Chocolate Soufflé Recipe

1/2 cup sugar, divided
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4 egg whites, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
4 egg yolks

Heat oven to 350°F.

In medium saucepan, mix 1/4 cup sugar with cocoa powder, flour and salt; gradually whisk in milk until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Stir in vanilla. Remove from heat.

In mixer bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar with whisk attachment on high speed until foamy. Beating constantly, add remaining sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating after each addition until sugar is dissolved. (Rub a bit of mixture between thumb and forefinger; it should feel completely smooth.) Continue beating until egg whites are glossy and stand in soft peaks.
