Individual Chocolate Souffle Cakes

"To serve four, use five teaspoons flour and double the remaining ingredients. Doubling the flour would make the base too heavy."

  • Preheat oven to 350.

  1. hmmm so good. I made mine low carb and sugar free. I used almond flour instead of flour, amond breeze unsweetened( which is an almond milk)instead of milk and 4 tbsp of xylitol in place of the sugar, with no dusting or sprinkling. very good thanks for sharing!
  2. "Flour" confused me, didn't know whether to use self-raising or plain so went for self-raising. Apart from that I followed the recipe exactly. The chocolate mixture just stuck to the pan and was a real chore to mix. The final product wasn't what I would describe as a souffle at all. It was dense and not sweet enough in my opinion, although my mum did enjoy it with a splash of cream.
  3. WOW... this was so easy to make and very low in calories too!!! I will make this again!
  4. This is the perfect guiltless chocolate fix. Yummy!


I grew up in the Midwest and from a Swedish family, so I love food. My grandmother doesn't normally measure when she cooks and I kind of picked that up from her. Most of my dishes can't be repeated due to this. I love experimenting!!
