As Seen on Good Things Utah - Chocolate Souffle

Souffles can be… well… tricky. Be it the terrible reputation they have for falling at the drop of a feather, or the scolding your mother gave you if you spoke louder than a whisper when they were in the oven. Here’s the thing. There is NOTHING to be afraid of. Neither walking past the oven, nor yelling is going to cause a souffle to fall.

Part 1:

Part 2:

Chocolate Souffle
1 Tbs butter
2 Tbs sugar

3 Egg Whites
1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar
1/3 cup of powdered sugar

2 egg yolks
4 oz semi-sweet chocolate
2 Tbs butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Butter four 7oz ramekins and then coat the inside with sugar. Place in refrigerator.

Melt chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring until completely melted. Remove from heat and whisk in egg yolks. Return the chocolate mixture to the stove and heat over low heat, taking care not burn the chocolate.

In a clean bowl, combine egg whites and cream of tarter. Whip until soft peaks form. Add powdered sugar to the egg whites and continue to whip until hard peaks form.

Divide the egg whites into 4 portions, and gently fold the egg whites into the melted chocolate, taking care not to stir the mixture (only fold).

Fill each ramekin two-thirds of the way with the mixture, and put in the oven. Set your timer for 8 minutes.

Once 8 minutes have elapsed, reduce the oven temp to 350 degrees and cook for another 5-6 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 to 10 minutes, and eat ASAP.

For a fun variation, insert a small square of dark chocolate into the center of the souffle right as it comes out of the oven. Your souffle will turn into a delicious molten chocolate souffle.
