4 portions
Metric Imperial

Ingredients

  • 30 ml almond powder
  • 250 ml cranberries, fresh or frozen
  • 125 ml maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich flavour)
  • Zest and juice of one orange
  • 30 ml all-purpose flour
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 60 ml maple sugar (or more for garnish)
  • 15 ml cornstarch
  • 1 ml cream of tartar
  • 3 egg whites

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F).
  2. Lightly butter four (125 ml – 1/2 cup) ramekins and dust with almond powder. Reserve.
  3. In a saucepan over high heat, cook the cranberries in the maple syrup and orange zest and juice for 5 minutes. In a blender, purée until smooth, and return to the pan. Bring to a boil, add the flour, and whisk well until thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool a bit.
  4. In a large bowl, mix the egg and egg yolk. Add the warm cranberry purée and set aside.
  5. In another bowl, blend the maple sugar, cornstarch, and cream of tartar. Set aside.
  6. In a third bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the egg whites until soft peaks are formed. Gradually add the maple sugar mixture, whisking to a firm-peaked meringue.
  7. Using a spatula, stir about a quarter of the meringue into the cranberry purée. Gently fold in the rest of the meringue.
  8. Divide the mixture into the ramekins (filling up to 1.25 cm / 1/2 in. of the tops) and level the surfaces. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the soufflés are golden and puffy.
  9. Sprinkle with maple sugar, if desired, and serve immediately

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
