Dark Chocolate Souffle Cupcakes

Rated as 4.4 out of 5 Stars

"Dark, rich, and creamy souffle-like recipe. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. This is a modified brownie recipe, reducing the flour and egg amounts, creaming the sugar, and adding heavy cream to create a cross between a chocolate souffle and a brownie."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray 20 muffin cups with cooking spray and dust with flour, or line with paper liners.
  2. Melt chopped dark chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 15-second intervals, stirring after each melting, 1 to 3 minutes.
  3. Beat eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy; beat in sugar gradually on high speed. Add cream and beat until batter has doubled in volume. Beat in butter until well combined. Beat in flour and salt on low speed until well combined. Beat in melted chocolate on medium speed until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans. Pour batter into muffin cups.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • This recipe's cook time makes moist, fudgy cupcakes. Add 3 to 5 minutes cooking time for more well-done, if desired.

Tastes like a brownie. They are hard to get out of the cupcake tins without them falling. They fall apart easily. Everyone liked them but said they tasted like an uncooked brownie. Soufflés ate ...

They were a little undercooked at 22 minutes, so I cooked them for 30 minutes and they were perfect!! These are so delicious by themselves but I added an Oreo at the bottom of the cupcake liner ...

I'm addicted to chocolate (the cravings get especially bad around exam time), and these are my absolute favorite to make when those cravings hit. I know there aren't a lot of review on here now,...

Nice and chewy, my new favorite cupcake
