- 2 tbsp almond powder
- 1 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen
- 1/2 cup maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich flavour)
- Zest and juice of one orange
- 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 whole egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/4 cup maple sugar (or more for garnish)
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 3 egg whites
- Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F).
- Lightly butter four (125 ml – 1/2 cup) ramekins and dust with almond powder. Reserve.
- 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.
- In a large bowl, mix the egg and egg yolk. Add the warm cranberry purée and set aside.
- In another bowl, blend the maple sugar, cornstarch, and cream of tartar. Set aside.
- 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.
- Using a spatula, stir about a quarter of the meringue into the cranberry purée. Gently fold in the rest of the meringue.
- 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.
- Sprinkle with maple sugar, if desired, and serve immediately
