  • Cooking Method: Baking
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 15 minutes
  • Cuisine Type: French


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, for dusting
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease 4 ramekins with butter, then sprinkle with sugar to coat evenly.
  2. In a saucepan, warm the milk over medium heat until just simmering. Don’t let it boil – it’s milk, not a hot tub!
  3. Remove the saucepan from heat. Add the chopped chocolate, stirring until it’s melted and smooth. Chocolatey joy!
  4. In a medium bowl, mix the melted butter and flour until smooth. Add the chocolate milk mixture, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Stir until well combined.
  5. Separate the eggs, placing whites in one bowl and yolks in another. Mix the yolks into the chocolate mixture. It’s like a reunion!
  6. With a mixer, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1/4 cup of sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Can we say fluffy clouds?
  7. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the chocolate mixture. Be gentle – we want that air!
  8. Divide the mixture among the prepared ramekins. Place them on a baking sheet for easier handling.
  9. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the soufflés have risen and the tops are set. Watch the magic unfold in your oven!
  10. Serve immediately to get the full wow factor. Enjoy every fluffy bite!


Swap semisweet chocolate with dark chocolate for an extra kick. Want to amp up the flavor? Add a splash of liqueur like Grand Marnier or Kahlua. Garnish with powdered sugar, fresh berries, or a dollop of whipped cream for a picture-perfect finish. Pro tip: Serve right out of the oven – soufflés deflate faster than a popped balloon!
