My favourite dessert souffle, this always brings out the oooohs and aaaahs from my guests when I serve it! Please feel free to use an orange liqueur substitute if you cannot find or afford the real thing.....it will not be quite the same - but you will still get the oooohs and aaaahs!!

Deliciously Fun! Light as air! I made this after seeing the Souffle class for zaar world tour III hosted by Chef Kate and Chia. I was surprised at how easy it was. A couple of tips I picked up in the class: You can make a foil collar, just make sure to spray it with non-stick spray first, use room temperature eggs, and use a knife to trace around the edge of the souffle dish before baking. I subbed Cointreau in place of the Grand Marnier and it added a very light flavor. A great recipe!
