1/4 cup lemon marmalade (or any flavor marmalade you prefer)
1 - 2 tablespoons butter
4 egg whites
pinch of salt
1/3 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 375, allowing 5 minutes for this before you start. Melt butter in a small pan. Brush four ramekins (1-cup capacity each) with the butter
Melt marmalade with 1/4 cup water in a small pan.
Meanwhile, stiffly whisk egg whites with a pinch of salt. Add sugar and continue whisking 30 - 60 seconds to make a light meringue.
Stir about one-quarter of meringue into melted, still warm marmalade. Add this to remaining meringue and fold together.
Spoon mixture into prepared ramekins, making decorative shallow peaks at their centers. Bake until puffed and brown, 7 - 10 minutes.
Set ramekins on individual plates and serve at once.
Note: I found this recipe did not make enough soufflé to serve four; everyone wanted more of this ephemeral delight. Now I double the recipe to serve four.
