Easy cheese soufflé

    45 min

    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!
