  • 3 tablespoons butter 
  • 3 tablespoons sugar                    
  • 2 teaspoons flour
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • egg yolks
  • egg whites
  • pinch salt
  • pinch cream of tartar


  1. heat oven to 375° F. grease one 16-ounce or two 8-ounce ramekins with 1 tablespoon of butter. coat with 1 tablespoon sugar, then tap out the excess. set aside.
  2. melt the remaining butter in a large saucepan over medium heat and whisk in the flour. blend in the milk and cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce boils, 1 minute. remove from heat. blend in the liqueur and zest. whisk in the egg yolks one at a time. set aside. (recipe can be made to this point up to 1 day ahead. cover and refrigerate.)
  3. beat the egg whites, salt, cream of tartar, and remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar until stiff (but not dry) peaks form. pour the sauce into the whites; gently fold together. spoon into ramekins.
  4. bake until puffed and browned, 40 minutes for a 16-ounce soufflé, 20 minutes for two smaller ones.
  5. serve immediately with Custard Sauce: poke a small hole in the crust of the souffle and pour sauce inside.
