I always have problem making the perfect soufflé. Despite numerous attempts, either by trying out different recipes or tweaking the baking method on my own, I still can't get it right.
Therefore, I was actually hesitant to take part in TWD this week, because the recipe chosen is chocolate soufflé. I knew that it would be too chocolatey for my liking and I was also not sure if I can produce something decent for photo-taking. But I still gave it a try this morning, and it was a complete disaster. I ended up with a burnt soufflé because I used a smaller ramekin and I had forgotten to reduce the baking time.
Determined to get it right, I whipped up another 1/4 batch of the batter after dinner and this time round, the soufflé was removed from the oven slightly after 20 minutes. I was quite disappointed to see the uneven top but at least it's edible.
I guess I still need more practices before I can declare soufflé as my best friend! But in the mean time, head over to Susan's blog if you want to give the recipe a try!
