Top Rated Soufflé Recipes
This is another very light and fluffy treat for dessert lovers out there. You’ll notice that almonds have been included for some heart-healthy fat.
For even the most experienced cooks, making a soufflé can be intimidating. I’ve begun to play around with soufflé recipes, each time remembering a couple of tricks to ensure my soufflé always rises.To begin, you make a white roux, cooking melted butter with flour until the raw scent of the flour is gone. As long as you keep your heat on medium or medium-high, and watch and stir your roux, it won’t burn. To the roux, you add seasonings and milk to create the béchamel. The key here is to essentially bring this mixture to a boil, constantly stirring the bottom so the roux dissolves into the milk, which will cause the mixture to thicken. How thick is thick? You want the mixture to stop moving clockwise when you stop stirring it clockwise.I also don’t use cream of tartar when whipping my egg whites. Instead, I always make sure there are no traces of egg yolk in my whites, and that I whip them to stiff peaks (I still raise the bowl upside down with a little shake to test this). Once I fold the whites together with the cheese, I’m very gentle, taking care to not deflate my whites, or the soufflé won’t rise.This is a simple soufflé recipe that you can put on the table within an hour. Serve with a hearty green salad with beets, or simply alone for a light appetizer. Just remember to serve it immediately, before it begins to fall as it cools.Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Everyday Eggs.

Flaky and airy, these potatoes are a classic French recipe.

How to Make Chocolate Soufflé
This post is heavily detailed to teach beginner bakers how to make fluffy, yet rich 7 ingredient chocolate soufflé. If you’re already a pro, you can scroll right down to the recipe. But for best success, I recommend reading all of my tips and explanations, as well as reviewing the video tutorial and step-by-step photos.
Along with creme brûlée, chocolate souffle is one of the most raved about, luxurious French desserts. But here’s the thing that most beginner bakers don’t realize: it sounds a lot more intimidating than it actually is. Trust me, I was a ball of nerves when I first attempted soufflé in a French dessert class 3 years ago. It’s where I learned to bake choux pastry, too. Once I got started on both, I realized I was perfectly capable– and you are too. In fact, many are surprised to learn that you only need 7 basic ingredients for chocolate soufflé and the entire process is about 45 minutes start to finish. (If that!)
I’m going to walk you through each step so you feel confident when it’s your turn.
11 Soufflés Perfect for an Elegant (but Effortless) Dinner
Incredibly simple and versatile, soufflés are a great secret weapon to keep in your back pocket when you want a quick and delicious dinner or dessert option any time of year (though they naturally lend themselves to romantic occasions, like Valentine’s Day). They seem fancy and maybe fussy, but they’re really just delightful. If you’re still afraid of soufflés, just keep these tips and tricks in mind:
1. Don’t over-whip your egg whites. Yes, you want billowy clouds, but they should still be moist and soft. To help them achieve those lofty peaks, make sure there’s not a trace of fat (butter, egg yolk, etc.) in the bowl with them.
2. Use a light touch when folding in the whipped egg whites so they stay fluffy.
3. Don’t open the oven door during baking, no matter how tempting it is!
4. Use a parchment or aluminum foil “collar” to help the souffle rise up above its baking dish if you like.
5. Above all, don’t stress, and know that even the airiest soufflé will deflate as it cools—and will still taste delicious!
Bellemain Porcelain Ramekins, 6 for $12.95 on Amazon
Individually portioned souffles are classic, and so are these simple ramekins for baking and serving them.
Pair your savory soufflé with a simple salad or any vegetable side and you’ve got a protein-filled dinner that you can make with whatever you find in the fridge (as long as you’ve got a few eggs). The sweet versions can stand alone, or be accompanied with fresh whipped cream and a fruit sauce or fresh berries. Check out these 11 soufflé recipes for an elegant and easy meal you can have on the table in almost no time.
1. Leek and Feta Cheese Soufflé
Dusting the ramekins with grated parmesan makes these soufflés extra special, but the blend of sweet leeks and sharp feta is stellar to begin with. Make the leeks ahead of time and these will come together even quicker. Get the Leek and Feta Cheese Soufflé recipe.

