If you want your souffle to be better in both taste and in appearance, there are some tips to keep in mind. Firstly, pay attention to the amount of mixture while pouring the mixture into souffle cups. Do not completely fill the cup with the mixture. Because when the dough rises, it takes up more space and the bowl overflows. So, it is enough to fill two-thirds of the cup. Secondly, never open the oven door while cooking. Because opening the oven causes air to enter your soufflé from outside, which negatively affects both its taste and shape.
