How to make it

  • MethodFor the dishes
  • Preheat oven to 180C/gas 4.
  • Brush 8 ramekins (8cm in width, 4-5cm in height) with the softened butter in upward strokes, from the base to the rim.
  • Chill the dishes for 5 minutes, then as an insurance policy so the souffe doesn't stick to the dish, apply a second coat as before.
  • Sprinkle a little grated chocolate into each dish, tilting and rolling the dishes around to line them with an even layer of chocolate.
  • He also said one could sprinkle inside each dish with some sugar too
  • Cream patissiere:
  • slake the corn flour with a little of the milk, then gradually add the rest of the milk until you have a smooth mixture.
  • Pour into a small pan, and slowly bring to the boil, stirring continuously.
  • Boil for 30 seconds then off the heat, add the chocolate and whisk until smooth.
  • Beat in the egg yolks until smooth before transferring to a bowl to cool.
  • Egg white mixture
  • In an artisan mixer, whisk the egg whites to soft peaks.
  • Gradually start to add in the sugar, whisking well in between each addition.
  • Once all the sugar has been added, continue to whisk until you have a thick and glossy mixture.
  • Add one third of the egg whites into the chocolate cream patisserie mixture and mix well.
  • Now add in the remaining egg white and gently fold into the mix.
  • Do not over work the mixture as it will become too hard and stiff.
  • Divide the mixture between the ramekins.
  • Level the surface with a palate knife then bake for 6-8 minutes, or until well risen and with a slightly wobbly centre.
  • Remove from the oven and dust with the remaining cocoa powder.
  • Serve immediately with a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream.
  • When cut into, these will have a chocolate runny center!
