Prune Souffle


  • 1/2 pound of prunes
  • 3 tablespoonfuls of powdered sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 small teaspoonful of vanilla


Beat the yolks of the eggs and the sugar to a cream, add the vanilla,and mix them with the prunes, the prunes having been stewed, drained, the stones removed, and each prune cut into four pieces. When ready to serve fold in lightly the whites of the eggs, which have been whipped to a stiff froth, a dash of salt having been added to the whites before whipping them. Turn it into a pudding-dish and bake in a moderate oven for twenty minutes. Serve it as soon as it is taken from the oven. A few chopped almonds, or meats from the prune-pits, may be added to the mixture before the whites are put in if desired.
