The key to making this light dessert? Fold gently without overmixing the batter.
Yield 16 souffles Prep Time 15 minutes Baking Time 10 to 15 minutes
1 cup bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 tablespoons butter plus additional for brushing
2 tablespoons flour
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar, plus additional for sprinkling
7 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
powdered sugar for garnish
1 Preheat oven to 375ºF. Brush souffle cups with butter then sprinkle all over with sugar. Set aside.
2 Melt chocolate and butter in a metal bowl over a pot of simmering water. Stir until melted and smooth. Mix in flour.
3 Beat egg yolks with half the amount of sugar until thick. Stir into chocolate and butter mixture. Set aside.
4 Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until it reaches soft peaks. Add the remaining 1/4 cup sugar a little at a time, beating until stiff. Fold in half of the stiff whites into the chocolate mixture. Add remaining whites, and fold and mix until well combined.
5 Use a small ladle to spoon into souffle dishes until three-fourths full. Run the end of your smallest finger or a small metal spatula around the inside edge of the souffle dish to help the souffle rise evenly.
6 Bake in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes until souffles puff and forms a crust on top but still jiggles in the center. Serve immediately dusted with powdered sugar on top.
