TWD - Chocolate Souffle

This week's Tuesdays With Dorie project was a chocolate souffle. Man, I was looking forward to this - doesn't it just sound so elegant and rich and chic?

Those words are, generally, never uttered about my cooking, let me tell you. And perhaps that's why I didn't overly like it. I didn't find it hard to make - I think souffles are a lot easier than they're made out to be - but the taste didn't wow me. It was light and fluffy, but I wanted a super chocolate punch and I didn't get that. From now on, I think I'll stick to savoury souffles, because I don't think the recipe was a problem - just not what I was looking for, that's all.

Ah souffle, it was good to know you! Next post: food that is not a dessert. Really.


  1. Looks great! This was my first souffle and I liked it just fine. But I think I was expecting more of a chocolate punch, too. It was good, but I was expecting more richness, I guess. At least we tried it!

  2. Your souffle looks delicious! I'm sorry the taste didn't wow you. I'd like to try a savory souffle too and see how that turns out!

  3. Looks lovely. Sorry it wasn't your thing.

    My first and I really liked it.
