Gluten Free, Dairy Free Raspberry Soufflés with Chocolate Sauce

Raspberry Souffle Chocolate Sauce Recipe, Gluten and Dairy Free - The Sugar Hit


Hello again, you. If you’ve been reading The Sugar Hit for any period of time, you might have noticed that I don’t exactly go heavy on the diet foods. (You may also have noticed my extremely weak styling and photography skills, but that’s neither here nor there!) The point is, I love to post recipes that are totally worth their calorie count, even if it is astronomical! No second rate sweets are welcome here. I figure if it’s worth going to the effort of pouring our hearts into baking something, then it damn well better be worth eating a big healthy portion, with ice cream on top, even if it means hitting the spin bike a little harder this week! And every push of the pedal is made easier with remembrance of the terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, the creamy middles of that dessert.

Which brings me to the terrifying highs, dizzying lows and creamy middles of this Raspberry Soufflé. Given what I’ve told you about my dessert attitude, it will come as no surprise that I did not create this recipe with a view to making something healthy, or diet friendly. I wasn’t even thinking virtuously of the people who I love who have food allergies or intolerances. Nope, it was a combination of those two wonderful motivators, greed and laziness.


Greed: I want a fancy dessert.

Laziness: I don’t want to work hard for it.

The irony is that I am totally willing to spend hours trawling through my ridiculously huge library of cookbooks, not to mention the entire internet, for hours on end searching for ideas, techniques and inspiration. But on this particular day, I was totally unwilling to spend more than about 15 minutes actually in the kitchen. Go figure. Well, who cares when the system works? Because as a result of my greedy, lazy, backwards thinking, we now have a totally Gluten Free, totally Dairy Free, and totally EASY soufflé recipe. Bam.

The whole shebang has 6 ingredients, and the soufflé itself has only three. This recipe is also totally grain free, so it might be Paleo? But honestly I have no idea. All I know is that it is gooooood eating. To misquote Veruca Salt from the Willy Wonka movie “the raspberries taste like raspberries!”. In fact the whole dessert tastes like raspberries; like a giant cloud of fresh, sweet raspberries, picked from the bush and crammed into my mouth. Of course, then I smother the whole cloud in a dark, bitter, honey-scented chocolate syrup. Because, duh.

Gluten Free, Dairy Free Raspberry Soufflé with Chocolate Sauce

Serves 2

INGREDIENTS: For the Soufflé:

non-stick spray, to grease ramekins.

150g frozen raspberries

60g caster sugar, extra to dust

2 egg whites For the Chocolate Sauce:

1 tbsp cocoa powder

60ml honey

50g 70% dark chocolate (dairy free – check the label) First, make the chocolate sauce, by placing the cocoa powder into a small saucepan and slowly stirring in 125ml (1/2 cup) of water. Add the honey and chocolate to the saucepan, and place over a medium heat. Bring slowly to the boil, stirring to incorporate the chocolate, and boil for about 30 seconds, or until slightly syrupy. Set aside to cool and thicken. To make the soufflé, preheat the oven to 180C. DO NOT use the fan. Grease 2x200ml capacity ramekins with non-stick spray, and dust them liberally with caster sugar, shaking out the excess. Meanwhile, place the raspberries, sugar and 1 tbsp of water in a small saucepan over a low heat, and cook until the raspberries are just about broken down, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, and press the contents of the pan through a coarse sieve into a bowl, forcing through as much of the mixture as you can, while leaving the seeds behind. Leave the raspberry mixture to cool while  you whisk the two egg whites to stiff peaks in a separate bowl. Using a rubber spatula, fold the egg whites into the raspberry mixture, until well combined and streak free. Divide the mixture between the two ramekins and bake for 15 minutes or until well risen and lightly browned. Serve immediately with cooled chocolate sauce.


  1. I love souffle and the best souffle I’ve ever had was in Austin few years ago. This totally reminded me how I love souffle.

