Soufflé, You Say?

I have to say, when I was 8 years old, I didn't know what a soufflé was. I've never owned a ramekin and wouldn't have been able to point one out in a line-up of bakeware. But Sierra had taken this book out of the library and the recipe she wanted to try first was a soufflé. When you say you are unschooling and your daughter decides she wants to try to make a soufflé, you help her make a soufflé. Here is the play by play. (Note: Please ignore the mess. It was the first cool day we've had in a while and so I chose the optimum baking time over a neat kitchen.)

You might notice the souffles slowly sinking from this point on. I think she over-mixed when she folded in the egg whites. This is why I've never tried a soufflé. Too temperamental. I'm not patient with sensitive food.

Slightly concave, but very tasty. An excellent job for her first time!

Whateveer you called them, the picture of the suffle got my attention and made me want a taste.
Keep it up, Sierra. I love your experiments.

Well I certainly know why Sierra chose chocolate! Despite what the cooking channel says, I say taste trumps presentation any day. Any way, the souffles look great. Love, Grandma
