Feeling French today…


The thought of making a soufflé scares most of us, just sounds so fancy and tricky to make. Well it is a bit tricky, but not so hard to make and delicious to eat. If I got it right the first time, I’m sure you can too!




Here is TLC’s Chef Curtis Stone’s Recipe:


Chocolate Soufflé

You will need

2 ramekins
1 pastry brush
2 large bowls
1 spatula
1 baking sheet
1 saucepan
electric mixer
oven

Ingredients
·      3 tbsp/45ml (about) unsalted butter, melted, cooled

·      1/3 cup/80ml sugar, plus more for coating dishes

·      6 large egg whites
·      
4 oz/110g high-quality dark chocolate (62-70% cacao)

·      1/2 cup/120ml cold water

·      1/3 cup/80ml unsweetened cocoa powder

Method








1.      Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2.      Coat the interiors of six 7.75-ounce soufflé dishes completely with some of the butter.
3.      Refrigerate until the butter is cold and set, about 2 minutes. Brush a second coating of butter over the interiors of the dishes.
4.      Coat the interiors completely with sugar. Place the dishes on a baking sheet.
5.      Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites in a large bowl until they are foamy.
6.      Gradually beat in 1/3 cup of sugar.
7.      Continue beating until the egg whites are shiny and form medium-soft peaks when the beaters are lifted.
8.      Meanwhile, stir the chopped chocolate in a large bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water until melted and smooth.
9.      Remove from the heat.
10.    Add the water and cocoa powder and mix until smooth. Fold a fourth of the egg white mixture into the chocolate mixture.
11.    Fold in the remaining egg white mixture (the mixture will resemble chocolate mousse).
12.    Divide the soufflé batter equally among the prepared soufflé dishes.
13.    Using a large knife, level the filling flush to the top of the dishes.
14.    Using a clean cloth, wipe the very top edges of the dishes.
15.    Bake the soufflés on the baking sheet until they puff but are still moist in the center, about 12 minutes.
16.    Serve immediately.
