If you don't have a double boiler, use a pot with 1 inch of simmering water, place a glass bowl over the top and make sure the water is not touching the bottom of the bowl.

You can fill the souffle mixture right up to the rim if you want to have it puff up above the top. This works best with 6 ounce ramekins.

You can refrigerate the mixture for up to 2 days. Place plastic wrap over the top to prevent a skin from forming.
