Orange Souffles with Orange Sauce
These are amazing.
No kidding, my keyboard and mouse are sticky because of my zest (ha!) to share this with you.
Seriously. Mark this one down. You have got to make these someday.
Recipe from a long ago-clipped magazine article -- if I had to guess, I'd say Bon Appetit.
NOCKERLN (Individual Souffles with Orange Sauce)(makes 2)
1 T. butter
3 T. sugar
1 t. cornstarch
1/4 c. fresh orange juice
1 T. grated orange peel
1 t. fresh lemon juice
2 eggs, separated
pinch of cream of tartar
pinch of salt
3 T. sugar
1 T. flour
1 t. grated orange peel
powdered sugar (to garnish)
Make sauce: In small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. In small bowl, mix together sugar and cornstarch. Stir sugar/cornstarch mixture into butter. Slowly whisk in orange juice and lemon juice and orange peel, and cook, stirring, over medium-ish heat until thickened, about five minutes. Divide sauce evenly into two 4 x 6-inch oven-proof gratin dishes.
Make soufflés: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Separate eggs, putting whites in medium bowl and yolks in small bowl. Get our your electric mixer and beat whites until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and salt and beat a bit more, until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and keep beating until "stiff and glossy." Set aside. Stir yolks with a fork "until lemon colored" (I just did this for 30 seconds or so). Stir in the flour and peel until mixed (should be thick). Gently fold the yolk mixture into the whites (use a spatula or large spoon; you don't want to beat this down, you are just trying to mix and add a little air in there with big swooping motions). Spoon in mounds over sauce and bake until golden, about 14 minutes. Sift powdered sugar over the top.
These are AMAZING. Please do try them. You will not be sorry.
