  1. This recipe is incomplete. What happened to the butter and vanilla? I looked up other soufflé recipe to get the basic idea of how to make this

  2. I’m guessing “sour cream” was supposed to be heavy cream? Also, 100 g of sugar on 3 eggs?? I know this is usually to taste, but come on… In any case, one of the most poorly written recipes I’ve ever stumbled upon. Disappointing.

  3. I tried it! It was good, but I had to guess during the preparation….. to bad because it has potentials. If you re-write it and correct the mistakes it would be a killer soufflé .

    This you should change: You called for sour cream then say to put the creme Fraiche. Include the vanilla . Specify the actual corn starch amount… among other things.

    Good Luck.
