My First Chocolate Souffle

Last night I decided to utilize the souffle dish that has been sitting in my cupboards for the past 7 years. I found a chocolate souffle recipe in my good old Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook. It looked easy enough, so I gave it a whirl.

The first thing you do is wrap foil around the dish. Have around 2 inches above the rim.

Next, butter the dish & foil and sprinkle with sugar.

In a sauce pan melt 2 Tbsp of butter. Stir in 3 Tbsp of flour. It'll clump up pretty quickly. Pour in 3/4 cup of milk and stir until it's thick and bubbly.

Add 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Stir until melted, remove from heat.

In a bowl, beat 4 egg yolks. Gradually add the chocolate mixture to the eggs. Do it slowly so that the eggs don't cook from the heat.

Next you want to beat 4 egg whites until soft peaks form. Then add 1/4 cup of sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.

Now take about a cup of the egg whites and fold them into the chocolate mix.

Then take that and fold it into the rest of the egg whites.  It'll look something like this:

Pour it into the souffle dish.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Be still, my heart.

Now eat it!!


  1. I wonder if this would work with almond milk? I can't have dairy and this looks amazing!

  2. Hmmm....Wonder if I should try this? I bet it would be amazing with a raspberry sauce!