    • Souffle for the win!

    • Nothing like a good pour-shot! Pour-n?

  2. Unfortunately sugar is definitely not Paleo!!!! However I still might have to try this, maybe sub for coconut sugar which you can sometimes sneak into a paleo diet in small doses when nobody is looking!

    • Lol! I knew I’d crap out on that score! Let me know how you go. :)

  3. This looks so yummy! I love love love the texture of a souffle! It’s so funny that most recipes can be labeled as any number of things (gluten free, paleo, etc) but we just don’t think to do it. Good marketing though ;)

    • HAHA, yes. I am clearly a marketing GENIUS.

  4. Just discovered your blog.
    Beautiful pictures and it’s amazing that such a healthy recipe can look (and taste) so delicious!

    • Welcome! You come back now, you hear?

  5. Sometimes you feel like spending hours in the kitchen and sometimes you want something in 15 minutes…nothing wrong with that! I do love healthy recipes but this is also pretty amazing how simple the ingredients list is and you don’t have to substitute in 4 different flours with 3 different flax eggs, etc. Love it!

  6. Oh my. My boy always order soufflé if it’s on the menu and ALWAYS says ‘why don’t you ever make me souffle at home?’ Now I have no excuse…

    • It’s way easier than you think!

  7. Now this is what you call a dessert! AND YES OH YES TO THE EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF SAUCE!

  8. I’m all for skipping diet fads, being lazy with preparation time, and ending up with something like this :) What a beautiful dessert!

  9. Wow, this looks and sounds amazing! I can’t believe you only used 6 ingredients for the whole thing. I love souffle and who doesn’t want chocolate sauce. It really looks beautiful.

  10. I always think of it as a happy surprise when healthy desserts happen without my realizing it…because while I may healthify dinner in every possible way, I NEVER skimp on dessert!! I am LOVING how gloriously pink and RASPBERRY! this is!

  11. I had an amazing lemon souffle on my birthday and I’ve been dreaming of making one myself since then. Love this one — looks so perfect! And I love shortcuts!


  13. I’ve never, ever even tried to make a souffle, but must admit that this beauty here is making a very compelling case. Looks absolutely gorgeous, and I can only imagine how delicious it was. Three cheers for making the calories count.

  14. This looks totally delish. I have never made souffle before but I need to and soon :-)

  15. these raspberries soufflé look amazing!! just delicious!

  16. Your photography skills are great! I also love making really decadent desserts, but sometimes a healthier treat is definitely in order. I have always wanted to make a souffle, and this looks so easy and impressive!

  17. A combination of greed and laziness – ha! This dessert looks absolutely incredible, well worth the subsequent workout.

  18. “The snozzberries taste like snozzberries!” Ha. I actually quote that all the time, it’s surprisingly applicable in all sorts of situations.

    And I am mesmerized by the chocolate sauce pouring onto the souffle. Like, I can’t take my eyes off of it. I don’t know what you’re talking about when you say weak photography skills, because I’m one second away from lunging through my screen to eat this souffle.

    • Somehow I KNEW you would love that quote. Sugary minds think alike, eh?

  19. Your photos look great to me.. Especially that one with the chocolate dripping down the side of that souffle.. oh my

  20. This looks crazy good and the pictures are very nice!

  21. That lovely combination of greed and laziness has brought me some of my biggest triumphs in the kitchen! This is recipe is definitely a triumph. Bring. It. On. Healthy, shmelthy..

  22. I am totally blown away with this gorgeous raspberry souffle! And the chocolate sauce…o my…I think I am in heaven!

  23. Just beautiful! Aren’t raspberries and chocolate the perfect pair? And I love that it only has a few decadent ingredients. Perfect. Thank you for sharing!

  24. It looks really lovely and I can’t wait to try it but it isn’t really dairy free if you are using butter in the ramekins is it?

    • You’re right! Fixed!
