Chocolate soufflé

Classic French fare. Great for a special dinner at home. It’s simpler than the results would suggest. This one will be a big hit. I hope you like it.

4 ounces dark chocolate (50-60 % cacao)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 pinch salt
4 tablespoons sugar plus more for coating dishes
6 eggs, separated
Butter for dishes

Preheat oven to 400.

Butter ramekin and coat with sugar and shake out excess.

Melt chocolate in 20-second bursts in microwave.

Stir in vanilla and salt and let cool for 10 minutes.

Separate eggs.

Whisk egg yolks and sugar into chocolate.

In a separate bowl, add egg whites and cream of tartar and whip until stiff peaks form.

Add 1/5 of egg whites to chocolate mixture and whisk.

In 3 parts fold remaining egg whites into chocolate – be gentle so as not to deflate.

Place in ramekins and place on lowest level shelf in the oven and walk away. Don’t open the oven.

Bake for 14-17 minutes (you can look through the door).

Remove from oven and top with powdered sugar and serve with ice cream or berries. Serve warm.
