DIRECTIONS

  • Brush a 5-cup souffle dish with melted butter; dust with brown sugar. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • In a medium saucepan, bring ¾ cup of the milk and the vanilla to the boil over medium heat. Remove and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, blend the cornstarch and the remaining ¼ cup milk until smooth. Add ¼ cup of the sugar, 2 of the yolks and salt and stir until smooth. Gradually whisk this mixture into the warm milk.
  • Cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until thick, 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool, about 10 minutes. Beat in remaining 4 yolks, one at a time. Sift flour over mixture in two batches, mixing well.
  • Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in liqueur and zest. Scrape custard into a bowl and set aside to cool.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, beat whites until soft peaks form. Slowly add remaining ¼ cup sugar and beat until firm peaks form. Fold whites into cooled custard.
  • Transfer to soufflé dish and bake for 20 minutes, until puffed and browned on top. Dust top with icing sugar and serve immediately (a soufflé waits for no one!).
