Servings: 16 Orange Souffles
  • 8 medium-size oranges
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest, grated
  • 6 large egg yolks, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons fresh mint leaves, minced
  • 2 1/4 cups heavy cream, whipped to firm peaks
  • 6 tablespoons Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liqueur
  • Cocoa powder (for garnish)
  1. Cut 1/3 of the top off each orange and scoop out all flesh, reserving the flesh and any juice.  

  2. Strain the flesh, firmly pressing down to extract as much juice as possible.

  3. In a saucepan, combine the orange juice, sugar, and lemon zest; reduce by 1/2 over high heat, stirring to help the sugar melt.  Remove from heat, set aside, and let cool.

  4. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks and cooled orange juice mixture together until light and thick.  Carefully fold in the mint, whipped cream, and Grand Marnier.

  5. Using a pastry bag or a spoon, pipe the mixture into the hollowed-out orange shells.  

  6. Freeze for at least 3 hours or until the mixture is firm.  

  7. Serve garnished with a dusting of cocoa power on top.

  8. TIP:  Serve on chilled plates so the souffles do not melt too quickly.

  9. Makes 16 Orange Souffles.
