This recipe is taken from Delia Smith’s Complete Cookery Course and Delia Smith’s Complete Illustrated Cookery Course.
First of all, whisk the egg whites until they stand up in soft peaks then in a separate bowl add the lemon zest and lemon juice to the egg yolks, together with the sugar, and whisk until the mixture is creamy. Now start to melt the butter in the frying pan.
Then using a metal spoon lightly and quickly fold the whites into the yolks. Now pour the lot on to the foaming butter, then after about 10 seconds, place the pan under the grill, so that the top can brown nicely.
Serve immediately straight from the pan. If you like to make it slightly more spectacular you can warm a small ladle or a small saucepan and pour brandy into it. Set light to the brandy using a long match, then pour the flaming brandy all over the soufflé.

Another souffle recipe that is perfect for entertaining as it doesn't collapse, allowing you time to get the dessert on to the table. The hot lemon curd is a revelation!
A truly impressive dessert, you can ring the changes and use different fruits according to the season. This is a lovely option for autumn and winter.
Don't let the word souffle put you off - these are very easy to make and can even be reheated or frozen! Serve them with Chilled Rum Sabayon for the finishing touch...
Light and lovely, these beautiful little souffles have the added attraction of being less likely to collapse than a standard version. Hand round chocolate sauce and cream for even more luxury (not to mention calories!)
