Pistachio soufflé with dark chocolate sauce

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.

Prune and Armagnac soufflé

Making your own soufflés from scratch might seem a bit daunting but if you follow this detailed recipe carefully, yours will be perfect. The rich prune and Armagnac soufflé is served with a boozy Armagnac custard.
