    Serves: 2 

    • 25g caster sugar
    • 50g dark chocolate
    • 2 eggs
    • knob of softened butter and a little extra caster sugar to line the ramekins
    • some cocoa powder to dust

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Rub butter around the inside of the ramekins then add about 1 teaspoon of caster sugar and swirl it around so that the butter is covered with a thin layer of sugar. Throw away any sugar that hasn’t stuck.
    2. Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in a bowl over simmering water until it melts.
    3. Separate the eggs. Use a wooden spoon to mix the yolks with the caster sugar until the mixture becomes creamy. Stir the mix into the chocolate.
    4. Whisk the egg whites. It will take a few minutes until they become light and fluffy. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar and keep whisking until it is thick and shiny.
    5. Stir a spoonful of the whites into the bowl of chocolate and stir gently to loosen the mix. Carefully fold in the rest of the egg whites using a large metal spoon.
    6. Spoon the soufflé mix into the ramekins and bake for around 10 minutes when they should have risen but still have a little wobble in the middle. Take them out of the oven and put the ramekins onto a serving plate.
