Recipe Challenge: Day 20 – Chocolate Soufflé

Pin It

My very first Chocolate Soufflé. I’ve not only never made one, never tasted a soufflé either. This was a triple treat for me because this was also my birthday dessert! For years I’ve wanted to make one, never really came around to it though. So glad that I finally made it, because it was not only easy but tasted wonderfully.

 The kids only got one bite, the rest was mine!

Chocolate Souffles


2 tablespoons unsalted butted, plus more for greasing the ramekins
1 tablespoon sugar plus more for lining ramekins
1/2 cup chocolate syrup
1 large egg, plus 3 egg whites
Pinch of Cream of Tartar

Preheat oven for 400F. Butter the 6 ounce ramekins then sprinkle with sugar. Tip upside down and tap out the extra sugar. Transfer to a baking sheet and put in the freezer while making the batter.
Heat the syrup and the butter till butter melts. Let it cool. Whisk the egg yolk in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in the chocolate syrup until combined.
beat the egg whites with a mixer on med speed until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and beat until soft peaks form. Add 1 tablespoon sugar in while beating and beat until stiff peaks form. About 2 minutes.
Fold part of the egg white mixture into the chocolate mixture and combine. Add in the remaining egg whites until completely combined. Make sure there are no white streaks in the mixture. Divide batter among the four ramekins. Bake in the oven for about 18 minutes or until souffles are puffed and browned slightly around the edges.
Dust with either cocoa powder or white powdered sugar.  This recipe makes 4

Enjoy! Thank you all for the wonderful Birthday Wishes 🙂
