Easy Chocolate Soufflé

 

For Chocolate Soufflé Day I quickly, and yes this is a very easy and quick recipe, had to make these lovely yummy soufflés as a dessert. Only 3 ingredients and a little butter to grease the ramekins and that’s it. Yes, yes I know the recipes that calls for double cream and whole milk and a ganache filling will win the prize BUT this version only needs the 3 ingredients I am sure all of us have in the kitchen at all times and no, you do not have to rush out and get cream and this and that :D. It’s chocolaty, it’s soufflé-y and it makes your tummy smile, what more can we ask for?

 

Serves: 6 (180ml Ramekins)

Ingredients:

100g Dark Chocolate

60g granulated Sugar

4 Egg whites

2 Egg yolks

Butter to grease the ramekins

 

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C.
  2. Grease the ramekins with the butter.
  3. Melt the dark chocolate in a bowl over a pan with warm water. (Double Boiler).
  4. Start whipping the egg whites and as it  thickens, slowly add the sugar. Keep on beating the whites until they form soft peaks.
  5. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the egg yolks.
  6. Add two tablespoons of the whipped egg whites to the melted chocolate and mix well.
  7. Add the rest of the egg whites and the egg yolks to the mixture and combine well.
  8. Spoon the batter into the ramekins and level with a spoon.
  9. Place the ramekins on a baking tray and bake for 20-22 minutes.
  10. Dust with icing sugar and serve.

 

Tip: Do use dark chocolate with  70% cocoa solids or more.

You can melt the chocolate in a microwave, just keep an eye on it for it can burn easily.

About The PaperCup Kitchen

Hi there everyone. I am Nelmarie, but please call me Nel. I, like so many people out there enjoy cooking and baking. Food makes me smile and it makes my heart beat faster. The only place where I know I fit just perfectly, is in the kitchen. I have also enrolled in a few cake decorating courses this year and I think I have met my true love....not mentioning my Hubby now :D. It took me 36 years to find out what I want to do with my life and I can now say the answer is rather simple...Bake and then decorating what I've baked. I have started PaperCup in 2011 whilst we were living in Moscow, Russia. Living the life of an Expat can sometimes get very lonely and the blog has not only brought the whole world into my kitchen but I have met so many gorgeous Foodie Friends. I am so happy that I have taken the plunge and started PaperCup. I am not a brilliant writer, I am not a brilliant chef, I am not a brilliant baker BUT I do invite you into my kitchen, take your shoes of, relax, have a bite to eat and let's have a chat. A little more about me: Nelmarie Rennison, married to Christopher for 6 years, together for 12. Two lovely kiddies, Nicholas 3 1/2 and Allegra just over a year. South African, lived in Russia for two years and now loving living in the UK. Diagnosed with MS in 2000 and never felt better :D I am just as grateful for dust blowing in my eyes as I am for Angels sitting on my shoulders. I love my family, my friends, my life and I am grateful for each new morning. Looking forward to get to know you better xx
