Cheddar and maple syrup soufflé crêpes

Breakfast and Brunch

cheddar and maple souffle crepes
4 portions


  • 250ml milk
  • 30g butter
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 70g all-purpose flour
  • 250g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 100ml maple syrup (preferably golden colour for its delicate flavour)
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Warm the milk and butter in a saucepan over a medium heat until the butter has melted.
  2. In a bowl, beat the egg yolks with the flour and maple syrup. Pour a little of the hot milk in to warm the mixture. Fully combine both mixtures, and simmer until it thickens. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  3. Using a mixer, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form.
  4. Add to the cooled milk mixture, along with the cheese. Fold the mixture to combine.
  5. Butter a non-stick pan and warm over a medium heat. Pour a ladle of the crepe mix and tilt the pan so the mixture evenly coats the surface.
  6. Let the crepe cook for about 45 seconds, fold in half and then cook for another 30 seconds. Repeat steps five and six to make all 4 crepes.
  7. Serve hot with a drizzle of maple syrup.

Enjoy the flavour juxtaposition of cheddar cheese and sweet maple in these fluffy soufflé crêpes.

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
