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!


Serves: 6 

  • 30g butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 250ml milk
  • 200g grated Gruyere cheese
  • 3 eggs, separated

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. 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.
  3. Add the grated Gruyere, and cook on low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the beaten yolks to the mixture.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff then gradually add them to the cheese mixture.
  5. Butter a large soufflé dish, add the mixture then bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes
  6. Serve immediately as the soufflé might collapse if you wait for too long.
