Basic Corn Souffle Recipe
Got a Sweet toothe? You’re not the only one. But because your guests loved your meal, they might appreciate having a light dessert. A souffle is a light, fluffy, baked cake made with egg yolks and beaten egg whites combined with various other ingredients and served as a savory main dish or sweetened as a dessert.
The word souffle is the past participle of the French verb souffler which means “to blow up” or more loosely “puff up” — an apt description of what happens to this combination of custard and egg whites.
Every souffle is made from two basic components: a French crime patisserie base/flavoured cream sauce or egg whites beaten to a soft peak meringue.
Souffles can be made in containers of all shapes and sizes but it is traditional to make souffle in ramekins. These containers vary greatly in size, but are typically glazed white, flat-bottomed, round porcelain containers with unglazed bottoms and fluted exterior borders.
There are a number of variations on the souffle theme. One is an ice cream souffle, which combines a souffle with ice cream and either a fruit or a hot sauce.
