Rated as 4.47 out of 5 Stars

"Even a regular sharp Cheddar souffle is an amazing thing, but when you add little pieces of caramelized apple, you're talking about taking it up to a whole 'nother level of awesomeness."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and melt 1 tablespoon butter just until the edges of the butter look slightly browned and smells nutty, about 1 minute. Stir apples into butter and cook until they just begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with sugar and continue to cook until apples are soft and slightly caramelized, about 5 minutes. Transfer apples to a plate and spread out to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 4 ramekins generously with butter. Place ramekins onto a sheet pan.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small skillet over medium heat; stir in flour and cook until mixture is smooth and raw taste of flour is cooked out of the roux, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour milk into roux, bring to a simmer, and whisk until mixture thickens to a smooth white sauce, about 2 minutes. Cook, whisking, for 1 minute more and remove from heat; cool white sauce to lukewarm temperature.
  4. Pour white sauce into a large mixing bowl and whisk in salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, nutmeg, and egg yolks. Stir Cheddar cheese into white sauce mixture until thoroughly combined.
  5. Whisk egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until they hold soft, fluffy peaks, about 2 minutes. Gently fold half the beaten egg whites into the souffle batter. Repeat with remaining whites to make a soft, airy batter. Fold in cooled apple mixture. Divide mixture into prepared ramekins.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until souffles have risen and tops are browned, about 22 minutes. Souffles will fall slightly as they cool. Serve warm.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You should have about 2 cups of batter. You can divide each 1/2 cup portion into whatever sized ramekin you have, but a 4 3/4- to 5-ounce size is ideal. Basically, when it's fully puffed and browned, it's done. And for goodness sake, serve very warm, but not piping hot!

While the directions and the video were easy to follow I just did not really enjoy the souffle. It tasted funny.

I want to give this 5 stars, but it didn't come out perfectly for me. It's probably my fault. I usually cook with a butter substitute to keep things low fat. I imagine if I had used regular butt...

My first soufflé EVER and it turned out fabulous. Beautiful presentation and easy directions. Will make again, after all, who does not like compliments on their cooking?
