Ingredients for Chocolate Soufflé Recipe
Dark Chocolate grated 250 grams
Refined Flour 3/4 tablespoon
Refined flour (maida) 1/2 cup
Milk 1/2 cup
Castor sugar (caster sugar) 1 cup
Egg whites 4
Place the chocolate in a bowl and melt it in a microwave. Heat butter in a non stick pan, add refined flour and sauté lightly.
Add milk, little by little and mix well. Soufflé base is ready.
Remove melted chocolate from microwave. Turn off the heat and add melted chocolate to the soufflé base.
Mix well. Transfer into a bowl and set aside to cool. Add half the castor sugar and mix.
Preheat oven at 180° C. In another bowl, take egg whites and whip adding little of the remaining castor sugar from time to time.
Beat the eggs till soft peaks form. Add a little of the whipped egg whites to the chocolate and mix well.
Then add the remaining egg whites and mix well. Pour this mixture into greased soufflé moulds.
Bake in the preheated oven for 12-14 minutes, until you see the souffle gently rising up and creating a nice crease between the ramekin and the top. Decorate with berries or chocolate drizzle, serving it warm or chilled, depending on your preference.
