Hot Chocolate Soufflé

An egg yolk adds richness to the base, and beaten egg whites give this soufflé volume. Softened ice cream makes a great, quick sauce.

Cooking Light MAY 2002

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup soufflé and 2 tablespoons ice cream)

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup low-fat coffee ice cream, softened

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°.

Coat a 1 1/2-quart soufflé dish with cooking spray; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon granulated sugar. Set dish aside.

Combine milk, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, cornstarch, instant coffee granules, and salt in a small saucepan, stirring constantly with a whisk until blended. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook 1 minute or until thick, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Gradually add hot milk mixture to egg yolk, stirring constantly with a whisk. Return milk mixture to pan. Cook over medium heat until thick (about 2 minutes), stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and chocolate, stirring until chocolate melts.

Place egg whites in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add 3 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.

Gently stir one-fourth of egg white mixture into chocolate mixture; gently fold in remaining egg white mixture. Spoon into the prepared soufflé dish.

Bake at 375° for 25 minutes or until puffy and set. Serve immediately topped with ice cream.
