About this recipe:This souffle recipe is deceptive - it is actually very easy to make. Cooking a soufflé simply requires some time and attention as you will need to watch the soufflé whilst it's in the oven. Use Gruyere as stated, or try another cheese - Emmental also works well!
3 tablespoons flour
200g grated Gruyere cheese

Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter then add the flour. Stir until the mixture starts forming a ball then slowly stir in the milk.
Add the grated Gruyere, and cook on low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the beaten yolks to the mixture.
In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff then gradually add them to the cheese mixture.
Butter a large soufflé dish, add the mixture then bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes
Serve immediately as the soufflé might collapse if you wait for too long.
