  • Preheat oven to 175°C regular oven.
  • Cut 2 pineapple rings into small pieces (save the rest of the rings).
  • Whisk egg whites until stiff.
  • Whisk  egg yolks and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Cut cream cheese into small pieces.
  • Whisk cream cheese and lemon juice into the egg mixture.
  • Fold in the flour and pineapple pieces.
  • Carefully fold in the egg whites and divide the dough into 8 greased soufflé moulds (approx. 150 ml).
  • Sift icing sugar over the moulds and bake them in the middle of the oven for about 20 minutes.
  • Arrange the pineapple soufflés in their moulds with pineapple rings cut in halves and serve immediately.

For an even easier process, save time and prepare your pineapple soufflé batter up to 4 hours in advance. Follow steps one through eight and place the moulds covered in the refrigerator. When you are ready to bake the pineapple soufflé desserts, take them out of the fridge and let them sit until they have reached room temperature and bake as described in the recipe.


Only use room temperature eggs as cold eggs are harder to whisk, and you will not get as much lift and puffiness in your soufflé. Also, it is essential not to overfold and whip the egg whites into the base mixture. Gently fold in the egg whites until the streaks of white disappear.


To ensure the right rise of the soufflés, add some sugar to the moulds after they have been greased. It makes for an easier uprise for the soufflé during baking. Also make sure that there is absolutely no souffle mixture around the edges. This will make the souffle bake unevenly.

Questions about pineapple soufflé

Master the art of soufflés with our pineapple soufflé recipe. A fruit soufflé with pineapple is an elegant and surprisingly simple dessert. You only need a few ingredients and a couple of minutes to prep the soufflé. We have compiled a short list with the essential information you need to know about this dessert and, more importantly, how to make it. Read below to learn more!

How to make pineapple soufflé?
It is surprisingly easing to make pineapple soufflé. Whisk egg whites until stiff and then whisk the egg yolks and sugar until light and fluffy. Cut the cream cheese into small pieces and whisk it into the egg mixture along with lemon juice. Add flour and half of the pineapple rings cut into small pieces, saving the remaining rings for later. Carefully fold in egg whites and divide the dough into eight greased soufflé moulds. For a final touch, sift icing sugar over the moulds and bake them in the oven for about 20 minutes at 175°. Enjoy the pineapple soufflés while they are still warm.
How to store pineapple soufflé?
You can store pineapple soufflé batter to use for later, but it is not possible to store baked soufflés. Soufflés, and also this pineapple soufflé, should be served immediately after baking since they will start the deflating process right after removing them from the oven. But you can prepare your soufflé batter, divide in moulds and store in the fridge for a few hours before baking, covered with cling film.
Can you make pineapple soufflé ahead?
If you want to save time, you can make the soufflé base a few hours in advance. While some might be inclined to make a soufflé up to 3 days ahead of time and keep it in the fridge, we do not recommend doing this as the soufflé will soak up all the liquids and lose its crust. You can, however, prepare the pineapple soufflé batter and refrigerate for up to 4 hours before baking. Make sure to let the pineapple soufflé desserts reach room temperature again before baking.
What is a fruit soufflé?
A fruit soufflé is a sweet dessert soufflé flavoured with fruits. As the recipe is versatile, you can choose your favourite seasonal fruit, making this dessert great to have on hand throughout the year. A sweet fruit soufflé like this pineapple soufflé is sometimes served with ice cream, fruit, or a sauce but can easily be enjoyed on its own.

Refreshing piña colada inspired soufflé

If you like piña coladas, you should try this modified version of our pineapple soufflé recipe with added coconut flavour. This tropical soufflé variation has freshness from the pineapples and a nice coconut bite. Follow the recipe, but substitute some of the flour with coconut flour – just make sure to only substitute up to half the amount as the soufflé needs the flour to hold its shape. Serve with a generous sprinkle of desiccated coconut on top of the half pineapple rings. Or, for a grown-up version, substitute some of the lemon juice with coconut rum.
