffle

A couple of years ago we were at a friend’s for dinner and he made us our first ever passionfruit souffle. We watched him whisked the ingredients together and then we all huddled together in front of the oven to watch this dessert magically rise. We were all very impressed to say the least. Dave since then decided that he would try to perfect a passionfruit souffle. It took him many years later to attempt his first passionfruit souffle. Only I have been privileged enough to have tried his passionfruit souffle. I think his passionfruit souffle is absolutely divine; it’s so light and fluffy.

So when Dave saw that I had a bag of passionfruit, he immediately wanted to make a passionfruit souffle. He uses this recipe from Lifestyle Food by Neil Perry and there is a great video on how to make the souffle. For such a dramatic dessert, it requires very few ingredients and very quick to make, but also easy to get wrong. We have to slightly reduce the amount of sugar as it was too sweet.

Passionfruit Souffle recipe adapted from Lifestyle Food.


2 egg yolks
20g + 20g Sugar
30 ml strained Passionfruit Juice
2 egg whites


In a bowl, cream the egg yolks with the first 20g sugar, until pale and the sugar has dissolved.

Add the passionfruit juice, mix and set aside.

In a separate clean bowl, whisk the egg whites with a tiny pinch of salt.

When you are ½ way to peaks forming, add ½ the remaining sugar, followed by the rest shortly after.

Whisk to firm peaks but be careful not to overbeat them.

Whisk some of the whites into the yolks then carefully fold through the remaining.

Spoon the mixture into a buttered and sugared ramekin.

Bake at 190C for 12 minutes.

    Yum, this looks very impressive! I’ve always loved souffles but am still daunted to make my own. Must rectify this soon!

    Thank Helen. I find souffle very daunting to make too. It took my husband 6 years before he attempted his first souffle.
