Lemon Souffle (French Dessert) 柠檬舒芙蕾(法国甜点)

My very 1st attemp to make this French Desserts. Presentation not that satisfactory but still acceptable. Hope to improve next attempt.
Can't really remember when I copied this recipe from. It must be one of my friends' recipe book. Most important, my daughter and hubby really enjoy it, hardworks pays off.


150gms castor sugar
4 large egg white
3 large egg yolk
25gms flour

Zest of 1 lemon

3 tbsp lemon juice

250ml milk

icing sugar for dusting

  1. Preheat oven 170 degree celcious. Fill up about 1 inch of hot water in the roasting pan or deep baking pan. the water should reach half the ramekins (souffle cups).
  2. Beat egg white till bubbles appear add 1 tablespoon of sugar, continue to beat till still and soft peaks form when lifted.
  3. In another mixing bowl, beat yolks with the remaining sugar till mixture is light, add and mix in lemon zest , lemon juice, milk and flour, continue beating till well combine.
  4. Pour the egg white into yolk mixture.
  5. Using a hand whisk, gently fold in the egg white into the yolk mixture in circular movement from top to bottom, to keep fluffiness of the texture.
  6. Fill the ramekins with batter to the top.
  7. Put the ramekins in the baking pan in the oven and bake for 25 mins
  8. do not open the oven during this time.
  9. after 25 mins check that the souffles have a golden brown on top. Otherwise bake for further 5 to 10 mins.
  10. Serve warm with icing sugar dusted on op of the souffle.

This is too much icing sugar liao! But Tammie love it, once a while, I think should be OK!
