What makes soufflé so light?

The name soufflé comes from the French verb souffler, this means to puff up. Soufflé is a light, fluffy baked dish made with stiffly beaten egg whites folded into a sauce that has cooled and then baked. It is the egg whites that expand, making the souffle rise.

the oven temperature

The key for the soufflé to turn out perfectly is the oven temperature. If the oven temperature is too low, it will not rise properly.

Then again, if the temperature is too high, the soufflé turns into a popover with big air pockets in the middle. For best results, the oven temperature should be 350 F.
