Soufflé top tips for your range cooker

Community member CB e-mailed us to ask for our soufflé tips!

"I’d like to try a soufflé in my four oven aga range cooker. Do you recommend baking them on the bottom of roasting oven with a cold plain shelf on top runners?  Or would you suggest baking in the baking oven.'

We turned to the pages of Sarah Whitaker's cookbooks & scanned her numerous Soufflé recipes for consistencies to compile this list of tips..


  • Relax - any soufflé recipe requires a soft hand and a gentle fold!
  • Have your serving plates prepared - so you can serve quickly!
  • Equip yourself with a tray that fits directly on your oven runners, and a set of ramekins. 
  • Butter your ramekins! Have a pastry brush to hand to brush all your pots as you melt the butter at the start of the process. 
  • You can keep your mix in the fridge for 24Hrs in advance, but you must be ready to eat as soon as you cook - no hardship there!
  • You can even freeze them in your ramekins and tray, cook 20 mins from frozen. 
  • I prefer to use a metal spoon for folding, I find the edge is better for folding delicate egg whites - that's my tip!
  • Enjoy! YUM


You can find Sarah's recipe from her 'Relaxed Aga Cooking'book on the Recipeand Christmas Inspiration pages of our website.

Sarah has written a set of very comprehensive and friendly cookbooks, packed with tasty recipes, tried and tested for range cooker cookery success. With all her soufflé recipes, sweet and savoury alike, she recommends a half roaster tray, fits on runners, with a set of ramekins.
