Chocolate Soufflé

This is the best recipe I've found for Chocolate Soufflé, its very light and chocolaty. The perfect dessert!


Crème pâtissière
20g cornflour
200ml milk
200g dark chocolate, grated
80g egg yolks

Egg white mixture
200g egg whites
150g caster sugar

For the dishes
25g unsalted butter
dark chocolate, finely grated
cocoa to decorate


Preheat oven to 180
°. Brush ramekins with butter and dust with grated chocolate. Slake the cornflour with a little milk then gradually add the rest of the milk until smooth. Bring to the boil, stirring, boil for 30 seconds then remove from the heat and add the chocolate and egg yolks and stir until smooth.

Whisk the egg whites and gradually add the sugar until you have a thick and glossy mixture. Add one third of the egg whites to the chocolate mixture then add the remaining egg white and gently fold together. Pour the mixture into ramekins and cook for about 12 minutes until well risen and slightly wobbly in the centre. Remove from the oven, dust with cocoa powder and serve immediately.
