Dark Chocolate Soufflé With Fresh Raspberries-8

A melt-in-the-mouth dark chocolate and raspberry soufflé is definitely a wonderful way to indulge during a romantic Valentine’s evening.
I know, making a soufflé for the first time can be a little bit scary, however it is quite a simple dessert to make, despite its reputation….Just remember to handle the soufflé with great care and serve it as soon as it comes out of the oven, otherwise this dessert will lose its lift.

Cooking tip. Grease and chill the soufflé dishes for at least 5 minutes before cooking, then grease again with a little butter before pouring in the soufflé mixture. This operation will prevent the soufflé sticking to the dishes during the cooking process.

    1. Thank you darling! It really is simpler than it seems, however, you have to be careful that all the ingredients are at room temperature, so that the mixture doesn’t change consistency during the preparation method…Other than that, it is quite easy! I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday! :-)))
