The bodies of dozens, if not hundreds, of ambitious wannabe-chefs litter the TV culinary contest battlefields as a result of this dark art. But you needn't be nervous of trying it for yourself. As a self-confessed kitchen dummy, even I managed to whip up a delicious cheese soufflé which had friends asking for my secret, and I'm sharing that secret with you.

London, England, UK

45 people made this

IngredientsServes: 6

  • 100g butter
  • 100g plain flour
  • 500ml full fat milk
  • 125g Gruyère cheese, grated
  • salt and pepper
  • 5 eggs, room temperature
  • lemon juice

MethodPrep:20min ›Cook:10min ›Ready in:30min

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4 and grease 6 ramekins with butter.
  2. Melt 100g butter in a pan over a medium heat, stir in the flour and leave to cook on the heat for a couple of minutes until it forms a paste.
  3. In the meantime, heat the milk, and gradually add this to the paste, continually stirring.
  4. Simmer for 10 minutes, then add the cheese and season with salt and pepper. Leave to cool.
  5. Separate the eggs and stir in the yolks to the cooled mixture. This cheesy bechamel should now be very thick.
  6. Clean a glass bowl by wiping with a touch of lemon juice to clear any greasy spots, and use it to whisk the egg whites into stiff peaks. That's the point at which the white foam forms sharp tips on the end of the whisk, and if you are hand-whisking, the point at which it feels like your arm is going to fall off.
  7. Delicately fold the egg whites into the cheese mixture, being careful not to overwork, because this is the stage where you need to keep as much air in the mixture as possible so it will rise in the oven. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. Pour into the greased ramekins and pop into the oven for 10 minutes.
  9. After the 10 minutes, increase the oven temperature to 220 C / Gas 7 and cook for a further 10 minutes or so until the soufflé has risen and looks beautifully golden.


I was a complete novice when I first made this recipe and presumed I'd make a disaster of it. But it came out perfect the first time, and the times I have made it since. I can't claim the credit with my skills, so it must be the recipe!

What are Fluffy Japanese Souffle Pancakes?

The ingredients for Souffle Pancakes are similar to regular pancakes, so what makes them different? What makes souffle pancakes so pillowy soft and delicious?

Souffle Pancakes are all about the eggs. Egg yolks and egg whites are separated, and the whites are beaten to make the meringue. Just like how you would make savory and sweet souffle or chiffon cakes.

The egg whites are beaten until stiff peaks form and then are folded gently and carefully into the rest of the batter. The souffle pancakes are extra fluffy because the air bubbles hold their shape inside the pancake batter.

As a result, the pancakes are super airy, like souffle. When you cut the pancakes, you can even hear the sound of air bubbles escaping!

Enjoy these souffle pancakes the same way you do with standard flapjacks, with fresh whipped cream, some fruits, syrups, and toppings like chocolate chips and nuts.

Deviled Eggs

Once the eggs have boiled, immerse immediately in a bowl of very cold water and leave there until they have cooled down. This will ease the job of peeling the eggs.

Peel the shell from the eggs and then rinse the eggs under a running tap to remove any bits of shell. Then refrigerate the eggs for 30 minutes. This will firm the eggs up, keep the yolks yellow and make slicing the eggs easier.

Remove the chilled eggs from the fridge and with a sharp knife, slice the eggs in half lengthwise.

Gently squeeze the edges of the egg half to loosen the yolk. This should make the yolk pop out. Place the yolk in a medium sized mixing bowl.

Mash all the egg yolks into tiny pieces with a fork.

Add all ingredients except the Paprika. Mash together until a smooth paste has formed.

Fill the egg white halves with the mixture and sprinkle the tops with a little paprika.
