Ramekins for souffles?

Hello,
Does anyone know if souffles can be made in muffin tins or anything else besides ramekins?

Souffles

You can cook them in anything, but will have problems getting them out of it to serve them ASAP before they collapse if they are all in a 12 hole muffin tin? Or do you mean something else?
Confused.

Ramekins for souffles?

I haven't made them yet, but the recipe here says to use ramekins. I don't have ramekins though, so is there anything else that can be used? Would muffin tins work?

Souffles

Ramekins are just the size that is recommended & they have straight sides so they rise up evenly. You can use any container that will go in the oven, but if you want to serve them individually (as opposed to one big one that you spoon out) then just go for any containers that are individual because you can't turn a souffle out easily from a multi hole tin (they are too fluffy & unstable). Some teacups will do, if they are oven safe & the right size & you have enough that are all the same size/shape.

If you are making twice baked souffles, then it doesn't matter so much - as long as you can get them out of the little container easily so that the second bake can take place in a dish or on a tray. I use a small palette knife to slide around the edges before turning them into my palm & then I flip them the right way up & place in the final serving dish for the 2nd bake.

Does that help? If not, can you tell me what recipe you are doing?

Thanks Queen of Puds, I get what you mean now. I was talking about those individual muffin tins/cups. So I guess the scoping out would not really be a problem. Does the material matter? Like steel/metal instead of ramekin-material?

No doesn't seem to matter. I have done them in both & I can't say there was any difference for me.
