Would you like to prepare a perfect chocolate soufflé? Here it is the recipe that allows you to prepare a chocolate treat to share with who you want...
Dark chocolate is involved in this recipe instead of cocoa powder. Together with butter, potato starch, flour and eggs, this yummy and antique raw material becomes a very soft dessert to offer to your guests in every kind of occasion.
Actually, there is a very low amount of flour and potato starch because the whole dessert is based on the fat components of chocolate, eggs and butter that create a blaze of savour! :-P
In fact as some chefs and many grandmothers say, you find in a dish what you put in it: if you put good things in it, it will be good, if you put free-fat ingredients or whatever, you won't necessarily obtain a good taste.
But, at the end of a very hard day or when you would like to seal a moment of happiness, you mustn't care of calories! ;-)
The recipe has been sent by Chiara Epifanio from Tropea (Vibo Valentia) who wrote: "The result was unexpected....delicious...finger licking!"
If you go crazy for chocolate, I suggest the Sweet Ricotta Cheese and Custard Tart with Chocolate, the Chocolate Liqueur, the Hot Chocolate, the Milk-Free Hot Chocolate and the Profiteroles.
While if you're looking for chocolate cakes recipes, you can choose between many: Chocolate Cake, Chocolate and Whipping Cream Cake, Egg-Free Chocolate Cake, Soft Chocolate Cake, Caprese Cake and the Double Colour Cake.
- 200 g Dark Chocolate
- 110 g Butter
- 4 Eggs
- 100 g Sugar
- 40 g Potato Starch
- 15 g Flour "00"
- 30 g Amaretto (or another sweet liqueur according to your taste)

How to prepare the Chocolate Soufflé
Place the butterfly tool and add eggs and sugar. 3 Min. Speed 3. Put aside.
Remove the butterfly and melt chocolate and butter. 3 Min. 60°C Speed 3.
Add potato starch, flour, liqueur and then the mixture of eggs and sugar. 30 Sec. Speed 4.
Put this mixture in a baking pan and bake. 30 Min. 180°C.
I used a silicone pan but if you don't have it you may use a normal baking pan spread with butter and some grated amaretti biscuits.
If you want to sweeten your dessert I suggest to serve this soufflé with the Thermomix Custard flavoured with amaretto liqueur or whatever you've chosen.
The cake remains really soft so you may pay attention to the tooth-pick test!
