- 3 tbsp flour (plain)
- 250ml skimmed milk
- 200g cheddar cheese (reduced fat), shredded
- 1⁄2 tsp salt
- 1⁄4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 4 eggs, separated (whites from 4, yolks from 2)
In a small cup or bowl, mix together flour and 3 tablespoons milk until smooth. Pour remaining milk into a large saucepan over low heat. Whisk in flour mixture and cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and stir in cheddar cheese, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and cayenne pepper. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool.
Preheat oven to 180°C / 160°C (fan oven) / 350°F / Gas Mark 4. Whisk egg yolks into the cooled cheese mixture until well combined.
In a large glass or metal bowl, whip all 4 egg whites until foamy. Add remaining 1⁄4 teaspoon salt and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Stir 1 of the egg whites into the cheese mixture. Gently fold in remaining egg whites with a rubber spatula until just combined. Transfer mixture to an ungreased souffle dish.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the souffle is puffed and cooked through. Serve immediately.
