Gather 6 ingredients listed. Room temperature butter works best. Preheat oven to 425°.
I now have a 10" soufflé dish (straight sides) but for many years I just used a 10" glass pie plate and it worked great too!
Evenly butter sides & bottom of baking dish. This would be an extra teaspoon of butter besides what's in the recipe. I find a clean paper towel works great.
Mix all six ingredients into a mixing bowl.
Carefully place into 425° oven.
My recipe says bake 23-28 minutes at 425°. I set my oven at 20 minutes and decided on 3 more minutes and it was ready
It has risen quite a bit in 10 minutes. Molly is now a Snapguide celebrity dog because I've had her star in so many of them so now she expects to have a role. So here she guards the oven.
After about 15 minutes.... I'm so glad I have a window!
See how it "poofs" up?!!! It will fall a bit once it slightly cooks so have your guests seated and ready when you bring it over to the table!
Best way to cut is with a kitchen shears I've found.
I sprinkle generously with powdered sugar. (These are the hands of a husband eagerly dishing up his portion) It's best to serve immediately!
It's light and eggy!
Some people like to top with syrup or cinnamon & sugar. I just like lots of powdered sugar.
This LOOKS so much more difficult to make than it really is! It's super easy!
