UK Cuisine   Chocolate Soufflé Recipe

Place a pan ½ full with water on the hob and bring to a rolling boil. Place a bowl on the top (ensuring that no water will spill into the bowl). Break up the chocolate into pieces and place in the bowl, until the chocolate melts. When chocolate melted add butter in small pieces and stir continuously with a wooden spoon. Keep stirring until mixture takes on a highly glazed appearance. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Beat the eggs and add the sugar a little at a time until fully integrated. Then mix together the chocolate and egg mixture.Grease 8 ramekin dishes and dust with the flour. Pour the mixture equally into the ramekins. Tap the side of the ramekin dishes to ‘drop’ the mixture. Place ramekin dishes into oven pre heated to 180 degrees for exactly 9 minutes. Remove after 9 minutes and tip out onto serving bowls, take care not to burst soufflé.

Serve hot with thick cream.
