Nutella Soufflé: A Simple and Delicious Recipe
Hey there, baking enthusiasts! Are you ready to indulge in a delightful dessert that only requires two ingredients? Well, you’re in luck because today we’ll be making a mouthwatering Nutella soufflé. This recipe is not only incredibly easy to follow, but it also delivers a burst of rich and chocolaty flavors that will leave you craving for more. So, put on your apron and let’s get started on this delightful culinary adventure!
To create this delectable dessert, you’ll only need two simple ingredients:
- 2 Eggs
- 170g Nutella
That’s right! Just two ingredients are all it takes to whip up this heavenly Nutella soufflé. So, gather your ingredients and let’s begin!
Separating the Eggs
The first step in this recipe is to separate the eggs. This ensures that we can utilize the different components of the eggs in the best way possible. There are a couple of methods you can use to separate the eggs:
Using the Bottle Trick
One handy trick you can try is using a plastic bottle to separate the egg whites from the yolks. Here’s how you can do it:
- Crack the egg into a bowl.
- Take an empty plastic bottle and squeeze it slightly to create a vacuum.
- Place the bottle over the egg yolk and slowly release your grip. The yolk will get sucked up into the bottle, leaving the egg white behind.
Using Hands or Eggshells
If you don’t have a plastic bottle on hand, don’t worry! You can separate the eggs using your hands or eggshells. Here’s a simple method for doing this:
- Crack the egg into a bowl.
- Using clean hands or the two halves of the eggshell, carefully transfer the egg yolk from one half to the other, allowing the egg white to fall into a separate bowl.
Choose the method that feels most comfortable to you, and let’s move on to the next step!
Whisking the Egg Whites
Now that you have separated the eggs, it’s time to whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks. This step is crucial as it helps create that light and airy texture that makes a soufflé so delightful. Here’s how you can achieve stiff peaks:
Whisking to Stiff Peaks
Using a clean and dry mixing bowl, add the egg whites. To ensure optimal results, it’s recommended to use an electric whisk for this step. Whisk the egg whites vigorously until they reach the point of stiff peaks. This means that when you lift the whisk out of the mixture, the peaks formed by the egg whites should hold their shape firmly.
Using an Electric Whisk
Whisking the egg whites to stiff peaks can be a bit time-consuming and tiring if done by hand. That’s why an electric whisk comes in handy as it makes the process much quicker and easier. If you have an electric whisk, simply attach the beaters and whisk until you achieve those perfect stiff peaks.
Mixing the Yolks and Nutella
With the egg whites whisked to perfection, it’s time to move on to the next step: mixing the yolks and Nutella. This step adds a luscious chocolatey flavor to our soufflé. Here’s how you can do it:
Combining the Yolks and Nutella
In a separate bowl, add the Nutella and egg yolks. Mix them together until they are well combined. The creamy Nutella will blend beautifully with the yolks, creating a velvety base for our soufflé.
Ensuring They Are Well Mixed
It’s important to make sure that the Nutella and egg yolks are thoroughly mixed. This will ensure that every bite of your Nutella soufflé is infused with that irresistible chocolate-hazelnut goodness. Take your time to mix them together until you get a smooth and consistent mixture.
Incorporating the Egg Whites
Now comes the exciting part of bringing everything together. We will gradually incorporate the whipped egg whites into the Nutella and yolk mixture. This careful process will maintain the airiness of the soufflé. Here’s how you can do it:
Adding the Egg Whites to the Mixture
Take about a third of the whipped egg whites and gently fold them into the Nutella and yolk mixture. This initial incorporation will help lighten the mixture and make it easier to fold in the rest of the egg whites.
Folding Them in Gently
To maintain the delicate texture of the soufflé, it’s crucial to fold in the remaining egg whites gently. Using a spatula or spoon, carefully fold the egg whites into the mixture. This means cutting through the center of the mixture with your utensil and bringing it up and over the egg whites, repeating until everything is evenly combined. Be sure not to overmix as this can deflate the airiness of the soufflé.
Pouring the Mixture
With everything mixed together, it’s time to pour the batter into ramekins. This step ensures even cooking and provides a beautiful individual serving for your Nutella soufflé. Here’s how you can do it:
Dividing the Mixture Evenly into Ramekins
Take your ramekins and divide the mixture evenly between them. By distributing the batter equally, your soufflés will cook uniformly and rise to perfection. Fill each ramekin about ¾ full to allow the soufflés to expand as they bake.
Ensuring Even Distribution
To make sure the mixture is evenly distributed, you can gently tap the ramekins on the counter a few times. This will help any air bubbles to rise to the surface and ensure an even rise during baking.
Baking the Soufflé
Now that your soufflé batter is prepared, it’s time to bake these delightful treats to perfection. Follow these steps for a delicious outcome:
Setting the Oven Temperature to 170C (fan)
Preheat your oven to 170C (fan). The hot oven will work its magic by creating a beautiful rise and ensuring a light and airy texture for your Nutella soufflé.
Baking for 17-18 Minutes
Carefully place your filled ramekins onto a baking tray and slide them into the preheated oven. Bake the soufflés for approximately 17-18 minutes, or until they have risen and are slightly golden on top. Keep an eye on them throughout the baking process to ensure they don’t overcook.
Checking for a Slightly Wobbly Center
To achieve that perfect texture, remove the soufflés from the oven when the centers are still slightly wobbly. This will give you a soft and creamy center, which is the hallmark of a deliciously baked soufflé. Remember, the residual heat will continue cooking the soufflés as they cool on the counter.
To add the finishing touch and elevate the presentation of your Nutella soufflés, there are a few simple steps you can take:
Sprinkling with Icing Sugar
Once the soufflés have cooled slightly, dust the tops with a generous sprinkle of icing sugar. This will not only add a touch of sweetness but will also create a beautiful contrast against the rich cocoa color.
Adding Final Touches
Feel free to unleash your creativity by adding some final touches to your Nutella soufflés. You can garnish them with a dollop of whipped cream, a drizzle of melted chocolate, or even some chopped hazelnuts for added crunch. Let your imagination run wild and make these soufflés uniquely yours!
Tips and Tricks

Experimenting with Different Toppings
While Nutella soufflés are fantastic on their own, don’t be afraid to experiment with different toppings. Try adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a drizzle of caramel sauce, or even a dusting of cocoa powder. Let your tastebuds be your guide and enjoy the creative journey!
