This was my first ever attempt at making souffle of any type, shape or form and was inspired by a guest post from Georgia of THE COMFORT OF COOKING as a featured blogger on Chef Dennis' MTMF
Do have a go at Georgia's recipe. I've got a funny feeling that perhaps I had the oven a little hot or perhaps cooked mine a little long. They were volcanic and in massive proportion ! Making this again, I'd either 1/2 the recipe or make 4 smaller ones as I really did struggle to try and scoff one of these and couldn't finish it.
Georgia makes hers beautiful and refined. Mine were rather rustic in appearance.....
After removing from the oven, I dusted them with some cocoa powder. They did sag a little - but at least did not sink before being eaten.
These enormous monsters came out the oven ! Below is what went in....
After this picture, I did run a teaspoon handle round the inside of the rim. I believed that was meant to give a good rise and an even top. They rose alright - to epic proportions - but the tops went a bit crazy.
Any ideas where I went wrong ?
Not bad for a first ever souffle though !
