Soufflés may look like a restaurant-only dessert, but they are actually easy to make. Whip them up right after dinner and enjoy while they’re still warm from the oven.

Make Ahead Tip: Equipment: Two 10-ounce ramekins

ingredients

  • For Chocolate Soufflé:
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 1/2 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 large egg, separated, plus 2 large egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Confectioners’ sugar for dusting (optional)
  • Tip: No Microwave? Place chopped chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling water. Gently stir until almost melted. Remove from the heat and stir until the chocolate melts completely.

directions

Position a rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat two 10-ounce ramekins with cooking spray; coat the insides of each with 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar.

Place the chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted, 1-2 minutes. (Alternatively, see "No Microwave?" below).

Whisk the egg yolk and cream in a medium bowl until combined. Whisk in the chocolate until smooth, then whisk in the flour and cinnamon until incorporated.

Beat the egg whites and salt in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Beat in the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar in four additions, until stiff, glossy peaks form.

Using a rubber spatula, gently fold half the beaten whites into the chocolate mixture until fairly smooth; then gently fold this combined mixture back into the remaining egg whites until no white streaks remain. Divide between the prepared ramekins and place on a baking sheet. Bake until puffed and firm to the touch, 18-22 minutes. Dust with confectioners’ sugar, if desired. Serve immediately.
