The recipe will make 4 teacups, so you can have a second round for chocolate lovers! Whipping the egg white will give a texture of a light soufflé without the stress of the collapsing soufflé!


Serves 2

  • 100g butter
  • 200g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 110g caster sugar (10g +100g)
  • 200g raspberry
  • ½ lemon, juice
  • 1-2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp lightly whipped cream, to serve

  2. In the meantime, in a separate bowl, beat egg yolks with 10g of sugar until combined. Keep aside.
  3. In a third bowl, whisk the egg whites until a soft peak and start to combine the caster sugar until soft and shiny as a meringue.
  4. Fold the egg yolk in the chocolate mixture and then the meringue. Fill twp porcelain teacups two-thirds full. Keep the rest for later in the fridge if you want to have a second go!
  5. Arrange on a baking tray and bake for 10-12 minutes In the meantime, combine the raspberry with lemon juice and icing sugar. Blend or crush with a fork to create a puree.
