Miss Walker’s Cheese Souffle

Here is a cheese souffle recipe by Miss Florence Victoria Walker.  I have never made a souffle and the instructions for this recipe written in a way that would suggest you should already know how to cook a souffle.  The recipe says to use a quick oven, which would be around 400 degrees or even 425 degrees.  I won’t even guess on how long this cheese souffle would take to cook.  If you decide to give this recipe a try, leave me a note in the comments and let me know what worked or didn’t work for you.

Recipe

Boil one cup of milk and stir into it one tablespoonful butter.  Pour upon this one-half teacupful of fine bread crumbs.  Soak a few minutes, then add one-half teacupful of grated cheese, the yolks of two eggs and a little salt.  Butter a souffle tin and tie around it buttered paper to make the sides higher.  Just before putting the souffle into the oven fold in the whites of three eggs, which have been beaten to a stiff froth.  Bake in a quick oven until the center is firm and serve immediately.
