This dark Chocolate Souffle has a light, springy exterior and a delicious molten center, pure chocolaty decadence from the inside out. When I developed the recipe, until we landed on the perfect formula, we added as much chocolate as we possibly could to each iteration. By cooking them in hot milk, we hydrate the starches, yielding a stable Chocolate Souffle with an incredibly soft interior and small bubble structure.
Sometimes you just need chocolate but not too sweet so you crave more chocolate. Sometimes you need souffle or a cake.
While this isn’t a typical souffle that you whip sugar and egg whites together, without the sugar, it’s kind of the same idea!
