touché soufflé

I have been busting my brain this week to come up with some kind of blueberry thing for this weeks BSI (blogger secret ingredient) hosted by Reeni over at Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice. I made blueberry fruit leather that I made into some kind of cone and filled with ice cream but the leather was, well leathery and it was a nice cone but a difficult thing to eat. I made a blueberry balsamic vinegar that I served with pork chops but it was so incidental in the blueberry department I scarfed it down with out even photographing it. Then it hit me and it hit me like a fluffy brick.



Blueberry soufflé with blueberry sauce is what I came up with and if you have never worked with a soufflé before your window of opportunity is very slim. What do I mean? The soufflé starts to collapse within seconds of coming out of the oven so to set it up and photograph it is like playing a symphony all by yourself.



The blueberry soufflé came out great and the flavor was so sweet and light and blueberryesque it is definitely something I would make again.



Just in case there are any doubting thomas's out there I actually do have a photo of the chop and sauce and it was really good but the soufflé was better.

Very tricky shot - you captured it perfectly! It's like a soft, fluffy, blue cloud straight from heaven. I bet it just melts on the tongue. Thanks for entering! Your other creations sound pretty yummy. Especially that ice cream cone.

Nice. From the first pic, I've never seen blueberries in that shade of blue before. That's pretty neat.

I'd love to have some of that soufflé. very mouthwatering.

I rarely make souffles because they turn ugly so fast! It sounds and looks wonderful.

I love your photo of blueberries! And the souffle is just perfect, definitely a winner! Love the idea of blueberry balsamic vinegar too.

Jeanne said...

The souffle photo is very cool.

I have a recipe for this jelly roll kind of thing you fill with a lemon and blueberry filling, then roll up and cover with meringue. Also very cool, but a lot of work.

(And, as you know, I'm not so much into the cooking-as-work thing.)
