Souflé Recipe

Souflé - the perfect item for a brunch with friends. I have great recipe for you and believe it or not, it’s much easier than you would think.

Ingredients (for 6 individual ramekins)

For crust

  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 2 tsp dry yeast
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • ½ tsp salt

For filling

  • 6 eggs
  • 6 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

To make the dough:

  • Mix all ingredients and knead the dough just enough to make it smooth and uniform.

  • Grease 6 individual ramekins. 

  • Divide the dough into 6 equal parts. On a clean surface sprinkled with a little flour, roll the dough open into a circle. 

  • Carefully line the ramekin with the dough. Use a knife to cut out excess. 

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Now for the filling, mix all ingredients and distribute it amongst the 6 ramekins. Don't fill it up to the top, the filling will expand. 

  • Place the ramekins straight into the oven for about 30-35 mins, or until golden on top. 
  • Use hot pads to carefully remove them from the oven, they will be very hot!

And there you have it! As soon as you remove it from the oven it will be nicely puffed (like in the picture above), but as it cools down it flattens a little, that’s normal.

You could play around with the recipe and add sautéed spinach, artichokes or anything you like to your filling. Just be creative! My husband suggested feta cheese, so next time I make this I will be mixing in spinach and feta cheese.

If by any chance you have any leftover dough, you can use it to make dinner rolls, or use as pizza crust. In fact, this is the recipe I use for homemade pizzas and they turn out a-mazing.

On a different note, I am putting my hexie placemat to good use use and I just love how well it coordinates with my dishware. This was such a fun little project. I guess now I'll have to make more of these to match my other sets of dishes!

Hope you have fun trying out this little recipe and let me know how it goes.
