Pumpkin Soufflé is a light, fluffy dessert with the same warm and cozy flavors of pumpkin pie – without the heaviness. It’s a treat to make and share with loved ones after a special dinner and will satisfy that sweet tooth. They make a beautiful presentation, too, and can be dressed up to taste.
This recipe with honey is surprisingly easy to make and will wow and impress your guests. When people hear the word soufflé they sometimes get scared – but don’t be! The only real trick to making soufflé is doing your best not to jump up and down or make a lot of loud noises while they are baking. You can still enjoy a deflated Soufflé, it tastes the same, it’s just not nearly as beautiful a presentation when serving. I have quite a few funny stories from life on this, but I promise everyone will still enjoy the dessert.
How to Make Dairy-Free Pumpkin Soufflé
Step One: Gather your ingredients
Here’s the list of ingredients you’ll need coconut milk, arrowroot powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, cloves ground, Waxing Kara Honey, sugar, organic canned pumpkin (not pie filling), Coconut Oil, egg whites, and salt.
Step Two: Mix the base
Preheat oven to 400°F. Whisk together full-fat coconut milk, arrowroot powder, spices, and honey in a small heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, simmer and whisk for a few minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in pumpkin. Pour into a bowl and set aside, allowing to cool.
Step Three: Get the Pumpkin Soufflé ready for baking
Grease ramekins with coconut oil and coat with sugar and set aside.
In a separate, spotless bowl (use lemon juice to clean the bowl), beat egg whites, add salt in small amounts, and slowly add the remaining granulated sugar until egg whites hold stiff peaks.
Gently fold one-third of whites into cooled pumpkin mixture, then fold in remaining whites thoroughly. Fill soufflé batter into greased, sugar-coated ramekins. Place full ramekins in a shallow baking pan. Fill the baking pan with one-half-inch to one inch of boiled, hot water making sure that you don’t get any water in your souffle batter.
Step four: Bake and serve
Bake soufflés until puffed and golden for up to 20 minutes. Serve immediately with powdered sugar, whipped cream, vanilla gelato or creme fraiche.
