This recipe is an adaption of a dessert my mother and sister used to make and was called coffee souffle. It is totally not a souffle. My kids didn't like the coffee version so I tried orange. It was instantly approved. Eggland's Best eggs are the most nutritious and tasty there are. That is why I use them. They are also Gluten-free.

Make This Recipe


1 cup milk

2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin,(2 envelopes)
