Prep time:  15 minutes
Cook time:18 minutes
Four 4 persons

Ingredients:

  • 200 gr bittersweet cooking chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon of cacao powder
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 6 egg whites
  • 5 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 small glass of liquid Cream
  • 40 gr. butter


Ustensils:

  • 4 Mediums ramekins
  • Stand or hand mixer
  • brush for cooking
  • 1 kitchen spatula
  • Preparation:

    1. Preheat oven to 410 degrees (210 C°)
    2. Butter the inside of the ramekins with softened butter by using the brush (the bottom, the sides from bottom to top, and the borders). Sprinkle with sugar, and shuttle upside down to take away the excess of sugar. Put aside in the fridge.
    3. Cut the chocolate into pieces, melt it slowly over simmering water (Take care, the chocolate must not cook, it would ruin your recipe). You can also put the liquid cream to liaise.
    4. In a large bowl, put the egg yolks, and 4 tablespoons of sugar. Beat it on high speed until the mixture whitens. Add the molten chocolate, the cacao powder and the liquid cream (if not already done). Blend completely and let cool down.
    5. Beat egg whites with a little bit of salt, and by adding gradually the remaining tablespoon of sugar until the egg whites hold stiff.
    6. With a kitchen spatula, put a small portion of the egg whites to the preparation to lighten it, and put gently the rest of the whites by using the spatula, with movements from  bottom to top until you obtain an homogeneous blend.
    7. Fill the ramequin almost until the borders.
    8. Bake for 18 minutes (it may also depends from your own oven). Never open the door during baking. The inside of the Soufflé must remain creamy.
    9. Dust with icing sugar and serve immediately.

    My personal touch:

    • Add 2 broad beans Tonka rasped to the preparation. It  will bring a nice spicy taste….A perfect fusion with the black chocolate.
    • Some guests who stayed recently in one of my apartments just mentioned that this spice was illegal in the United States, what a pity!!
