Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 8 ounces  granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 6 ounces  all purpose flour
  • 2 ounces  cocoa powder
  • 1 quart  whole milk
  • 5 ounces  butter
  • 4 ounces  rum
  • 12 egg whites
  • 4 ounces  granulated sugar
  • fresh whipped cream, to garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Coat 1 large soufflé ramekin with soft butter. Sprinkle a generous 1-2 tablespoons of granulated sugar inside the ramekin. Over your sink, turn the ramekin upside down to get rid of any excess sugar.
  • In a stand mixer, beat sugar with 4 whole eggs and 3 egg yolks until smooth. Add flour and cocoa powder and mix to incorporate.
  • In a large pot, bring milk to a boil. Keep watch over the milk, so it doesn’t burn. You need to stir constantly which will help the milk not scorch. When the milk starts to boil, add the sugar/egg mixture, turn down the heat. Simmer over medium low heat until mixture is cooked. This should take about 5-10 minutes
  • When the mixture is cooked, remove from heat and stir in butter and rum.
  • In a separate large bowl, add the 12 egg whites and beat with 4 ounces of sugar until the whites form stiff peaks. Fold the meringue into the sugar/egg mixture. Pour the mixture into the ramekin.
  • Cook soufflé for 25 minutes.
  • Serve with fresh whipped cream.
