This grapefruit souffle recipe is easy to whip up and is infused with sweet and citrusy grapefruit.
Hi guys!! Today’s recipe is a sweet and gooey one :). A grapefruit souffle for your fancy at home dinner parties or better yet for your sweet and citrusy cravings when you are binge watching a new TV show.
Wait, did I just spill my secret? I made this souffle recently with a friend and I ended up eating most of it on the couch binge watching The OA. Have you seen this show? It’s on Netflix and pretty addicting (like almost every series on Netflix). I am not usually a fan of strange pyschological shows or supernatural powers (I am more of a drama kind of girl) but this show was captivating and really a good one. If you are looking for a new different show, then give this show a try. Just set aside a day or two for it 🙂
Binge watching TV shows and eating fancy desserts is now my thing for those rare times I have a day to myself. This grapefruit souffle stems from my original experiment with souffle, this chocolate almond souffle. Since it is almost spring, I wanted something citrusy and light in flavor which is why I am loving this grapefruit souffle.
You guys, souffles sound fancy and difficult to make when in reality they are the easiest. Easier than making these chocolate cupcakes. All souffles (savory or sweet) start with an egg-yolk base that is versatile and easy to flavor with seasonal flavors. Once the base is cooked, usually on the stove top, you whip up stiff egg whites and fold into the base. This stiff egg whites is what gives you that famous pouffed top.
These grapefruit souffles are flavored with fresh grapefruit zest and juice in the egg yolk base. It bakes up into a sweet and citrusy delight that is perfect for this first day of Spring. A great way to say goodbye to winter and hello spring!
I hope you try your hand at souffles soon if you have not yet tried them. They are easy and worth the individual serving you get.
Happy first day of Spring friends!
NOTES: This souffle is best served immediately out of the oven.
