After watching what may be SortedFood's sexiest video, it was inevitable for me to try it...And now it has become my go-to recipe for an impressive dessert that takes a lot less effort than it seems ;)

Dark Chocolate Soufflé 
recipe from SortedFood

A knob of butter
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
90g dark chocolate (I used 60% cacao)
1 tbsp. heavy cream
3 large eggs, separated
2 tbsp. caster sugar
A pinch of cream of tartar (opt.)

A scoop of vanilla ice cream (opt.)

Grease two (or three) ramekins with butter and dust with cocoa powder.
Melt the chocolate and heavy cream over a double boiler (or microwave).
Whisk egg whites with a pinch of cream of tartar and caster sugar till stiff peaks.
Mix egg yolks with the chocolate mixture. 
Add a dollop of egg white into the egg yolk mixture, mix, then fold together everything till even.
Divide batter between the two (or three) ramekins and run a finger around the rim of the ramekin to clean it and allow it to rise evenly.
Bake at 400°F for 10-15 until risen and just set.
Remove from oven, dust with confectioner's sugar and top it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
