Recipe for Cheese Souffle

Cheese Soufflé

You will need: A 5 inch Soufflé dish, Greaseproof papers, 21x14 inches (53.5cmx35cm) string

  • Cooking Oil
  • Dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 oz (25g) butter
  • 1 oz (25g) flour
  • 1/4 pint (150ml) milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon made mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 oz (75g) cheese, either all cheddar or 1/2 cheddar 1/2 parmesan

1.      Pre-heat oven to Gas 5(375F/190C)

2.      Grease Souffleé dish with cooking oil.

3.      Prepare a piece of greaseproof paper 21 x 14 inches (53.5x35cm)

1.      Fold it in half so that doubled sheet measures 21x7 inches

2.      Turn folded edges 2 inches (it now measures 21x5 inches)

3.      Grease the top 3 inches of the paper above the fold.

4.      Wrap the paper folded side inwards and greased section uppermost, around the dish.

5.      Tie securely with string

4.      Shake in breadcrumbs so that both dish and greased paper are coated. this will stop the soufflé sticking.

5.      Now start the soufflé. Make a panada (which is a thick glossy sauce) as follows: Met butter, add flour, cook gently. Add the milk gradually, stirring as it thickens.

6.      Remove from heat, stir in seasonings: salt, cayenne pepper, mustard

7.      Add egg yolks and stir.
8.      Stir in the grated cheese.

9.      Beat egg whites up stiffly so they stand in a peak (This could be done in advance but make sure you have them really stiff before folding into soufflé mixture).

10.Fold egg whites gently into soufflé mixture.

11.Pour into prepared dish. Make deep cuts into the soufflé mixture, both across and in a circle. This cuts the egg white and allows the soufflé to rise, if not, the whites would set and not rise very well.

12.Put straight into the oven at Gas 5(375F/190C) and cook exactly 1/2 an hour.

Serve immediately.
