Daring Cooks: Lemon Soufflé

Dave and Linda from Monkeyshines in the Kitchen chose Soufflés as our November 2010 Daring Cooks’ Challenge! Dave and Linda provided two of their own delicious recipes plus a sinfully decadent chocolate soufflé recipe adapted from Gordon Ramsay’s recipe found at the BBC Good Food website.

For the November challenge, we could make either a savory or a sweet souffle, or both. I've made plenty of cheese souffles, so I chose a sweet one for a change, one that was lemon rather than the usual chocolate.

I made a roux-based sauce, adding sugar and eggs along with lemon zest, then folded in the beaten egg whites.

The end-result was an airy dessert with a delicate lemon flavor. It was everything I expected.

For the challenge recipes, head over to the Daring Kitchen. You'll also be able to see some of the amazing souffles that the other Daring Cooks prepared.

Airy, delicate, and lemon? Sounds like a recipe for dessert heaven. It looks wonderful.
