A bout de Soufflé

Pistachio Souffle

And since, we’re a little Nigella crazy this weekend, we made Nigella’s ribs for mains and Nigella’s Pistachio Soufflé for dessert, yesterday. I followed the recipe to the ‘t’, and even included the square of Lindt Excellence, which is supposed to be a nice surprise for the guests. Oh yes, the nice photo is taken by YW.

Also bought a whole bunch of Angka prawns — I think the name translates literally to red legs — which we seasoned with Tequila and I dunno what else.

The souffles were very yummy. One was definitely not enough.

souffles are meant to rise well above the ramekin’s edges, not under it.
maybe the oven is not of the right temperature or the egg whites are beaten long enough?
good luck on ur next attempt

Thanks for your enlightening comment. They’re a little flat cos I put three servings into four ramekins.
