Ingredients for Twice-baked goats cheese souffles

  • Olive oil spray, to grease
  • 65g butter
  • 50g (1/3 cup) plain flour
  • 350ml milk

  • 2 x 120g pkts goats cheese
  • 400ml pouring cream
  • 70g (1 cup) finely grated parmesan

Twice-baked goats cheese souffles, How to Make

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray ten 125ml (1/2-cup) capacity ramekins with oil. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat until foaming. Add the flour and stir for 1-2 minutes or until the mixture bubbles and comes away from the side of the pan. Remove from heat. Gradually whisk in the milk until smooth. Stir over medium heat for 3 minutes or until the mixture boils and thickens. Remove from heat. Stir in nutmeg, egg yolks and 120g goats cheese. Stir until the cheese melts and the mixture is smooth.
  • Step 2
    Use an electric beater to beat the egg whites in a bowl until firm peaks form. Fold one-quarter of the egg white into the milk mixture. Gently fold in remaining egg white.
  • Step 3
    Divide the soufflé mixture evenly among the prepared ramekins. Place ramekins in a large deep baking dish. Add enough boiling water to the dish to come halfway up the sides of ramekins. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until puffed and golden. Set aside to cool slightly. Turn soufflés onto a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper.
  • Step 4
    Preheat oven to 200°C. Pour the cream over the souffles. Crumble over the remaining goats cheese and sprinkle with the parmesan. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until puffed and golden.
  • Step 5
    Divide the souffles among serving plates. Top with the figs, if desired, and rocket.

Notes:
Don’t be alarmed when your souffles deflate on cooling – they puff up again perfectly when baked the second time.
