Gay Cook’s tips for making soufflés

  • Although soufflés may seem intimidating, they are easy if you follow the simple tips outlined here
  • A soufflé cooked in a hot oven will rise quickly and fall quickly once it leaves the oven — don't worry about it.
  • If baked in a bain-marie (water bath to gently cook food or keep it warm)  in a medium oven, the soufflé will take longer to cook and will not collapse as quickly.
  • If you wish to slow the cooking time, reduce the oven heat to 250 degrees F and bake for an extra 20 minutes. To speed cooking, increase the heat to 450 degrees F and bake for 10 minutes less.
  • To bring eggs to room temperature, warm them in a bowl of water for 5 minutes. This will give them more volume when beaten
  • Beat egg whites in a clean metal bowl (copper works especially well) with a balloon whisk or an electric beater, just until shiny peaks begin to form. Don`t overbeat or the soufflé will not rise to its full height.
  • An ovenproof soufflé dish that is circular, straight-sided and glazed will produce the best results.
