For all of you who celebrate Valentine's day, here is a recipe that will surely make your other half melt:
A homemade chocolate soufflé served with a raspberry cream.
I always thought this was going to be a difficult recipe but it turns out to be easy if you follow the exact instructions and measurements. I used Gordon Ramsay's recipe which you can find here or on youtube here.
We don't celebrate Valentine's day as we prefer to surprise each other with romantic gestures when we least expect it, but to all of you who celebrate it: Happy Valentine's day!
*Before placing the soufflé in the oven, make sure that the border of your ramequin is clean so that the soufflé can rise properly.
*Serve with a spoon of homemade raspberry cream
