MESS OF THE WEEK (3) Pleasy Cheesy Souffle

Leave a comment

Hello food…..

So, I first made Cheese Soufflé when on placement and although I’m not the biggest fan of eating it, it is ‘such fun’ to make! Everyone seems to find making soufflés a challenge, but it’s not that difficult really, just make sure you DON’T open the oven when cooking! 😀 Enjoy!


50g flour

50g butter

150ml milk, warmed

100g strong cheese

4 large egg yolks

5 large egg whites


  1. Melt the butter in a pan, careful not to burn, add flour gradually and stir.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the milk and nutmeg and bring to boil.
  3. Slowly add the milk to the butter mixture, whilst stirring.
  4. Add cheese so it melts into the mixture, leaving a few chunks of cheese unmelted.
  5. Leave the mixture to cool and separate the eggs. Whisk the egg whites into stiff peaks.
  6. When the mixture is cool, add the egg yolks and mix well.
  7. Gradually add the egg whites. Fold in gently, careful to maintain air in the egg whites. Season.
  8. Completely butter and flour each soufflé mould. Add mixture so ¾ full.
  9. Bake in oven for 17 minutes at gas mark 5.
  10. Serve with a rocket, tomato and onion salad, ooorrrrrrrrrrr if you’re feeling more adventurous: rocket, poached pear and toasted walnut salad.
