Chocolate Soufflé!

Finally chocolate is here! Perfect after all the Halloween pumpkin sweets.

I always try to avoid chocolate because is "the easy way". Almost everyone loves chocolate so that is the first thing you want to use in a dessert when you have someone coming home, or taking to a dinner to a friend's house.

But sometimes your body screams chocolate through every single pore of it and you just need to dig into it.

And that is the moment when a nice chocolaty dessert is a perfect choice.

This is going to be amazingly tasty and good.

Of course, here you can see the Spanish Version .

Let's do it.

Chocolate Soufflé


· 90g of dark chocolate to melt
· 2 tbsp (30ml) of whipping cream
· 3 eggs
· 2 tbsp (25g) of sugar
· 1tbsp (50g) of cocoa powder
· 1 tbsp (15g) of soften butter
· A pinch of salt


You will need two or three ramekins, or any kind of pot you can pop into the oven. 

First thing, as always, preheat your oven to 200ºC (400ºF).

Prepare your ramekins. Brush the melted butter inside them and cover butter with the cocoa powder. Set them aside.

In a bowl, over a pot with shimmering water, melt the chocolate with the cream. Set that aside and let it cool a bit.

Not it's time for the eggs. Separate the whites and the yolks.

In a big bowl whip up the whites with the pinch of salt until they get soft picks.
In another bowl beat with a whisk the yolks with the sugar until pale and fluffy.
Once the chocolate has cool down a bit, mix it with the yolks, using the whisk too.

Now mix the whites into the chocolate and yolks mixture, in two times, and mixing with a spatula, make big movements, trying to keep most of the air inside the whites. This is your final mixture.

Pour it into the ramekins, and with your thumb, clean the edge of the ramekin. This will help them to rise while baking.

Place them in the middle rack of the oven for 10 to 15 minutes. The top must be set and the inside must be gooey and runny.

Try to eat it warm from the oven, just let it cool a bit, don't burn your mouth. Put an ice-cream ball of your favorite flavor in the middle of it and see how it melts and mixes with the chocolate.
It's going to be gorgeous.
