Orange souffle

16 Feb

Although we do celebrate Valentine’s Day, I still used it as an excuse to make a special dessert – orange souffle 🙂

The photo isn’t great because the souffle is supposed to be eaten in the first 10 seconds, I didn’t have time to juggle the camera! They already started deflating in the photo.

Orange souffle
Adapted the recipe from here.

  1. Preheat oven to 175C. Grease 4 one-cup-size ramekins with butter and then coat with sugar. Set aside.
