For the pastry cream

  • In a bowl add the egg yolks, 30 g granulated sugar, 50 g of the milk, flour, corn starch, and whisk well. Set aside. 
  • In a pot add the rest of the milk, the rest of the sugar, the vanilla extract, and place it over medium heat until it comes to a boil.
  • Transfer the pot’s mixture very slowly into the bowl with the yolks, whisking constantly. Transfer the whole mixture back into the pot and place it over medium heat. Whisk constantly until the cream thickens.
  • Transfer the cream to a bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and refrigerate it to chill. Make sure the plastic wrap is touching the surface of the cream so that it doesn’t form a skin.

For the souffle

  • Add the egg whites along with the lemon juice into a mixer’s bowl and beat at high speed until a meringue starts shaping. 
  • Add the sugar in batches and beat until you get a smooth, thick meringue. Set it aside.

To assemble

  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan.
  • Add 150 g of the pastry cream into a bowl and fluff it with a fork. Transfer the rest of the pastry cream into a pastry bag.
  • Add 120 g of the jam, the food coloring paste, and whisk well.
  • Add a ladleful of the meringue into the mixture and whisk well. Add the rest of the meringue in two batches and fold gently with a silicone spatula so that it retains its volume. 
  • Transfer to a pastry bag and fill 4 ramekins that are buttered and sprinkled with sugar. Flatten their surface with a spatula so that they will rise evenly. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove, make a hole in their center and divide the rest of the pastry cream and the strawberry jam among them.
  • Serve with icing sugar.
