  • 6 large egg whites
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 3/4 tsp grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

2. In a large bowl, beat egg whites on high speed until foamy, then gradually beat in 6 tablespoons sugar until whites hold stiff peaks.
3. In another bowl, beat egg yolks until thick with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, peel, and vanilla.
4. Fold yolks into whites.
5. Over high heat, stir citrus juice mixture until boiling.
6. Off the heat, spoon egg mixture in large dollops into the hot sauce.

8. Spoon sauce out with souffle; souffle center may be slightly creamy.
