Coffee Souffle

Coffee Souffle


"A refreshingly cool dessert that is souffle and gelatin in one. Old recipe from my grandmother. When chilled, the gelatin will separate into its own layer. Serve with whipped topping."

  1. Combine gelatin and cold coffee in a small bowl; set aside for 5 minutes to soften. In a heat-proof bowl or the top of a double boiler, combine coffee mixture, milk, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and the egg yolks. Set the bowl over a pan of over simmering water. Stir until sugar is dissolved and gelatin has melted.
  2. Whisk in remaining 1/4 cup sugar, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and the egg yolks. Cook and stir until mixture is thick and creamy and coats the back of a metal spoon. Remove from heat.
  3. Whip the egg whites (with a pinch of salt, if desired) until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites and vanilla into slightly cooled custard. Pour into a serving dish or lightly greased mold and chill until set, at least 4 hours.

Pretty good. I think the brewed coffee should be rather strong for best flavour. Also, the custard never got *very* thick but it set fine. I think this makes 10 smallish servings or 8 moderate o...

did not turn out for me at all.

This had really, really good flavor but the recipe is kinda ambiguous. No way will this serve 10 people! I got 2 parfait glasses full & that's it. I couldn't get the coffee mixture to thicken up...

I was very dissappointed how this recipe turned out. Maybe I did something wrong as it turned out lumpy. The flavour was good though and I used a few sachets of Equal (artificial sweetner) inste...

Mine didn't turn out even close to what the picture looks like. It was really eggy and lumpy. I followed all of the directions and used the exact amount of ingredients specified.

First off, i would more call it a moose or something, not a souffle. Next time i will brewing the coffee stronger and doing 1 cup coffee, 1 cup milk, i think that will improve the consistency a ...
