WOW!!! Kelly this is yummy. I have never made a sweet omelette before let alone a souffle one. I cut the recipe by half and I kind of thought it might not work, but it did I just used a smaller skillet. I filled it with raspberry jam and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. I will most definitely make this again. Thank you for posting. Made for ZWT#6 2010
I had never had or made a soufflÃ© before It was fun watching it become puffy. I liked the flavour of this sweet dish with the lemon which I had for breakfast narrowing it down to an omelette for 1. I used sea salt & a blueberry preserve. I would recommend this for someone wanting to try soufflÃ©s for the first time. Thanks Kellychris. Made for ZWT6 German/Benelux region for The Ya Ya Cookerhood.
