Our version of this quintessential favorite is uber-decadent and will add a beautiful finishing touch to any dinner party table. While this dessert is not a make ahead recipe, you can do some steps in advance to ensure it comes together effortlessly. Before your guests arrive, separate the eggs and measure out all the ingredients. As your guest mingle before dinner, prepare the egg mixture and place in the oven as everyone begins to gather around the table. About the time everyone is finished with the main dish, your souffle will be baked to perfection. Garnish with a dusting with powdered sugar for an elegant presentation.
