Chocolate Fallen Soufflé Cake

This is the perfect Shabbat dessert because unlike regular souffle which has to be eaten right away, this is designed to eat later, once it has fallen and it is delicious.


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 12 oz fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), chopped
  • 1½ sticks (¾ cup) unsalted margarine, cut into tablespoon pieces
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 5 large eggs, separated and at room temperature for 30 minutes
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour


Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray and line bottom with a round of parchment or wax paper, then spray paper.

Melt chocolate and margarine in a large glass bowl in the microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently, then cool completely. Whisk in vanilla, salt, and 6 tablespoons sugar. Add yolks 1 at a time, whisking well after each addition. Whisk in flour.

Beat whites with a pinch of salt in a bowl using an electric mixer at medium-high speed until they hold soft peaks, then add remaining 6 tablespoons sugar a little at a time, beating, and continue to beat until whites hold stiff glossy peaks.

Whisk about one fourth of whites into chocolate mixture to lighten, then fold in remaining whites gently but thoroughly. Pour batter into springform pan, spreading evenly.

Bake until a wooden pick or skewer inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs adhering, 35 to 40 minutes.

Cool cake in pan on a rack 10 minutes. Remove side of pan and cool cake completely. Invert cake onto rack and remove bottom of pan, discarding paper, then invert cake onto a plate.  If desired sprinkle powdered sugar over top.

    thanks again!

  3. Can I substitute extra virgin coconut oil for the margarine in the Chocolate fallen souflee cake?
    I think it is healthier.
    Looks like a terrific recipe

    Sorry, it’s not 300 grams, as one stick is 113 grams. So its about 175 grams.