Marcus Nilsson/Real Simple
Forget basic mashed potatoes—fluffy, egg-enriched potato soufflé is the way to go (sweet potato soufflé is great too). Loaded with cheddar cheese and fresh chives, this is an amazing side dish that pairs well with any grilled or roasted meat, or simply a green salad, sharply dressed. Get the Cheddar and Chive Potato Soufflé recipe.
3. Jack Cheese and Grits Soufflé
This is an easy soufflé recipe that you can have for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (try adding green chilies, avocado, and cilantro for a full southwestern soufflé). Grits lend texture, and whole eggs mean there’s no whipping whites involved, but these unconventional soufflés still puff up in golden clouds. Use any sharp, aged cheese you like to switch up the flavor. Get our Jack Cheese and Grits Soufflé recipe.
4. Cajun Soufflé
Creole seasoning, andouille sausage, and sauteed bell peppers and onions give this large-format souffle a kick, just as welcome at brunch as at dinner. Feel free to cook it in individual ramekins if you prefer. Get the Cajun Soufflé recipe.

Use a light touch and a silicone spatula to fold the whipped whites into the other ingredients so they don't deflate.
6. Havarti Soufflé with Scallions and Dill
Christopher Testani/Country Living
Havarti, scallions, and dill give this soufflé a Nordic nuance. Make this recipe in one large soufflé dish or several smaller ramekins—and you can throw in any vegetables you have on hand, like roasted bell peppers or broccoli, to make it more substantial. Maybe even a little flaked smoked salmon… Get the Havarti Soufflé with Scallions and Dill recipe.
7. Vegan Spinach Artichoke Soufflé
Okay, so soufflé without eggs is a little tricky. You can try substituting aquafaba (as in this vegan chocolate soufflé recipe), but another option is to simply evoke the look and feel of a souffle using a pretty nifty pastry trick. Make an airy croissant-inspired vegan and gluten-free dough, then wrap it around a blend of artichoke hearts, onion, garlic, spinach, bell pepper, and firm tofu, with nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor. Bake until it’s puffed and golden, and dig in. Get the Vegan Spinach Artichoke Soufflé recipe.
8. Clean Eating Pea and Ricotta Soufflé
Just as you can use different types of cheese in cheesecake, soufflés welcome all kinds too. This light and fluffy ricotta-based soufflé brings sweet green peas into the mix, for a healthy but still satisfying rendition of a classic that’s full of fresh flavor. Get the Pea and Ricotta Soufflé recipe.
9. Raspberry Soufflé
Dessert versions of soufflé are just as adaptable as the savory sort. Fresh raspberries lend sweet-tart flavor and a naturally rosy hue to these treats. In an inversion of the classic chocolate-soufflé-with-raspberry-coulis pairing, try topping these with bittersweet chocolate sauce. Get the Raspberry Soufflé recipe.
10. Meyer Lemon Soufflé
Slightly less fruity, more floral, and with their own natural zing, Meyer lemon soufflés shine like warm winter sun. (When Meyer lemons aren’t in season, try this recipe with regular lemons, but know that you might need a bit more sugar.) A simple dusting of confectioner’s sugar is all this light, bright, lovely dessert needs—except for a spoon, of course. Get the Meyer Lemon Soufflé recipe.
11. Chocolate Soufflé
OK, we can’t resist the classic. Try a milk chocolate soufflé if you want something a little different, but if you’re a dark chocolate lover, this one’s for you. Get our Chocolate Soufflé recipe.

