While they have a reputation for being difficult, they really aren’t. All it takes is a bit of timing.

“No confection symbolizes the holidays quite like gingerbread in its many forms, from edible houses to candy-studded gingerbread men to spiced loaves of cake-like bread. In Medieval England, the term gingerbread simply meant ‘preserved ginger’ and wasn’t applied to the desserts we are familiar with until the 15th century. The term is now broadly used to describe any type of sweet treat that combines ginger with honey, treacle or molasses. ~PBS”

Preheat the oven and have the souffle’s ready to go in individual ramekins. Just when you sit down to dinner, pop them into the oven. About 25 minutes later, they will be at their impressive best, puffy, warm and delicious. Be sure to serve right away!

Gingerbread Souffle Ingredients

Specific ingredient measurements are in the recipe card below, but here is a summary of what you’ll need:

  • Milk
  • Granulated sugar
  • All-purpose flour
  • Molasses
  • Butter
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend
  • Vanilla
  • Large eggs
  • Cream of tartar

How to Make Gingerbread Souffle

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 1: Prepare the Souffle

Whisk together milk, sugar, flour, and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and whisk in molasses, butter, pie spice and vanilla. Allow mixture to cool at least 15 minutes and then whisk in egg yolks.

Step 2: Prepare the Ramekins

Prepare 10 7-ounce ramekins, greasing with butter and sprinkling with sugar to coat (this will help the souffle rise), and shake out any excess.

Step 3: Beat the Egg Whites

Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of egg white mixture into the milk mixture until it’s well incorporated. Repeat with remaining 2/3 egg whites. Spoon batter into prepared ramekins, leaving a 3/4-inch headspace on each ramekin.

Step 4: Bake the Gingerbread Souffle

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until puffy and set. Garnish and serve immediately.

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

If you don’t have Pumpkin Pie Spice in your spice cabinet, it’s easy to make your own. Here’s my blend.

  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
