Melt in the Middle Chocolate Soufflé

Updated on March 18, 2011

This delicious chocolate souffle is beautifully warm and rich, for true chocolate lovers only!


  • 200g (7oz) Dark Chocolate
  • 150g (5.2oz) Unsalted Butter (plus extra for greasing)
  • 6 eggs
  • 125g (4.5oz) Plain Flour
  • 175g (6oz) Caster Sugar


Butter six medium ramekins, or three large ones, and leave to one side. Cube the butter and chocolate, and melt together in a bowl over a pan of boiling water, stirring continuously. The mixture should become really glossy. Next break the eggs into a separate bowl, add the sugar and whisk together until its light and fluffy, sieve in the flour and fold together, then fold in the chocolate mixture. Don't beat the mixture as that will release all the air, fold gently to add air to the mixture.
Divide between the ramekins, you can then put them in the fridge if you are making them ahead of time, but bake right before serving. Bake in a pre-heated oven 180 degrees (160 if oven is fan assisted). Bake for 10-12 minutes (a little longer if they've been in the fridge) They should rise and form a crust on top, and still be runny in the middle.
Dust with a little icing sugar and serve with cream.

Enjoy! x

      One question - are your temperature notations in celsius? I am assuming because of your other measurements but want to be sure before I try this. ;)

      I used to work pastry in a restaurant and we made little cakes similar to these...they were the most popular dessert and so amazing!
