Cheat's souffle with three cheeses

This is either a giant egg pancake or a giant doughy omelette, depending how you look at it. You can play with the cheeses as much as you want, but I like to keep things light by always including cottage cheese.

Ingredients

  • 30g butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 50g plain flour
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 225ml whole milk
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 200g cottage cheese
  • 350g Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • 75g cream cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4. Butter a 20 x 30cm baking dish.
  2. Mix together the flour, sugar and baking powder in a bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the beaten eggs, milk and a pinch of salt and pepper. Beat well.
  3. Stir in the cottage cheese and grated cheese. Dot small lumps of the cream cheese and butter over the egg mixture, and then fold in with a spoon.
  4. Pour into greased baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes until golden and set all the way through. This is ideal served with a light tomato and watercress salad.
