  1. Check 3 tablespoons butter
  2. Check 3 tablespoons sugar
  3. Check 2 teaspoons flour
  4. Check 1/4 cup milk
  5. Check 2 tablespoons orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier
  6. Check 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  7. Check 2 egg yolks
  8. Check 2 egg whites
  9. Check pinch salt
  10. Check pinch cream of tartar


  1. Heat oven to 375° F. Grease one 16-ounce or two 8-ounce ramekins with 1 tablespoon of butter. Coat with 1 tablespoon sugar, then tap out the excess. Set aside.
  2. Melt the remaining butter in a large saucepan over medium heat and whisk in the flour. Blend in the milk and cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce boils, 1 minute. Remove from heat. Blend in the liqueur and zest. Whisk in the egg yolks one at a time. Set aside. (Recipe can be made to this point up to 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
  3. Beat the egg whites, salt, cream of tartar, and remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar until stiff (but not dry) peaks form. Pour the sauce into the whites; gently fold together. Spoon into ramekins.
  4. Bake until puffed and browned, 40 minutes for a 16-ounce soufflé, 20 minutes for two smaller ones.
  5. Serve immediately with Custard Sauce: poke a small hole in the crust of the souffle and pour sauce inside.
