I agree with another user as this recipe is most forgiving. How forgivinf? Check this out : not only have I never made souffle, I have never eaten it! Light and airy - great with coffee ice cream and chocolate syrup. I will be making this again! Thanks for the recipe!!



This souffle was great! I am a chocolate lover and this fudgy sauce really completed the dessert and there's no need to add more chocolate to the souffle itself! Make sure that the egg whites are at room temperature or they will not whip properly. Do not repeatedly open and close the oven door or the movement will cause the souffles to fall. I baked this recipe in 6 small ramakins filled almost to the top for 35 minutes. I recommend serving it like this -when the souffles are done, scoop a small "dent" out of the middle and pour chocolate sauce inside. After that, you could top it with a scoop of ice cream, drizzle the chocolate sauce on top and maybe sprinkle some chocolate pieces, raspberries or strawberries on top. YUM!



I had never made a souffle in my life, but this turned out great I had run out of milk, so I substituted 1/4 water and 3/4 light cream. I used a high-quality cocoa, which made it super-chocolatey. It was gorgeous! It baked up beautifully in a round pyrex bowl. Great warm with ice cream. Individual servings can be reheated in the microwave.
