Clara’s Lemon Lavender Soufflé

Today’s recipe is dedicated to THE Soufflé girl, Clara Oswald from Doctor Who. Although her soufflés never quite turned out as expected, she will forever be known as Soufflé Girl. I was a little leery of her when she first popped up on the scene but she has since proven herself. For that, I name this week’s recipe after her, Clara’s Lemon and Lavender Soufflé. Here’s hoping she’ll figure out how to make them eventually.

Clara’s Lemon and Lavender Souffle


4 Eggs (separated)
1 Extra Egg White
1/2 c. Coconut Milk
1 Lemon (zested and juiced)
1/4 c. Sugar
1 tsp. Dried Lavender
A Pinch of Salt

Makes 8 Small ramekin soufflés

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

In a food processor ground 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon dried lavender.

Whisk together egg yolks, zest, flour, and sugar. On a low heat, bring the coconut milk to a boil. Remove from the heat and slowly add it to the yolk mixture. Remember to whisk constantly so that the eggs don’t cook.

Once the milk is incorporated into the egg mixture, add the lemon juice and pinch of salt. Place the mixture back into a small saucepan and heat on low. Continuously stir until it becomes thick. Remove it from heat and set aside. Allow it to cool before folding in the eggs whites.

Whip four egg whites until they form soft peaks. When the yolk mixture has completely cooled, fold in the eggs whites. Pour the soufflé mixture to the top of the ramekins. Glide your finger over the edge of each ramekins so that soufflés rise.

Bake for about ten minutes, or until the soufflés rise and start to brown. Remove from heat and dust with confectioners sugar. Serve immediately so that the soufflés don’t fall.
