RECIPE: Chocolate Souffle
I think this is about the fourth souffle I’ve done this year. What can I tell you? I’ve got the souffle dishes of all different sizes and I want to perfect my souffle making skills so what’s a woman to do.
When I heard that you could make a chocolate souffle I was all over it. So I did my research on the internet to find the perfect recipe to try. I found this Chocolate Souffle recipe at EatingWell.com. I was in love. Me, Chocolate, and a nice wine. Again I was in love. 🙂
I found this recipe extremely easy to make. I created it from start to finish in about 30 minutes with a eagerly waiting guest enjoying a nice glass of vino. Once everything was mixed and incorporated I was free to join my guest on the lanai while waiting for the time to beep.
One thing I did do incorrectly was incorporating the egg whites into the rest of the mixture. If you’ve read my previous souffle posts you’ll know that this is the most important part of making a souffle that rises really well. I didn’t do that with this recipe not because I didn’t know how but because I wasn’t paying attention until it was too late. I was so enamored with the concept of chocolate souffles and enjoying them with my guest that I realized too late that I had just brutally mixed all the ingredients together. My bad!
The resulting souffles were outstandingly delicious but flat. The never rose to the heights that were expected of them but that was my fault. However, like I’ve said in my other souffle posts, even a souffle that turns out bad is still a great tasting souffle and this one was no exception. Coating the inside of the ramekins with Pam spray and sprinkling sugar around the edges gives these chocolate souffles some crunchy sweetness as does the sprinkling of powdered sugar on top. Do make these and let me know what you think. 🙂
