Baileys Irish cream frozen souffle recipe


- 3 egg whites

- 2 oz sugar

- 3 egg yolks

- 2 oz sugar

- 1¼ cups whipping cream

- ¼ cup Bailey Irish Cream

- 2 teaspoons cocoa powder.


Whisk egg whites and sugar to stiff peaks. 

Whisk egg yolks and sugar in a bowl over warm water until they become creamy and attain a light yellow color. 

Whisk the cream to soft peaks. 


Add the Baileys to the egg yolks. 

Fold in the egg whites into the yolks. 

Fold in the whipped cream. 

Pour mixture into a mold - a coffee cup or ramequin.  If using a ramequin (like in the picture), wrap it with parchment paper before filling it.

Brush the paper with butter and it will stick to the porcelain.

Place in the freezer for 4-6 hours.

To serve, remove the parchment paper and dust it with cocoa powder.


For a different presentation, remove some soufflé with a small spoon or scoop and pour in some Bailey’s Irish Cream.
