Always a beacon of light in the kitchen, Martha Stewart has been a go-to source of information for at-home chefs and creators for years. If you’ve ever browsed her TikTok page, you’ve gotten a glimpse at just how valuable she can be to our culinary experience. Whether you need tips for getting the pesky stench of garlic off your fingers or the right steps for rolling the perfect croissant, Martha Stewart is always going to set you up for success. 

With the Christmas holiday approaching, she is back again to clue us in on a fancy dessert tip that just might come in handy this year. For the soufflé lovers out there, Stewart’s TikTok video, aptly titled, “How to Eat a Souffle,” walks you through exactly that. A callback to her first-ever TikTok post, this is one of Stewart’s favorite tricks — and after giving it a try, it may become one of yours, too.

So what’s the trick? First, take your spoon and make a hole in the center of the soufflé, then pour the crème anglaise inside. As a final step, you’ll top it all off with a dollop of whipped cream. A simple hack with a delicious outcome. Who else would you trust to guide you down the path of fancy desserts and decadent foods? 

If you’re interested in a more traditional dessert for the holiday season, there are plenty of Martha Stewart classics to choose from. Her one-bowl chocolate cake is a great place to start if simplicity is what you’re hoping for, while her delicious no-bake cheesecake makes for the perfect follow-up to your family’s dinner.
