About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my banana & chocolate soufflé for you to enjoy.

In our family, the combination of chocolate and banana is a big winner, especially in pancakes or cupcakes, so I created this soufflé just for a change. It’s really easy to prepare, and also works well with strawberries or raspberries.

Feast your eyes on the finest banana & chocolate soufflé! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/gas mark 6.

Grease 8 ramekins with the melted butter. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the cocoa powder inside each one, coating the bottom and sides evenly. Discard any excess cocoa.

Place the bananas and Nutella in a food processor or blender and blitz to a smooth texture. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and set aside.

In a large, clean dry bowl, whisk the egg whites until they have formed soft peaks. Add the caster sugar and whisk again for about 1 minute.

Using a flexible spatula, fold half the egg whites into the banana and chocolate mixture. Once combined, very gently fold in the rest.

Divide the mixture equally between the ramekins, then place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes until risen.

Sprinkle the top with icing sugar if you wish and serve immediately.

Conchigle Rigate PiccantiShell Pasta With Spicy Pork And Tomato Sauce

I love this shape of pasta and this sauce is perfect for it. The delicate taste of the pork with the strong flavours of the chilli, olives and sun-dried tomatoes is a match made in heaven. I know that most people add cheese to pasta sauces but please don’t to this one. It really doesn't need it and will actually ruin the natural flavours of the ingredients. If you fancy, substitute the conchiglie...

Torta di Polenta con Arance e CointreauPolenta Cake with Oranges & Cointreau

This is such a beautiful cake to enjoy in the afternoon with a cup of coffee or tea. Alternatively, serve it with a dollop of mascarpone on the side as a dessert. My kids, however, won’t thank me for this recipe as they think every dessert should be about chocolate! You can substitute the Cointreau with a citrusy Limoncello if you prefer.

Salsicce e lenticchieItalian Sausages with Braised Lentils

Here’s a great alternative to the traditional British bangers and mash. Italian sausages tend to be highly flavoured with herbs and spices, such as fennel, which adds a perfect boost of flavour to this recipe.

Tagliatelle con Salsicce e PorciniTagliatelle with Sausages, Rosemary and Porcini Mushrooms

I love good-quality sausages so this recipe is definitely in my top ten. My grandfather used to make this dish for me when I was a boy but he used a tomato passata instead of the cream that I have introduced. I wish he could have tasted my version as I know I would have got a huge cuddle for this one – he would have loved it and I know that you will too. For those of you who don’t like mushrooms,...

Gnocchetti sardi fatti in casaHomemade Sardinian Pasta Shells

Making pasta can be a bit of a chore, but gnocchetti sardi (also known as malloreddus) is really easy. You don’t need a pasta machine – just mix, roll, shape and cook. Unlike most other types of home-made pasta, which contain eggs, the dough for these shells is made from flour and water, giving the pasta a firmer texture. The shells are best served with a chunky sauce such as a ragù made from...

Zuppa di Cipolle e PancettaOnion, Tomato and Pancetta Soup

By far – and I really mean by far – this has to be my favourite soup recipe in any of my books. If you like onion soup, this is so much more – in fact, I don’t know anyone who has tried it and not loved it. I think you will be amazed at the flavour combinations. Make sure it is always served hot. It will keep refrigerated for 48 hours, but remember, like most soups, it can be reheated only...
