Anthony's Chocolate Soufflé Torte

Hub-UK first came into existence back in May 2000. Seems a long time ago now!

Back then the internet was a very different place with much more of an amateur feel to it. In a lot of ways it was a pleasanter and more friendly place to hang out. For those of us interested in food and cooking it was a great opportunity to chat and share ideas with people living in other parts of the world.

It was also a time when everyone involved in cooking, whether they were just a keen amateur, a busy mum, a grandmother with a lifetime of kitchen experience or a professional chef just starting a career in the kitchen or one who was an old hand working at the stove, was happy to share recipes so others could enjoy them.

A lot of the details of who contributed the recipe, or the hsitory of the recipe, have either become blurred or disappeared over the years but the recipes are still worthwhile either in their own right or for the inspiration they might give.

This recipe comes from Andrea J Sykes. Anthony's is a restaurant located in Houston, Texas.


8 oz. semisweet or bittersweet Chocolate
4 oz. plus 1 teaspoon unsalted Butter
5 Eggs, separated
1 C. granulated Sugar
Powdered Sugar for garnish

  • Melt butter and chocolate together. Let cool.
  • Preheat oven to 350º and flour an 8-inch spring form pan or spray with Pam.
  • Beat egg yolks with 1/2 cup granulated sugar using mixer with whisk attachment, beat until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in melted chocolate mixture. Transfer mixture to another bowl.
  • Clean out mixer bowl and whish egg whites until foamy, then gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, beating to form soft peaks.
  • In 2 or 3 additions, fold egg whites into chocolate mixture.
  • Pour mixture into prepared pan and bake 45 - 50 minutes with a shallow pan of water placed on the lowest rack in the oven.
  • When done, cake will be firm to touch and the top covered with cracks. Cool on rack 10 to 20 minutes. Cake will deflate. Invert onto serving in plate, sprinkle top with sifted powdered sugar.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