6) Chocolate Soufflè Cake With Raspberry Sauce
Fluffy and delicate, this light cake contains fewer egg yolks and less butter than is customary. Serve at room temperature, with or without the sauce.
7) Crab Cakes with Avocado Sauce
Delicate to handle, elegant and refined in taste, these crab cakes have just enough bread in them to hold together, with some mayonnaise added for moisture and flavor. Although nothing can replace real crabmeat, you can substitute surimi, the imitation crabmeat made of crab shells and fish such as pollack and cod. Surimi is widely available in markets.
8) Spinach, Ham, and Parmesan Soufflé
The Parmesan cheese and bread crumb crust and topping of this soufflé will be browner and crunchier when prepared in a gratin dish, making it easier to serve at the table. It can also be made in a conventional soufflé dish. Leftover soufflé will reinflate when reheated in a 350-degree oven.
9) Lamb Navarin
A navarin is a classic lamb stew, and there are many variations. For a tasty peasant-like dish, I make mine the way my mother used to, with an unboned lamb breast. You can make the navarin ahead of time, up to the point of adding the peas, which should be stirred in at the last moment when the dish is reheated so they don’t lose their bright color.
10) Skillet Duck with Red Oak Salad
Easy and delicious, this duck is cooked in much the same way as Southern fried chicken — fried in its own fat in a covered pot so steam develops, making the meat very moist and tender and the skin crisp. Be sure to use a very large skillet or a saucepan with a lid. Some of the rendered duck fat, a bonus from this recipe, is used in the salad dressing, and the rest is delicious for sautéing potatoes or flavoring soup.

- Unsalted butter, for dish
- 3 tablespoons fine dried bread crumbs
- 1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
- 2 large eggs, separated
- 3 tablespoons heavy cream
- 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- Freshly grated nutmeg
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Butter an 8-inch-long, 1/4-inch-deep oval gratin dish. Coat with bread crumbs, and set the dish aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the potatoes, egg yolks, cream, Parmesan cheese, and garlic until creamy and well combined. Season with salt and pepper, and set the potato mixture aside.
Place egg whites and a pinch of salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Whip on medium speed until the whites are glossy and stiff.
Fold the egg whites into the potato mixture. Transfer mixture to the prepared gratin dish, and bake until golden and puffy, about 40 minutes. Top with nutmeg, and serve.
- ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 ¼ cups heavy cream
- 4 large eggs, separated, plus 3 large egg whites
- 3 tablespoons dry sherry
- 6 ounces (2 packed cups) Gruyère cheese, shredded
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 1 ¼ teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- ½ teaspoon dry mustard
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
Preheat the oven to 375°. Butter a 1 1/2-quart soufflé dish and coat it with 2 tablespoons of the Parmigiano.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the flour to make a paste. Gradually whisk in the cream and bring to a boil over moderate heat, whisking. Reduce the heat to low and cook, whisking, until very thick, 3 minutes. Transfer the base to a large bowl let cool. Stir in the egg yolks, sherry, Gruyère, sour cream, salt, Dijon mustard, dry mustard, cayenne and the remaining 1/4 cup of Parmigiano.
Put the 7 egg whites in a large stainless steel bowl. Add the cream of tartar. Using an electric mixer, beat the whites until firm peaks form. Fold one-third of the whites into the soufflé base to lighten it, then fold in the remaining whites until no streaks remain.
Scrape the mixture into the prepared dish. Run your thumb around the inside rim of the dish to wipe away any crumbs. Bake for about 35 minutes, until the soufflé is golden brown and puffed. Serve right away.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease four 10-ounce (roughly 4.5 inches wide) soufflé ramekins generously with butter, and then coat the ramekins with a thin layer of granulated sugar&ndashshaking to remove any excess sugar (this step will help the soufflé rise and brown evenly). Place the ramekins on a small baking sheet and set aside.
- Prepare puree: Puree the thawed frozen raspberries in a blender until very smooth. Strain through a fine meshed sieve. Discard the seeds and reserve four ounces of raspberry puree to the soufflés.
- In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, first amount of sugar, and cornstarch until thick and pale yellow in color. Whisk in the raspberry puree and lemon juice. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with a whisk attachment, combine the egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt, and whisk over low speed until foamy. Increase the speed to medium-high and slowly add the granulated sugar. Continue to beat the egg whites until they reach soft peaks.
- Add a small amount of beaten egg whites to the egg yolk mixture, and whisk in gently. Fold in the remaining egg whites (some white streaks may remain).
- Pour the mixture carefully into the center of the ramekins, and smooth the tops with a spatula. Run your finger along the edges of the ramekins to remove any excess batter from the sides (this can cause the soufflés to rise unevenly).
- Carefully place in the oven and bake at 400 degrees for 16-20 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Remove, dust with confectioners sugar, and garnish with raspberries. Serve immediately.
This recipe will yield extra raspberry puree. Add the extra puree to your favorite smoothie mix.
