Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for the ramekins
  • 1 tablespoon sugar, plus more for the ramekins
  • 1/2 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 large egg yolk plus 3 egg whites
  • Pinch of cream of tartar
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting (optional)
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Butter four 6-ounce ramekins; sprinkle with sugar and tap out the excess. Put the ramekins on a baking sheet; transfer to the freezer while you make the batter.

  • Heat the chocolate syrup and 2 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan over low heat until the butter melts, about 2 minutes; let cool. Whisk the egg yolk in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in the chocolate syrup mixture until combined.

  • Beat the egg whites with a mixer on medium speed until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and beat until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon sugar and beat until stiff peaks just form, 1 to 2 more minutes.

  • Fold one-third of the beaten egg whites into the chocolate-yolk mixture until combined. Fold in the remaining egg whites in two additions until no white streaks remain.

  • 5. Divide the batter among the prepared ramekins. Bake until the souffles are puffed and browned around the edges, 18 to 20 minutes. Dust with cocoa powder and serve immediately.
