This featherlight soufflé contains no flour, so it is both more chocolatey and more delicate than most others and should be served immediately. Cook it in a large soufflé dish or individual ones; just take care not to fill the dishes more than two-thirds full and adjust the cooking time as necessary.
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 oz unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
3 egg yolks
5 egg whites
Confectioners' sugar, optional
Chocolate Souffle Recipe at
Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F. Brush the melted butter on the bottom and sides of a soufflé dish 7 1/2 inches in diameter and 4 inches deep.

Place the prepared soufflé dish in a refrigerator for about 2 minutes, then sprinkle the bottom and sides with the 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, coating evenly.

Place the chocolate in the top pan of a double boiler or in a heatproof bowl over (not touching) barely simmering water in a pan. Stir just until the chocolate melts, then remove it from the heat. Add 1/4 cup of the remaining granulated sugar, stir to combine, then whisk in the egg yolks. Remove from the heat and let cool.

Place the egg whites in a clean bowl and, using an electric mixer set on medium-high speed, beat the egg whites until they form stiff but moist peaks. Pour the remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar into the egg whites and continue to beat until the peaks are stiff and glossy.

Using a rubber spatula and working in several batches, carefully fold the egg whites into the melted chocolate until no streaks remain. Do not overmix. Pour the mixture into the prepared soufflé dish.

Bake until the top has risen and is firm to the touch, 20-25 minutes. Sift confectioners’ sugar lightly over the top, if desired, then serve at once.
