  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Brush the insides of 2 (8-ounce) ramekins with 1 tablespoon melted butter and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar. Place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter and 2 teaspoons butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; cook and stir flour in the melted butter until golden brown and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Pour in milk and cook, stirring continuously, until smooth and thick, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a mixing bowl.
  3. Stir orange zest and 1 tablespoon brandy-based orange liqueur into butter mixture until combined. Add egg yolks and 1/8 teaspoon vanilla; mix until smooth.
  4. Whisk egg whites in a large bowl until frothy. Slowly add half the 1/4 cup sugar and whisk until combined; add remaining sugar and continue to whisk until meringue is thick and holds it shape, but is not stiff.
  5. Fold half the meringue into egg yolk mixture until combined. Gently fold in second half until well mixed. Transfer to the prepared ramekins, allowing 1/4-inch of space at the top.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until risen and browned, 16 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Make the Creme Anglaise Sauce ahead of time. Serve it with the souffles, and pour the custard in the center of each souffle.
  • For a special dinner party, you can double or triple the recipe and prepare most of it ahead of time. Follow the recipe to Step 3. Refrigerate the custard mix and egg whites. About half an hour before serving, preheat the oven, whip the egg whites, and proceed with the recipe.

This was amazing. My first souffle was quite impressive thanks to you. Your video was very informative.

Absolutely delicious. We returned from a trip to France, and I knew I had to learn how to make this wonderful dessert. I followed the recipe exactly along with the Grand Marnier Anglaise Ssauce ...

My first time making a souffle! Came out perfect and super delish! My daughter and I devoured it! Thanks for a great recipe!

Not enough orange flavour, definitely will add more next time. Good base Soufflé for other flavours.

Worked perfectly. I didn't use the creme anglaise recipe here, I used a different one on you tube. However the soufflé turned out perfect. Yes, you have to eat it right out of the oven or it ...

This was my first souffle and it came out awesome. It rose fine and with the addition of the creme sauce, it's truly amazing. Thanks..

I have always wanted to make a Grand Marnier Souffle but was afraid to try it.....boy am I glad I made this one...thanks chef John....I hit it out of the park....

I added a little flaked coconut to the top of these before baking - fabulous! I also used gluten free flour (cup 4 cup) in place of regular flour.
