DIRECTIONS

  • Butter a soufflé dish and dust with sugar, tapping out excess.
  • Preheat oven to 430F.
  • Melt chocolate and stir until smooth.
  • Whisk butter into hot chocolate; add yolks and combine well.
  • Beat egg whites until frothy.
  • Beat in sugar gradually, and beat until whites hold stiff peaks.
  • Lighten chocolate mixture with ¼ of the whites, and then gently fold in remaining whites (a few white streaks may show, and this is not a problem).
  • Pour into prepared dish.
  • Put dish in slightly larger baking pan and add enough hot water in second pan to reach 1/3 up the side of the soufflé dish.
  • Bake for 40 minutes (center will be very soft).
  • Give a light dusting of icing sugar over top, bring to table immediately.
  • Serve with Whipped Cream.
