1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons butter, softened
3 large eggs, separated
In a large saucepan combine the milk, 1 cup water and the salt and bring the mixture to a simmer over moderately low heat. Stir in the cornmeal, a little at a time, and cook the mixture, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes, or until it is thickened.
In a food processor blend the mixture for 30 seconds; add the butter and the egg yolks, and blend the mixture until it is combined thoroughly.
In a large bowl with an electric mixer beat the egg whites until they just form stiff peaks, stir one-fourth of the corn meal mixture into them, and fold in the remaining corn meal mixture gently but thoroughly. Pour the mixture into a buttered 1 1/2-quart souffl
