Orange souffle

Cooking time: 
10-15 minutes
Preparation time: 
15-30 minutes
  • Slightly Salted Butter, for greasing
  • 300ml Just Milk Semi-Skimmed
  • 4 tbsp Billingtons Golden Caster Sugar
  • 1 sugar cube
  • 1 large orange
  • 1 vanilla pod, split
  • 35g Wholemeal Plain Flour
  • 4 free-range eggs, separated
  • 4 tbsp Cointreau
  • Pyrex Ceramic Ramekins
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Grease the inside of Pyrex Ceramic Ramekins with butter and dust with caster sugar.
  2. Rub the sugar cube over the skin of the orange to extract the oil, then crush the sugar cube in a bowl.
  3. Grate the orange peel to remove the orange zest and set aside the zest for later.
  4. Pour the Just Milk into a pan, add the vanilla pod, the crushed sugar cube and the orange zest over a low heat. Bring to the boil, stirring occasionally, then remove from the heat. Leave to cool then remove the vanilla pod.
  5. Place the plain flour and the caster sugar into another pan and add a splash of the cooled vanilla and orange-infused milk. Place over a low heat and gradually stir in the remaining milk infusion, mixing well to avoid lumps. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and stir well for a couple of minutes until smooth and thickened.
  6. Whisk the egg yolks into the cooled sauce one at a time and add in the Cointreau.
  7. Place the egg whites into bowl and whisk until soft peaks form when the whisk is removed.
  8. Fold the whisked egg whites into the cooled sauce. Transfer the soufflé mixture to the prepared ramekins. Place the soufflé into the oven to bake for 10-15 minutes. Serve immediately at the table in the ramekins.
