Mini Chocolate Soufflés -- Tuesdays with Dorie


I know it's Wednesday and I'm a day late, but late is better than never, right? I just couldn't miss Dorie's Chocolate Soufflé, picked for TWD to try by Susan at She's Becoming DoughMessTic. A huge thank you to Susan for picking this recipe, which you can find here at her wonderful blog.


I halved the recipe and used four mini baking flower pots, I also cut down the baking time from 40 minutes (for a full recipe in one dish) to 18 minutes and it was perfect! I have to admit I was not that excited about this recipe at first, for starts, I just made Mini Fallen Chocolate Soufflé Cakes for another baking club, secondly I'm not usually a fan of desserts with so many eggs. I have to say this recipe completely changed my mind about soufflés and really knocked my socks off with how good it was.


My one change was to use semisweet chocolate instead of bittersweet -- personal preference. I cannot say how impressed I was by these, they were cute, fun, amazingly light, perfectly chocolaty, and delicious with powdered sugar and whipped cream. Who knew? Dorie, obviously!

out of the oven and sprinkled with powdered sugar, they fell quickly!

What a fun TWD pick! I'm so glad I made these, even if they were a little late :)

Yep I agree Dorie knew these would solve the whole souffle quandry many find themselves stewing about.
Your look so cute in the little pots. I'm sure your kids loved them.

Love the flower pots! The tag at the end of your post about making those chocolate malt cookies one year ago made me wish I had both desserts to nimble on right now!

Those are the cutest chocolate souffles in their flower pot ramekins! I think next time I'll switch out the bittersweet with semisweet chocolate too.
