Soufflé INGREDIENTS (10 portions)
60g grated white chocolate
Whites of 8 eggs (egg whites should weigh 250g)
10ml Grand Marnier
In a bowl, mix the pastry cream and white chocolate together.
In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites. When frothed up add the sugar a little at a time while whisking. Whisk until stiff peaks form.
Mix a small amount of the meringue into the pastry cream and then fold in the rest of the meringue making sure you don’t over mix.
Pour into a prepped ramekin and scrape off the excess on the top making sure it’s even on the top and the sides are clean. This will make sure the soufflé rises evenly.
Place in an oven at 175°C for 12-15 minutes
Take out gently and enjoy.
