My baking experiment #142 – chocolate souffle

Happy Tuesday! I know this is not my regular baking day. Last Saturday i was running errands and had no time to bake, so i’m making up for it today. As usual i had a huge chocolate craving, so i baked a couple of yummy chocolate souffles:
Ingredients
  • Butter and granulated sugar for coating ramekins
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp hot water
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • Powdered sugar for dusting
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Butter inside of 2 ramekins. Dust with granulated sugar, then pour out excess.
  2. In bowl, microwave milk and chocolate 30-60 seconds. Let sit for 1 minute then whisk until well combined and chocolate has melted.
  3. Add cocoa powder and hot water and whisk until well combined. Set aside to cool.
  4. In another bowl, beat egg whites with salt until foamy. Add sugar and beat until stiff peaks.
  5. Add egg yolks to chocolate mixture and whisk in to combine.
  6. Using rubber spatula, gently mix 1/3 of egg whites into chocolate mixture. Then fold chocolate mixture into remaining whites. Spoon batter into ramekins.
  7. Bake 10-15 minutes until soufflé has risen to about 1 1/2 inch above ramekin.
  8. Remove from oven and dust top with powdered sugar. Serve immediately as soufflé will begin to deflate after about 2 minutes.

These soufflés are so airy & fluffy with a gooey molten chocolate center. It’s like a lighter version of chocolate lava cake. The chocolate flavor is very intense due to the combination of semisweet chocolate & cocoa powder. It definitely satisfied my chocolate cravings!
