family recipe

Poppy seed soufflé

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is our first and most popular family recipe; a  transcreation of the classic chocolate lava cake. We polished the recipe years long with my husband. Best served hot, on a freezy winter afternoon.


  • 40 g butter
  • 100 g white chocolate
  • 2 egg
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 70 g sugar
  • 100 g flour
  • 30 g finely ground poppy seed


  1. Preheat oven to 160 °C
  2. Melt the white chocolate and butter in a double boiler. Whisk the egg, egg yolk and sugar for about 3-5 minutes. Add it to the chocolate mixture, together with the poppy seed and flour. Stir with a whisk until smooth.
  3.  Divide the batter evenly among the ceramic custard cups.
  4.  Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. The edges should be firm but the center shall ooze out like lava.
  5. Let slightly cool before serving. Garnish with sour cherry.
