  • 5 ounces bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Butter two large soufflé dishes. (I used small copper pots) Melt chocolate and butter in heavy medium saucepan over medium-low heat until smooth. Transfer to large bowl and let it cool.
  • Using electric mixer, beat egg whites to soft peaks. Gradually add sugar; beat until stiff but not dry
  • Whisk yolks, flour and vanilla into melted chocolate mixture. Fold in 1/3 of egg whites to lighten. Fold in remaining whites. 
  • Divide soufflé mixture evenly among soufflé dishes. Transfer to baking sheet. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.)
  • Bake soufflés until edges are set and a toothpick in the center comes out with wet batter attached, about 15 minutes if baked immediately or 20 minutes if refrigerated overnight.
