Raspberry-Chocolate Soufflés

recipe
These pink and chocolate-brown individual desserts are a great recipe for the soufflé novice. To coat the insides of the ramekins with sugar, divide the sugar evenly, or place all 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar in one ramekin. Tilt the ramekin to coat evenly with sugar, and pour all remaining sugar into another ramekin; repeat until all are coated.

Ingredients

Cooking spray
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk, divided
1 (10-ounce) bag frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed
2 large egg yolks
1 tablespoon cornstarch
4 large egg whites
1/3 cup sugar
2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°.

Coat 6 (6-ounce) ramekins or custard cups with cooking spray. Divide 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar evenly among the 6 ramekins, and turn to coat insides of ramekins with sugar.

Combine 6 tablespoons milk and raspberries in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Strain raspberry mixture through a sieve over a large bowl, pressing with back of a spoon to remove as much liquid as possible. Discard solids in sieve. Add egg yolks to raspberry mixture; stir with a whisk until smooth. Combine remaining 2 tablespoons milk and cornstarch, stirring with a whisk. Add cornstarch mixture to raspberry mixture; stir well.

Place egg whites in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Gently stir one-fourth of egg white mixture into raspberry mixture; gently fold in remaining egg white mixture. Fold in chocolate just until combined. Spoon into the 6 prepared ramekins, and place ramekins on a baking sheet.

Bake at 400° for 14 minutes or until soufflés are puffed and lightly browned. Serve immediately.
