  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • Butter to grease ramekins
  • Sugar for sprinkling in the ramekins
  • Pinch of cream of tartar


  1. Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large saucepan over low heat until the chocolate melts.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease 8, 3/4-cup ramekins with butter and then sprinkle with sugar.
  3. Remove the mixture from the heat and allow to cool to lukewarm before whisking in the egg yolks.
  4. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of cream of tartar until soft peaks form and then fold into the chocolate mixture in 4 additions.
  5. Spoon the soufflé mixture into the ramekins and place in the oven for 15 minutes.
