One of my favorite chocolate dessert recipes is this yummy chocolate soufflé recipe.
Light, creamy and delicious, this luscious chocolate recipe is surprisingly easy to make.
There are a few steps involved but you can see that none of them are difficult or overly time-consuming.
Chocolate Souffle Recipe
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 5 tablespoons grated plain chocolate
- 3 eggs, separated
- 1 egg white
- 1/4 cup sugar
- Confectioner's or powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Melt the butter in a pan and stir in the flour. Remove from the heat and stir in the milk. Return to heat and bring to a boil, stirring. Cook gently for 2 minutes, stirring all the time. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate and egg yolks.
Beat the egg whites until stiff. Beat in the sugar a little at a time. Fold the chocolate sauce into the egg whites.
Pour the mixture into a greased 2 1/4 pint soufflé dish. Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes until well risen and firm.
Serve immediately, dredged with confectioner's or powdered sugar.
- Make sure that your egg whites are beaten until they form stiff peaks, as that will help to ensure a nice high soufflé.
Timing is crucial with a soufflé as they really do need to be served as soon as they come out of the oven. Time out of the oven means a flatter soufflé.
Use the best quality chocolate that you can find, preferably a dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate. The dark chocolate not only gives a richer flavor, it’s healthier too.
Once you see how easy this chocolate soufflé recipe really is, you will put in on the menu often.
It’s a perfect dessert to top off a romantic dinner for two, but the ladies will thank you too if you serve this at your next girls night in.
