This roasted hazelnut soufflé with chocolate sauce recipe is an extract from Sugar, I Love You by Ravneet Gill (£20, Pavilion Books). Ravneet says: "I want to reassure you that a soufflé is not scary. Think of it simply as a thickened base – here a crème pâtissière – with a simple French meringue folded through it. The rise on this is a thing of beauty and it is like eating a fluffy Ferrero Rocher, a true crowd-pleaser. Serve at a dinner party to impress, if the dining table isn’t too far a walk from the kitchen. You can make the hazelnut base in advance and keep it in the fridge for up to three days. Just make sure you loosen it properly before folding the meringue through it."
Sweet, salty and with bitter notes of caramel and a satisfying crunch from the popcorn, these desserts from Miro in Mayfair have it all. The base of these soufflés is made from a velvety smooth rice purée instead of crème pâtissière – this adds stability, meaning they can be fully assembled a few hours ahead of cooking. You will need four soufflé moulds for this recipe.

Pistachio soufflés make a really satisfying pudding, and the effort is truly worth it. Our chocolate sauce adds a rich finish to the light and fluffy soufflé. Find pistachio cream or use 2 tbsp finely ground pistachios. A hot baking sheet adds bottom heat to help the soufflés rise. Double buttering the ramekins with upward strokes encourages the soufflé upwards. Running a knife around the top of the soufflé mix (called top hatting) gives a better finish to the soufflé edge.
