2/3cup all-purpose flour
5-- egg yolks

  2. Place berries in food processor or blender. Pulse until puréed. Place in a sieve and press gently to extract juice. Add enough water to yield 2 cups. Combine juice and 1/2 cup sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from heat.

  4. Beat egg whites in a clean, dry bowl with a mixer until frothy. Gradually add remaining 1/2 cup sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Stir 1 cup egg white mixture into blackberry mixture. Fold remaining egg white mixture into blackberry mixture.
  5. Spoon into ramekins or soufflé dish. Bake 20 to 25 minutes (ramekins) or 30 to 40 minutes (soufflé dish), until soufflé rises. Serve immediately.
