Substitutions and Variations

My dear coffee lovers, let us talk about the versatility of this coffee souffle recipe. Although I would recommend you to try out the original recipe just as it is, sometimes there are circumstances that require a few changes here and there for the better. So, without further ado, allow me to share with you some substitutions and variations that you can try.

If you do not have instant coffee on hand, worry not! You can always use brewed coffee that has been cooled down. Brewed coffee will definitely give a more pronounced flavor to your souffle with its richness and aroma. You can also experiment with different types of coffee, such as Lavazza Kafa Forest Ground Coffee, for example.

For those who are lactose intolerant or simply want a dairy-free option, you can substitute milk with any plant-based milk of your choice. Soy milk or almond milk works great in making souffles too! Similarly, if you are on a low-fat diet, low-fat milk or even skimmed milk can be used instead.

Another variation would be using chocolate instead of coffee in the recipe. You can easily convert this recipe into a decadent chocolate souffle by substituting the espresso coffee and instant coffee granules with melted chocolate morsels or cocoa powder.

For a twist on classic flavors, why not try adding cinnamon or praline extract to the mixture? These additions will give an extra layer of flavor to your dessert. For an adventurous option, you can mix mascarpone cream cheese into your egg yolk mixture to make a cappuccino souffle.

Remember to always play around with ingredients and experiment with flavors until you find your perfect match. A little tweak in ingredients could lead to a whole new world of taste sensations!

I hope these substitutions and variations inspire you to embark on a culinary journey of discovering new flavors and tastes while enjoying this splendid coffee souffle recipe.

Serving and Pairing

 Wake up and smell the coffee... souffle!

Coffee souffle is a gorgeous indulgence and can be served both hot or cold, depending on your preference. In my opinion, it’s best served fresh out of the oven while still warm with its lofty heights and golden brown exterior.

When serving, you can dust a little unsweetened cocoa powder or confectioner’s sugar over the top. A dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on the side complements the flavor and texture of this dessert perfectly. The sprinkle of lavender petals on top also adds a subtle floral touch that pairs well with coffee flavors.

A great way to pair coffee souffle is with a cup of freshly brewed espresso coffee to amplify the depth of the coffee flavor. A cup of steamed milk or cream also works wonderfully. For those who have a sweet tooth, pairing with cappuccino or latte for a beautifully creamy and flavorsome experience.

Alternatively, if you want to go for something more unconventional, try serving the souffle with caramel sauce or praline on top. This allows for differing flavors and textures and enhances the taste profile and visually appealing appearance.

Overall, when it comes to serving and pairing coffee souffle, it really comes down to personal preference. Whether you’re a fan of traditional accompaniments like whipped cream or seek more daring combinations, this dessert will not disappoint!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

 Every bite is a delightful explosion of coffee flavors!

Preparing a coffee souffle requires a bit of time and effort which can be reduced if some aspects of the dish are made in advance. The good news is that it is possible to make the coffee mixture for your coffee souffle ahead of time by following these steps: First, prepare the espresso and let it cool, then add cornstarch and mix well. Second, heat up milk in a saucepan over medium heat, add caster sugar, and stir until the sugar dissolves. Third, slowly pour hot milk into your coffee mixture while whisking continuously. Finally, add egg yolks to this mixture one at a time with continued whisking.

Once you have made your mixture for the coffee souffle, you can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. When ready to use, make sure to whisk again to incorporate all the ingredients equally.

If you have extra egg whites left over from making another recipe, you can also store them in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer until you’re ready to make your coffee souffle. Bring them back up to room temperature before using them.

It’s important to note that souffles should ideally be baked just before serving. However, if you want to prep your coffee souffles ahead of time or were unable to bake them all together due to oven space restrictions, they can be partially baked (cooked for about 10-12 minutes) then cooled completely before placing them in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

To reheat your refrigerated souffles, take them out at least 30 minutes before baking and let them come back up to room temperature. Place them into a preheated oven at 350°F (180°C) degree oven for 8-10 minutes or until warm through and crisp on the outside again.

Coffee souffles are best eaten fresh out of the oven when they’re at their tallest, lightest and most impressive. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days or in the fridge for up to 3 days after they are baked. It’s important to note you will lose the height of the souffles after storing so try to consume them as soon as possible.

Tips for Perfect Results

If you’re looking to make the perfect coffee souffle, there are a few tips that I would like to share with you. These tips will help ensure that your souffle rises beautifully and has the perfect texture.

Firstly, make sure you whisk your egg whites until stiff peaks form before folding them into the rest of the mixture. This will help to create a light and airy souffle. Be gentle when incorporating the egg whites, taking care not to overmix them.

Next, it’s essential to bake your souffle in a preheated oven. This will help it cook evenly and rise correctly. It’s also important not to open the oven door while your souffle is baking as this can cause it to deflate.

Another tip is to use a straight-sided ramekin or dish when baking your souffle. This will help the mixture rise evenly, creating a beautiful dome shape.

Don’t be tempted to open up the oven door before at least 15 minutes has passed. Opening up the oven during this time will cause drafts which can prevent the soufflé from rising.

To serve your coffee souffle beautifully, dust it with some icing sugar just before serving. This would give an impressive finishing touch and contrasting flavor.

By following these tips, you’ll be well on your way to creating a perfect coffee souffle every time!

Calories 174 kcal


  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup espresso coffee
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar, extra


  • Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F - place an oven tray in the oven and let this heat up too. When it comes to cooking your soufflés place them on this heated tray to ensure they maximise their exposure to heat, which will in turn, help them rise.
  • Prepare the moulds:.
  • Butter your moulds using upward strokes - this helps to guide your soufflé to the heavens. Then drop a spoonful of caster sugar into the mould, start tilting and turning the mould to ensure it's completely coated. Remove any excess sugar.
  • Prepare the custard:.
  • Place the milk, coffee and sugar into a small saucepan - stir to dissolve the sugar and let come to a near boil. Set to one side.
  • Place the butter in a saucepan over a gentle heat - allow to melt before adding the cornflour. Whisk until smooth before adding the milk mixture. Continue to whisk until thickened then remove from heat.
  • Allow to cool slightly before adding the egg yolks - it's most important to stir vigourously at this stage as you don't want to cook the eggs. You should have a thick glossy mixture.
  • Set this aside to cool.
  • Prepare the egg whites:.
  • Whisk the egg whites until soft peak forms then add the extra tablespoon of caster sugar - continue whisking until glossy.
  • Make the soufflé.
  • Place a quarter of the egg-white mixture into the cooled custard and stir well to slacken the mix. Add the remaining egg whites and gentle fold in trying to keep as much air in the mix as possible.
  • Spoon this into your moulds - filling about three-quarters full. Use your finger to create an indentation between the edge of the mould and the filling - this helps to concentrate the rise.
  • Place on the oven tray and cook for about 10 minutes - actually cooking time will depend on the size of the moulds used. Keep the oven light on so you can check on their progress without opening the door.
