- Preheat oven to 180*C (350* F) Fan.
- Prepare 6-8 individual soufflé ramekins (100-150 ml) by greasing them with butter and then sprinkling with granulated sugar.
- Place the couverture in a bowl.
- In a saucepan, add the water and cocoa powder. When it comes to a boil, remove from heat, stir with a fork until completely combined and pour over the couverture.
- Let it sit for ½ a minute and stir with a spatula until the couverture melts and is incorporated.
- Add the egg yolk and whisk until combined.
- Add the corn starch and whisk again.
- Beat the egg whites in a mixer until it becomes a nice meringue.
- You need to be extra careful with the following - Beat the eggs on their own until they stiffen and you have created a meringue. Then and only then do you add half of the icing sugar. Beat it until the mixture turns white. Then add the remaining icing sugar and beat until stiff peaks form, but be careful not to overbeat since it will then pass the “safe” point and turn hard and crumble instead of having a nice soft, stiff texture.
- Use a spatula to add 1/3 of the meringue to the chocolate mixture and gently fold until it is incorporated.
- Add the remaining meringue gradually and very gently fold so that you don’t lose any of the volume.
- Divide the mixture in to the ramekins.
- Run your pinkie finger along the edge of the ramekins to “separate” the mixture from the ramekin, creating a small “furrow” all around.
- This is a great tip that allows the soufflé to rise evenly.
- Bake for 15 minutes.
- When ready, remove from oven, dust with some icing sugar and serve IMMEDIATELY!
