Chocolate Soufflé

Soufflés may look like a restaurant-only dessert, but they are actually easy to make. Whip them up right after dinner and enjoy while they’re still warm from the oven.

Nutrition Profile: Low Sodium  

Serves 2

Prep Time 15 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 1/2 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 large egg, separated, plus 2 large egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting (optional)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Position rack in center of oven; preheat to 375°F. Lightly coat two 10-ounce ramekins with cooking spray; coat the insides of each with 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar.

Step 2

Place chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted, 1 to 2 minutes. (Alternatively, see "No Microwave?" below.)

Step 3

Whisk egg yolk and cream in a medium bowl until combined. Whisk in the chocolate until smooth, then whisk in flour and cinnamon until incorporated.

Step 4

Beat egg whites and salt in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Beat in the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar in four additions, until stiff, glossy peaks form.

Step 5

Using a rubber spatula, gently fold half the beaten whites into the chocolate mixture until fairly smooth; then gently fold this combined mixture back into the remaining egg whites until no white streaks remain. Divide between the prepared ramekins and place on a baking sheet. Bake until puffed and firm to the touch, 18 to 22 minutes. Dust with confectioners’ sugar, if desired. Serve immediately.
