Twice Baked Cheese Souffle

I recently spent a lovely long weekend in Derbyshire to celebrate mine and Mr Riverside Senior’s Birthdays. Grammatically cumbersome and possibly wrong, sorry.

As it was a special birthday, we cooked a very special three course meal for Mr Riverside Senior and I was in charge of starter and dessert.

As they went so well, I wanted to share the recipes with you. Both are recipes that once upon a time I wouldn’t have thought I was capable of and skipped past in books/online. No longer, since starting to cook more often, I am willing to take on every challenge and the success/failure that ensues.

My starter was twice baked cheese souffle

I used this great recipe: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/3028701/threecheese-souffls which has a step by step guide, but because of the horrendous calorie content and the fact that we were having three courses, I omitted the goats cheese.

I also adapted the recipe for 3 but because our ramekins weren’t quite 200ml we ended up with 3 and a runt – perfect taste taster for the chefs!

When they come out the oven the first time they look like proper puffy souffles, but quickly sink – don’t worry you are going to invert them and they will look pretty as ever.

If any of you are souffle virgins, this is the recipe to give in to, I thoroughly recommend it. If you try it let me know how yours turn out.

I was surprised the night before with this beautiful cake lovingly made by Mr Riverside Senior, his first sponge cake and a fabulous one it was too.

Surprise cakes are the best don’t you think?

  1. Coffee and walnut cake is my favourite, and that looks amazing. The cheese souffles look good too, I know what you mean about feeling more confident in the kitchen and giving things a go.
