Ingredients

Banana Base:

2 ounces butter

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup sugar

8 ounces, bananas, very ripe, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces

2 tablespoons dark rum

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Souffle:

2 tablespoons butter, softened

1/3 cup sugar, for dusting

12 egg whites

4 ounces sugar

2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into 1/4 inch chips

Directions

  1. To make the Banana Base: in a medium saucepan, over a high heat, brown the butter. Add the sugars and continue to cook stirring constantly until caramel color, about 5 minutes. Add the chopped bananas and stir until well coated. Continue to cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the dark rum and lemon juice. Transfer mixture to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool to room temperature.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. Brush the inside of 6 (6-ounce) ramekins with softened butter and dust with sugar.
  4. To make the souffle: beat the egg whites on medium speed, in a mixer with the whip attachment, to soft peaks. With the motor running, add the sugar in a slow but steady stream. Continue to whip to medium stiff peaks. With a large rubber spatula, fold 1/2 of the meringue into the Banana Base. Add the finely chopped chocolate chips and fold in the remaining 1/2 of the meringue. Fill each prepared ramekin over the top with the souffle mixture. Bake the souffles for 12 minutes. Serve immediately.
