Problem-Solving Pointers for Souffles

Souffle did Not Rise

Egg whites were overbeaten. Beat just until they reach a stiff peak.

Ingredients weren't gently folded together.

The batter wasn't gently spooned into the dish. The oven wasn't preheated properly.

Souffle Overflowed the Dish

Next time, make a foil collar for the dish or use a larger dish.

Souffle Fell

A souffle will begin to fall shortly after it is removed from the oven. Plan the serving time well and have the guests waiting for the souffle.
