Method

Step 1  Preheat oven to 190°C

Step 2  Prepare a soufflé case, (rub butter inside a deep ovenproof dish). 

Step 3  Melt butter in pan over a medium heat until foaming. Cook flour, stirring, for 2 minutes or until it bubbles and comes away from the side stir in flour, 

Step 4  Remove from heat. Gradually whisk in half the milk until mixture is smooth. Gradually whisk in remaining milk until smooth and combined.

Step 5  Whisk over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until sauce boils and thickens. Add St. Killian Camembert and stir until the cheese melts and mixture is smooth.

Step 6  Remove the saucepan from heat. Quickly whisk in the egg yolks until well combined and add salt and a little cayenne pepper. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Use an electric beater to beat the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until firm peaks form. Be careful not to overbeat the egg whites.

Step 7  Add one-third of egg white to cheesy mixture. Use a large metal spoon to fold. Repeat, in two more batches, with the remaining egg white.

Step 8  Spoon into prepared dish. Run your finger around the inside rim of the dish. Place on preheated baking tray. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.
