Souffles are not an item that can be prebaked and hold up! They must be done to order. That's why they are often a "specialty of the house" and must be ordered when the diner sits down for the meal.

If you want to do an unbaked "frozen" souffle (not really a souffle, but a mousse-type dessert in a souffle dish with a collar) those can be done ahead and frozen, but they are not baked.

Welcome to DC. I haven't baked a souffle beforehand, but I saved this one to give a try when I get around to it.

According to the directions, they can go from the freezer (if desired) to the oven. Not sure if you will get the poof/puff of an actual souffle, but if you want to give it a go to save time...

This one 'peaked' my interest, as it looks like it may give you more volume and can be made ahead. (You need to register to see the entire recipe/notes, but might be worthwhile.)

Hi, Amy. I finally tried the chocolate and Grand Marnier souffle.The result was good. If you bake them in a water bath for the minimal amount of time, they will actually puff up when reheated in a microwave. if reheated for 30 seconds the insides remain runny.so again thanks!!!!!!

Oh yes.Actually it's kind of a large gingerbread house.I"ve been making them for three years now and last year I started selling them . Let me know what recipes you want and I'll tell you how I make them. Unfortuneately <I won't be able to give you exact amounts, because with greek food ,I basically do it by taste.That's how my mother in law taught me.
