I came across this delicious Mary Berry recipe a few months back and saved it for future dinner party dessert ideas.  Since it is Souffle Day, I thought I would share it with you!  Enjoy!

Serves:  4
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes
You will need
125g plain chocolate
2 tbsp water
300ml milk
45g butter, plus extra for greasing
45g plain flour
2–3 drops of vanilla extract
60g caster sugar
4 egg yolks
5 egg whites
Sifted icing sugar for dusting

 

Method

1. Break the chocolate into pieces and put into a small saucepan with the measured water and a few tablespoons of the milk. Heat gently, stirring, until the chocolate has melted. Add the remaining milk, stirring to blend.
2. Melt the butter in a pan, add the flour, and cook, stirring, for one minute. Remove from the heat and gradually add the chocolate and milk mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring, until the sauce has thickened. Stir in the vanilla extract and caster sugar, and leave to cool.
3. Beat the egg yolks into the cooled chocolate mixture. Lightly butter the individual soufflé dishes and set aside.
4. Whisk the egg whites until stiff but not dry. Stir one large spoonful of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture, then carefully fold in the remainder. Divide the mixture among four 300 ml soufflé dishes.
5. Place on a hot baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 190°C/gas mark 5 for 40 to 45 minutes until the soufflés are well risen and firm. Dust with sifted icing sugar. Serve the soufflés at once.
