Orange Soufflé (Egg Whites Only Recipe) – With Video


This Orange Soufflé  is the perfect dessert for special entertainment. It rises and puffs up into absolute gorgeousness in the oven. Just as it rises, it also starts to fall as soon as it comes out of the oven, so it must be served quickly. A thin layer on the top is crunchy and caramelized and the inside is light, hot and oh so fluffy! It was hard to get a good photograph while they were still risen though.. By the time I found my cameras memory card the  delectable dessert was beginning to sink.. I took a only few clicks, because we were all in a rush to have them while they’re hot! There is a saying in french,  ” Le soufflé n’attend pas, on attend le soufflé “. It means, the soufflé doesn’t wait for us, It is WE who wait for the soufflé!. Which is absolutely on the mark, because we wait patiently outside that oven door, till it’s just right to take it out… and then the soufflé, paying no heed to all our anxious waiting, starts to go down just as quickly as  you can say “I love  Soufflé” . Hmph:) ! Oh well, I tell you it’s still worth it!

Steps to making a good Soufflé.  Warm up the milk. Prepare the flavoring agent, juice, melted chocolate etc.. Whisk egg whites. They should be shiny and firm but never over whisked…
