Recipe for Greek Style Vanilla Souffle
Comments Off on Recipe for Greek Style Vanilla Souffle
Although souffles are traditionally French, but they are also popular in Greece with their own twist. This one is made with vanilla, which is a popular ingredient to use in baking in Greece.
Greek Style Vanilla Souffle (Souffle Vanilias) Ingredients:
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk
- 5 large eggs, yokes and whites separated
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
How to Bake Souffle Vanilias:
Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Melt the butter and transfer it to a large bowl. Slowly add the flour and form the mixture into a paste. Add the sugar and milk to a large saucepan and heat over medium-low and heat until it is just about to boil.
Remove from the heat and slowly whisk into the bowl with the flour. Transfer the mixture back to the saucepan and heat for a minute or two over low heat while stirring. The mixture should thicken.
Remove from heat after it gets thick and let it cool slightly for about ten minutes. While it is cooling, beat the egg yokes and vanilla extract in another bowl using an electric mixer. Beat the egg yoke mixture into the cream mixture once its smooth. Beat the egg whites in a large bowl until stiff peak forms. Fold the whites into the other mixture. Transfer to a buttered souffle pan and bake for about 20 minutes.
