Chocolate Orange Soufflé

Yield:  4


  • 100g of dark chocolate
  • 60mls of double cream
  • Zest of half an orange, finely grated
  • 2 teaspoons of Cointreau
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ½ teaspoon of butter for greasing ramekins
  • 3 egg whites
  • Pinch of cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of powdered sugar ( for dusting)


  1. Melt the chocolate along with the cream in a bowl, over a saucepan of boiling water, over  a low heat on the stove.
  2. Once the chocolate has melted, add the orange zest and Cointreau.
  3. Take the sauce off the heat, and allow to cool slightly.
  4. As soon as the chocolate is tepid, add the egg yolks and stir until smooth.
  5. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F.
  6. Butter  4 ramekins with a little butter.
  7. Beat the egg whites in a medium bowl until soft peaks form.
  8. Add the cream of tartar and the sugar, and beat until you have firm peaks.

  10. Then, gently fold in the remaining whites.
  11. Spoon the mixture into the buttered ramekins.
  12. Bake for about 12-15 minutes. The soufflés should be well risen, but with a bit of a wobble in the center.

  14. Serve immediately, with some whipped cream or vanilla ice-cream.
