4 egg whites
Butter and extra sugar for greasing moulds
For the marinated raspberries:-

30g caster sugar
40ml Water

To make the souffles first cut the rhubarb into short pieces,place in a small saucepan and cover with water and bring to the boil then reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer until soft,rub the rhubarb through a fine sieve into another pan,press the rhubarb firmly through the sieve to extract as much fruit as possible leaving just the stringy pulp behind,add the vanilla to the rhubarb mix then mix the cornflour with the sugar and the egg yolk and stir until smooth and lump free,add this to the rhubarb/vanilla mixture bring to the boil stirring constantly,then turn off the heat and allow to cool before adding one egg white,stir well.
Whip the remaining egg whites in a clean bowl until they form peaks,using a whisk stir a quarter of the whites into the rhubarb mixture then gently fold the remaining egg whites into the mixture,be gentle but quick so as no to lose any of the air that has has been added.
Butter 4 souffle molds and sprinkle with sugar,fill the molds until the mixture is about 1cm under the rim,place the molds in an ovenproof dish and fill the dish with hot water until 1cm under the rim of the molds.Bake them in a preheated 190-200C oven for 35 to 40 minutes.
While the souffles are baking prepare the raspberries by dissolving the caster sugar in the water,bring to the boil and then reduce heat to simmer and simmer until the mix starts to thicken slightly ,add the cointreau and raspberries ,cover and turn off the heat.
Serve the souffles by turning out on dessert plates ,arrange raspberries on side.
