Cheesy Souffle

Posted on

Here’s a guide on making a soufflé. You can make it sweet, like a chocolate soufflé, or savory, like this cheese version.

The key to a perfect soufflé is whisking the egg whites to stiff peaks and gently folding them into the batter. This creates the airy texture that makes the soufflé rise.
