My husband and I have a super sweet tooth, last night we were craving for chocolate. It was a result of going through this cookbook which I recently got, my my my every picture and recipe was so tempting and since I had the ingredients of this recipe handy I went ahead with it.
I cannot rave enough about this souffles and if you are chocolate person you must try this. The best part is you can have it as soon as its made, no freezing required. Its moist and creamy with a lovely chocolate flavor ~ made me go bonkers!!!
What I really liked about this recipe -
- cooking time is 30 mins
- have it hot
- gluten free and no flour
- used only skimmed milk
- 134 cal / per serving
Watch-out for my review on this cookbook soon, now lets to the recipe
50g plain dark chocolate, chopped
2 tsp cornflour
1 tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp instant coffee powder
4 tsp golden caster sugar
150 ml skimmed milk
2 medium eggs, separated
- Preheat oven to 190C mark 5. Take a pan and put the chopped chocolate, cornflour, cocoa powder,coffee powder, 1 tsp caster sugar and milk. Warm gently to melt the chocolate. Increase the heat and stir until the mixture thickens. Allow to cook a little, then stir in the egg yolks. Cover it with a lid
- Take a grease free bowl and whisk the egg whites with an electric whisk until soft peaks form. Gradually whisk the remaining caster sugar until the mixture is stiff.
- Stir one-tird egg whites into the chocolate mixture. Fold in the remaining whites and divide among six 150 ml ramekins. Put the ramekins on the baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes until well risen. Serve immediately
- For serving you could pour some chocolate sauce/condensed milk/custard for an extra taste (optional)
