  • Transfer mixture to souffle dish. Bake 1 to 1 ½ hours (60 to 90 minutes) or until center of souffle is mostly set. Some jiggling is okay. Note: if souffle seems to be browning too quickly, loosely cover it with foil after the first 30 minutes. Be very careful not to let foil touch surface of souffle.
