Category:  DESSERTS  - 


For 1 people ()


  • 1.5 cup(s) organic cane sugar
  • tablespoon(s) Cognac
  • 2 cup(s) milk
  • 2 teaspoon(s) Tahitian vanilla at least (or 1 scraped Tahitian vanilla bean)
  • 3 cup(s) whipping cream
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 pinch(es) salt
  • 1 handful(s) Valrhona cocoa powder for dusting

Frozen Vanilla Souffle from Camille Glen Directions

In an electric mixer, beat sugar and egg yolks until mixture has turned pale yellow and forms a ribbon.

Add milk and mix thoroughly.

Transfer mixture to saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it lightly coats a wood spoon. Do not allow mixture to boil.

Remove from heat and immediately strain custard into a cold stainless steel bowl.

Stir in salt, vanilla and refrigerate until cold (or put in freezer until cold).

When it is chilled, add the cream and cognac.

For a dramatic presentation, tie a parchment or foil collar around a 1 qt. soufflé dish and brush with vegetable oil. Spoon most of the mixture into the soufflé dish, filling it to the rim, and freeze until rather firm. Cover the remaining mixture and keep in refrigerator. When the souffle’ is firm, spoon the remaining mixture on top and allow it to freeze (at least 3-4 hours; overnight is fine). Before serving, remove collar and sprinkle with sieved cocoa powder. Serve with chocolate sauce - a divinely happy ending to a special holiday such as Christmas. (Note: If you don’t plan to use a collar on your 1 qt soufflé, you can use a larger 2 qt dish, but the presentation will not be as dramatic.)
