cinnamon and white chocolate soufflé

January 22nd, 2012

If you guys learn one thing from this blog, I want it to be this: Soufflés are not hard!


I mean, I wouldn’t want to make them for a stadium full of people, and in a restaurant there are obviously kitchen-to-table service issues that are out of the cook’s control, but for just your family or a couple of friends, they’re actually a pretty simple dish. 

And holy cow, just wait until you see your guests’ faces when you whip up one of these babies!  Or one of these, or these, or these!  A perfect soufflé doesn’t have to rise six inches in the air, or even rise perfectly evenly — it can just be its slightly-imperfect self, and still absolutely delicious.

After this cinnamon-white-chocolate creation, I feel pretty satisfied with the sweet soufflé recipes on this site.  Now it’s time for some savory ones, huh?  YUM.

Cinnamon and White Chocolate Soufflé

1/2 cup sugar
6 ounces white chocolate, chopped
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla
3 large eggs, separated


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Butter and sugar four ramekins, as desired.  Beat egg whites with the sugar at medium speed, until they just hold stiff peaks.

Mix the white chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla and heavy cream and microwave for 30 seconds.  Let sit for another 30 seconds and stir until combined (if chocolate is not fully melted, microwave for an additional 15 seconds).  Allow to cool for another minute and then stir in the egg yolks.

Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg whites.  Fill 4 ramekins almost to the top.  Bake approximately 10-12 minutes, or until the soufflés are puffed and just set.  Serve immediately.

    This looks amazing! I never really think about souffles, but I’ll definitely be trying this out. White chocolate and cinnamon are two of my favorite flavors!

    I have to say I’m more of a savory souffle person (asparagus and cheese, please!) but these look amazing! I’ll have to try sometime 🙂

    Do you think I could use basic milk instead of heavy cream?

    I love your flavour combination of white chocolate and cinnamon. im going to give this a go this weekend. I made a similar souffle but put some lemon curd in the bottom of my ramekin – the combination of lemon and white chocolate was lovely. i would like to hear what you think! –
