Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Butter 5 x 150ml individual soufflé dishes or ramekins and sprinkle all over with 2 tbsp soft brown sugar. Place on a baking sheet. Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add sugar, cream, vanilla and a good pinch salt. When sugar is melted, bubble for 1 min until it looks like a sauce. Pour 200ml into a jug for serving.
  2. Stir egg yolks and flour into remaining caramel in the saucepan. Whisk constantly over medium heat until mixture thickens, about 3 mins. Sieve into a bowl and cool for 15 mins. Beat egg whites in large bowl until foamy, then gradually beat in remaining 2 tbsp sugar until whites are stiff but not dry. Fold one-third of whites into caramel mixture in the pan, then fold that back into the whites. Divide among dishes, and use a palette knife to scrape top level. Bake until soufflés are puffed and golden – about 11 mins. The soufflés should still be a little unset in the middle, but not runny, so if you’re serving four, break into your tester to check. Return the rest to oven for 2 mins if underdone. Serve immediately with caramel sauce, warmed a little while soufflés are baking.

SO easy to do! I'd never made a souffle before this one, and decided to make it for a dinner party. It turned out fantastically! Very easy to read instructions, they were well risen and tasted absolutely gorgeous, i had many many complements on the pud!

Only thing i would mention was that the mixture was only enough to fill 4 ramekins (and only just!). Perhaps my ramekins were a little large than what this recipe states, but they are regular sized ramekins. Any smaller and i'd feel as though i was cheating my guests out of a pudding!

All in all, you MUST try!

These looked and tasted great, but were too hot to eat when they came out of the oven, so by the time they cooled down enough to eat, they had sunk!
