A souffle is a dish

A souffle is a dish characterized by its raised appearance and light, fluffy texture when it is baked. The name is derived from the French word meaning "to blow up." 
Small, individual soufflé dishes are often called ramekins .
A souffle can be a savory or a sweet dish, served as 

a main course or a dessert. A soufflé is an egg-based dish that holds its "puffed" structure by the presence of hot trapped air.
Soufflés can be made in containers of all shapes and sizes.
The most common type of soufflé is made with chocolate.
Chocolate mousse can be prepared as an alternative dish to chocolate soufflé. The main difference is that mousse is not cooked, whereas a soufflé is baked. 

A cheese quiche is another alternative to a cheese soufflé.
One is an ice cream soufflé, which combines a soufflé with ice cream and either a fruit or a hot sauce.
