From Daryl:

For my regular foodie fans, I'm sharing a delicious orange soufflé recipe, in honor of the next book in the series, which comes out in July!  A SOUFFLÉ OF SUSPICION.

FYI, my head is exploding with all the PR that we authors have to do nowadays to promote a book.

Okay, I'm not that bad, but I'm definitely waking up early and going to bed late to get everything done. Coffee?

Yes, coffee, will go quite well with this lovely dessert. There's something so light and delicious about an orange soufflé. And it's easy to make. Give me an orange, some eggs,  and some sugar, and I can whip up a soufflé in minutes. I use Triple Sec in this recipe, but you could use any  of your favorite orange flavored liqueurs. Don't fret if the soufflé doesn't hold its shape for too long. It'll still taste great!

Soufflé à la Orange
(serves 1-3)

1 large orange
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 egg yolk
2 egg whites
2 tablespoons sugar + 2 teaspoons or more for sprinkling
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon Triple Sec
Powdered sugar


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Using a grater, grate the zest from the top part of the orange and reserve.

Separate the 2 eggs tossing out one of the yolks.  In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolk with 2 tablespoons sugar and the cornstarch until smooth. Whisk in the orange juice.

Place the mixture  saucepan and heat over medium heat while stirring constantly until it thickens, about 2 minutes .Remove from the heat and add the orange zest and Triple Sec. Let this mixture cool.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the egg whites to soft peaks.  Gradually add 2 teaspoons sugar and keep whisking to stiff peaks.   Fold the egg whites into the orange mixture and then pour the mixture into 1 large or 3 small ramekins.

Bake the small ramekins for 15 minutes or bake the large for 18-20 minutes until golden on top. Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve immediately. Soufflés fall quickly.
