Yet another hot and sunny weekend in Dubai (starting to get a bit too hot, but oh well), and another Fiesta Friday with our Fantastic hostess Angie 🙂 (and also co-hostess Saucy from Saucy Gander and Sir Johnny from Flours n Dainty buns and Kitschnflavours !!)

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 300g of milk
  • 20g of plain flour/all purpose flour
  • 300g of dark chocolate (70% cacao)
  • 3 medium egg yolks
  • 6 eggs white
  • 20g of white granulated sugar
  • Icing sugar for dusting

Procedure:

  1. Preheat the oven at 170C degrees.
  2. Grease 4 ramekins and set aside.
  3. Melt the chocolate in a Bain Marie (water bath).
  4. Boil the milk, when the milk is boiled remove from the stove.
  5. In a medium pan mix together the egg yolks and the flour, until it becomes creamy.
  6. Pour the hot milk into the mixture (egg yolks+flour) and whisk gently.
  7. Pour the melted chocolate and whisk until the chocolate is mixed completely with the cream and set aside.
  8. In another bowl whisk the eggs white and the sugar until frothy.
  9. With a spatula gently fold the egg whites into the mixture.
  10. Mix gently.
  11. Pour the cream into each ramequin with the mixture until the top.
  12. Bake for 30 minutes (please do not open the door of the oven).
  13. Remove from the oven and dust with icing sugar.
  14. The Souffle au chocolat is served hot.

Bon Appetit.

The Souffle au Chocolat is very fluffy in texture and the cacao brings bitterness to this delicate dessert.

PS: The hardest part wasn’t baking the Souffle, it was to run with ramekins to take pictures before it collapses (to anyone who tries this recipe, you will know exactly what I’m talking about).

PSS: This is my 100th Post 😀

    • Merci Darya, c’est super simple a faire et leger comme tout. Le plus difficile c’etait de prendre des photos avant que mes petits souffles ne tombent, il fallait me voir courir dans la cuisine 😀

    • Thank you so much for your nice comment, Sonal 🙂 This recipe is very simple to prepare. I suggest you to buy a good quality of chocolate it makes a huge difference to the Souffle.
      Linda 🙂

    • Thank you so much Nancy 🙂 Souffle’s aren’t too hard to make (and personally I prefer lemon souffles, but my mad-about-chocolate family had a majority for choc .. ). Definitely a great treat to commemorate the milestone too!! 😀 Have a great weekend Nancy X

  8. Great recipe for your 100th post! I hear what you are saying about getting a picture in time. Baking/cooking is one thing but trying to get a good picture is not always easy. Good job as you took some nice pictures 🙂

  9. I love your pictures and chocolate soufflé is one of my super favourite foods in the world, these look so heavenly. Congratulations on your 100th post lots of love Xx

    • Thank you very much MB 🙂 Certainly the same in our household, and a nice treat to celebrate! Hope you try the recipe and let me know, and also a happy Fiesta Friday & a great weekend X

  10. Congratulations on your 100th post!! You have created a beautiful space here, and this chocolate souffle is no exception! I’m really impressed you managed to get these photos before the souffle cooled out of the oven! And the texture, wow, that last photo has me wanting some right now… Thank you for bringing this to Fiesta Friday!! 🙂

    • Thank you very much Saucy 🙂 Yes, it was quite the challenge, running with hot ramekins in one hand, and my camera in the other! Perfect summer recipe as it is so light in texture. Thanks for being our co-hostess and enjoy the rest of the weekend X

  11. Gorgeous dessert Linda! I’ve never been brave enough to make soufflé, but you’ve definitely inspired me to give it a go sometime soon! Congrats on the 100th post – what a milestone!

    • Thank you Jessica 🙂 I love souffle’s too (chocolate, and also cheese souffle’s!). Definitely some good vanilla ice cream is the way to accompany it with! Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  12. Hey Linda! Conrats on your 100th post!! Also, I didn’t know you lived in Dubai! How long have you been there for?

    Your soufflés look mouth-watering and I love your photos! Beautiful!

    • Thank you very much Julianna 🙂 Yes for seven years now (and counting!), and before I was your neighbor 😉 (in Canada). It was quite the challenge, running with hot ramekins in one hand, and my camera in the other, so I would have been satisfied with any picture! Enjoy the rest of your weekend X

  13. Many congrats on your 100th post! That aside, this is such a nice recipe. Partly as the whole egg is cooked, unlike chocolate moouse where the egg whites are simply folded in. As I can’t get really, really fresh eggs I won’t make it. This is perfect. As it sounds fairly easy. Aren’t any type of dessert, that puff up during baking, a slight disappointment when they deflate? I know I was aghast after making A Kentish Cherry Batter, similar to calfoutis. It looked amazing just baked! For about all of 5 minutes. 🙂 Tasted great, though.

    • Thank you very much 🙂 I am so flattered by your kind words. I am always in admiration of your work (and stunning pictures!). Once you do get a hold of fresh eggs do try it though! I have to agree with you on that, however if you eat it once it’s out of the oven, you will never be faced with that problem 😀 Have a great week.

  14. Oh wow…this is great and I like the little sizes, less intimidating as a soufflé goes. Ok, now I have three of your recipes in my bookmark! I really do, and I really will make them. Actually making the karantita late this afternoon!

  15. I’d like to add a candle on one of those soufflé…. congrats! they look great with the colourful bowls!
    P.s I bought “les têtes de violin” aujourd’hui, tu m’en avais parlée il a y quelques mois…. j’ai hate de les cuisiner!

    • Thank you for your nice words Margherita 🙂 Les tetes de violons, are extremely tender when they are cooked, (like green beans). They are perfect with fish like Sole or Bream and a sauce on the side. Regale toi 🙂

  16. Mmmm why are you doing this to me Tata! You know that I adore choclate ! Mabrouk for your 100th post Wish you more success! ❤

    • Tu m’as fait rire 😀 Le souffle est tres facile a faire, suis la recette et tu verras. N’oublie pas de me dire ce que tu en penses. Merci pour ton gentil mot. Gros bisous xxx
