Top Rated Soufflé Recipes

Souffle
For even the most experienced cooks, making a soufflé can be intimidating. I’ve begun to play around with soufflé recipes, each time remembering a couple of tricks to ensure my soufflé always rises. To begin, you make a white roux, cooking melted butter with flour until the raw scent of the flour is gone. As long as you keep your heat on medium or medium-high, and watch and stir your roux, it won’t burn. To the roux, you add seasonings and milk to create the béchamel. The key here is to essentially bring this mixture to a boil, constantly stirring the bottom so the roux dissolves into the milk, which will cause the mixture to thicken. How thick is thick? You want the mixture to stop moving clockwise when you stop stirring it clockwise. I also don’t use cream of tartar when whipping my egg whites. Instead, I always make sure there are no traces of egg yolk in my whites, and that I whip them to stiff peaks (I still raise the bowl upside down with a little shake to test this). Once I fold the whites together with the cheese, I’m very gentle, taking care to not deflate my whites, or the soufflé won’t rise. This is a simple soufflé recipe that you can put on the table within an hour. Serve with a hearty green salad with beets, or simply alone for a light appetizer. Just remember to serve it immediately, before it begins to fall as it cools. Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Everyday Eggs.

The soufflé, meaning “to puff up,” is a delicate French cake made simply of combining egg yolks with beaten egg whites and just a few of other ingredients.  The combination of custard and egg whites causes the pastry to puff up when baked, hence the name.

This blue cheese and honey soufflé was amazing! My husband loves blue cheese and we were having company for dinner and I want to add something else to our steak dinner. I decided an hour before our guests were arriving to make this soufflé and it was a huge hit. Everyone put it on their salad plate with their salad (I added blue cheese to the salad, too).

So this is the chocolate soufflé recipe you’ve all been waiting for, but it’s a bit more like a flourless chocolate cake than a soufflé. It doesn’t give a whole lot of height like a traditional soufflé would, primarily because the ratio of egg whites to the volume of the chocolate base is low. But alas, what comes up must come down, and most towering soufflés do indeed collapse by the time you set them in front of your guests — which is why I like these less fancy little things. They’re denser and more chocolate-y and if you take them out at just the right moment, they’re a little gooey in the middle in the best possible way. They don’t rise as tall, but I think you’ll love them anyway.
