Apple soufflé

 It seems I’d been eating and eating during the past two months, too many delicious pies and sweets, so me and my husband decided to limit the amount of sugar and fat in our regime and keep more healthy diet for a month or so. Diet doesn’t mean the food should be tasteless and dull. Thou, plain meal like steamed fish with broccoli or buckwheat isn’t so bad, especially after a few days of eating it without adding too many salt, spices, butter, cheese or whatever makes it more yummy. 😀
 Another happy moment – desserts for healthy diet do exist! A good and tasty example is Apple Souffle. Apples are baked, then pureed and mixed with egg whites, after those easy steps you need to bake it and voila – tender, airy and delicious dessert is ready! 🙂
I adapted the recipe from old Russian book published in 1984. Apple Souffle

  2. Apple souffle?!?! WOW…this looks spectacular! The ingredients, the flavor, the beauty…it looks like delicious perfection! Thanks for sharing your recipe at the Fiesta Friday Anniversary…it’s the perfect celebratory dessert. 🙂

    • Thank you for your lovely comment, Hilda! Yes, sometimes it’s good to make a break from heavy/creamy desserts and fried food. 🙂 But still there are some sweets that aren’t very sugary. 🙂

  3. What a wonderful healthy alternative to buttery desserts! It’s hard to skip dessert when you are trying to be a little healthier- you feel so deprived!! GREAT way to have it all!! 🙂

    • Oh yes! I almost always crave sweets after having a meal! 😀 But another good alternative- to eat some honey instead of dessert.. But that’s difficult! 😀

  4. It seems great minds think alike – I had soufflé this week, too 😉 The apples look delicious, and serving it in the little pots make them look just too adorable!
