Chocolate souffle

Making a souffle doesn’t have to be impossibly hard and this easy to make recipe is a must for any chocolate lover.  These chocolatey melt-in-the-mouth souffles are dark and intense in flavour, yet light as a feather and silky in texture.

Separately, add water and prosouffle to the KitchenAid bowl and mix together.
Place the bowl onto the kitchen aid with the whisk attachment and whisk to a meringue adding the sugar in three stages.
Add the cocoa to the melted chocolate.

Add half of the meringue to the chocolate mixture and stir vigorously with a whisk, achieving a texture of gingerbread dough.
Add the second half of the meringue carefully integrating with a silicone spatula.
Transfer the mixture to a piping bag.
Grease the mould with release agent. It is very important that the mould is round and with straight walls so that the souffle rises evenly.
Fill the moulds completely with the mixture.
Flatten the surface with a palette knife until flat.

Bake for about 6 minutes until the souffle has risen.
