Chocolate Souffle | Easy Recipe Alexander's Skipton

 

INGREDIENTS

42g butter

24g sugar

85g plain chocolate

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

Sifted icing sugar for dusting

 

METHOD

  1. Lightly butter two 8 ounce ramekins
  2. Break the chocolate into pieces and melt with the remaining butter in a large bowl, over a pan of simmering water. Once melted, remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract.
  3. Seperate the egg yolks from the whites and beat the yolks into your mixture until smooth. Make sure you save the whites, you’ll need those next!
  4. In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites in with the sugar until stiff peaks form. Spoon into the ramekins.
  5. Place on a hot baking tray in an oven preheated to 190 C/gas mark 5 for 20 minutes, or until the soufflés are well-risen and firm. Dust with icing sugar and serve immediately.
