Nutritional values

The sweet and sour rhubarb tastes fresh and springlike and supplies us with the important mineral potassium. Potassium plays an important role in maintaining heart rhythm, muscle health and the transmission of nerve impulses. Whipped cream and skimmed milk yogurt provide additional calcium.

Rhubarb is in season from April to June. But that doesn't mean that you have to do without the delicious ice soufflé for the rest of the year. Instead, substitute the rhubarb with sour cherries, fresh or frozen.

Kitchen utensils

1 Pot, 1 Small pot, 1 Baking sheet, 2 Bowls, 1 Measuring cups, 1 Cutting board, 1 Small knife, 1 Tablespoon, 1 Wooden spoon, 1 Hand mixer, 1 Parchment paper, 1 Piping bag, 1 Pastry tip

Preparation steps

Ice Cream Soufflé preparation step 1

Rinse rhubarb and pat dry. Cut about 16 very thin slices of rhubarb for a garnish, if desired. Cut the rest into pieces.

Ice Cream Soufflé preparation step 2

Bring rhubarb, approximately 1/2 cup sugar, and the port wine to a boil in a small pot. Cook, while stirring, until the sugar has dissolved and rhubarb is very soft, about 10 minutes. Place on a plate and let cool completely.

Ice Cream Soufflé preparation step 3

Beat whipping cream with the yogurt until stiff with the hand mixer. Chill in refrigerator.

Ice Cream Soufflé preparation step 4

Cut 4 strips of parchment paper, each about 4 x 6-8 inches. Rinse 4 porcelain or glass molds, each about approximately 5 ounces, in cold water. Wrap a parchment strip around each mold and secure it with a paper clip.

Ice Cream Soufflé preparation step 5

Beat egg yolks with hand mixer until frothy.

Ice Cream Soufflé preparation step 6

Meanwhile, bring remaining sugar and 2 tablespoons water to a boil in a pot and boil until reduced to a syrup, about 3 minutes. Let cool for 1 minute. Beat syrup into yolks with hand mixer on highest speed until mixture is thick and creamy, 7-8 minutes.

Ice Cream Soufflé preparation step 7

Stir in the liqueur.

Ice Cream Soufflé preparation step 8

Beat chilled yogurt mixture into egg mixture until combined. Divide custard mixture among molds, filling almost to the rims. 

Ice Cream Soufflé preparation step 9

Put rhubarb into a piping bag fitted with a 9 mm (approximately 1/3-inch) plain tip. Submerge the tip into custard, then squeeze rhubarb into molds, dividing evenly.

Ice Cream Soufflé preparation step 10

Spoon remaining custard over rhubarb in each mold. Freeze for 4-6 hours. Remove molds from freezer and sprinkle with biscuit crumbs. Remove parchment collars and serve immediately, garnished with rhubarb slices if desired.
