Crème soufflée au chocolat

A quick look around the chocolate and dessert section of blog appétit soon got my mouth watering... I chose the recipe for a chocolate soufflé, served with ice-cream.


100 gr of dark chocolate
30 g of cocoa powder
60 gr butter
2 egg yolks
4 egg whites
100 gr sugar
50 gr icing sugar
1/4 lt vanilla ice cream

Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie. Add the butter, and smooth with a whisk. Powder the cocoa into the mix, then whisk in the egg yolks. Preheat the oven to 210° (th7). Whip the egg whites until firm, adding the sugar towards the end. Incorporate the egg white delicately into the chocolate mixture. Half-fill 4 individual cake tins with this mixture, and powder the icing sugar over the top. Bake for 8 minutes. Serve hot topped with a little ice cream.
