Chocolate Soufflé ❤️

  Soufflé is a classic dessert that is lighter, fluffier and easier to make than you think.


[Adapted and slightly modified from ]

Prep time: 20-30 mins
Cook time: 15-20 mins

Level: Intermediate 

Makes: Two 4oz 

• 1 ½ tbs butter
• 1 tbs cocoa powder
• 1 ½ oz semisweet/ bittersweet chocolate
• ¼ tsp vanilla extract
• 1 egg yolk
• 1 egg white
• 1 tbs sugar
• pinch salt
• pinch cream of tartar

1. Preheat oven to 375∘F/ 180∘C. Use ½ tablespoon of the butter to grease two 4oz ramekins. Coat the ramekins with the cocoa powder, tapping out the excess.
2. In a large bowl, over a pan of simmering water, melt the chocolate and remaining butter. Stir occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat and add the vanilla. Whisk in the yolk until smooth. Set aside.
3. In a clean bowl, beat the egg white with the sugar, salt and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the egg white mixture into the chocolate mixture. Spoon into the ramekins. 
4. Bake until puffed and set, about 15 to 20 minutes. Serve immediately with custard sauce or other preferred sauce.
