8. How to make cheese souffle
Just the word 'souffle' is enough to scare some home cooks - indeed, many of us think of souffles as difficult dishes best left to French-trained chefs. But the truth is that souffles are quite easy to master, and this video shows you how!This cheese souffle recipe is as authentic as they come and calls for just a handful of simple ingredients. Comte cheese is used here, but you could easily use your favourite cheese - such as Cheddar, Gruyere, Emmental or even Red Leicester.The key to a beautifully risen souffle is to whip your egg whites to stiff peaks, either by hand or with an electric whisk, and to gently fold the whites into the bechamel mixture using a metal utensil. Folding the two mixtures together gently ensures that you keep the air in the mixture.Secondly, as with most baking, resist temptation to open the oven door whilst the souffle is baking. The change in temperature that results can drastically affect the outcome, and not in a good way! Keep your oven light on so that you can check your souffle's progress without opening the oven door.Once your souffle is beautifully golden and risen, you'll want to serve it straightaway. As they say, a souffle waits for no one!
