Sweetcorn Soufflé

Teamed with some hot buttered toast, this Sweetcorn  Soufflé makes for a nice light evening meal, alternatively for a healthier option serve with a crisp green salad.

Running a knife between the rim of the dish and the soufflé mixture before baking helps it rise evenly and if you want extra hight, tie a paper collar around the outside of the dish sticking about 5cm above the rim.

410g tin creamed sweetcorn
30ml flour

  6. Mix well and stir in the beaten egg yolks and season with salt and pepper.

  1. That is such a gorgeous souffle! I’m planning to attempt my first ever souffle this weekend. Hopefully it will turn out as beautiful as yours did!

    • How exciting – I remember being very nervous making soufflè for the first time for my husband after I received his granny’s hand written recipe from his Mom. We weren’t married at the time and I still wanted to make a good impression that I always know exactly what I am doing in the kitchen. The soufflè turned out perfectly. 🙂

Don't be shy, leave a reply. :-)
