Easy Cheese Soufflé

Soufflé is one of those dishes that has a big, scary reputation… even though it can be one of the easiest things in the world to make!

Seriously, Soufflé – cheese especially – is nowhere near as finicky as you may have heard. Don’t harass it when it’s in the oven, don’t slam the oven door, and serve it right away – done. It WILL deflate less than a minute after being taken from the oven – that’s just thermodynamics, not any failure on your part.

This recipe takes ease in preparation a step further, and just involves a blender or food processor – no making a separate béchamel sauce, no beating egg whites… super easy! Also: gluten free!

Easy Cheese Soufflé

Butter
7 large eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1.4 cup milk
1 tsp mustard powder
1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup grated Swiss cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Use butter to grease two 16oz ceramic ramekins, preheat oven to 375F

Blitz everything except cheese in blender for 30 seconds. Divide cheese between two ramekins, fill with egg mixture.

Bake for 50 minutes, serve immediately – you’ll have about 30 seconds before the soufflé deflates!

How many times have you come across a gluten-free recipe claiming to be “just as good as the normal version!”, only to wind up with weird textures, aftertastes, etc? Most gluten-free recipes are developed by taking a “normal” recipe, and swapping in a simulated “all purpose” gluten-free flour… whether store bought, or a homemade version. “Beyond Flour” takes a different approach: developing the recipe from scratch. Rather than swapping out the flour for an “all purpose” mix, I use various alternative flours as individual ingredients – skillfully blending flavours, textures, and other properties unique to each flour. Supporting ingredients and different techniques are also utilized to achieve the perfect end goal … not just a “reasonable facsimile”. Order your copy here.

  1. I tried chocolate souffle once and was very disappointed: after all the hype it just tastes like chocolaty air! Since then I wanted to try the cheese version. Yours look really good!
