Chocolate cravings are a thing, and most ladies out there will agree, but we keep telling ourselves since it's dark chocolate it's somewhat healthy. So here it goes, we had too much chocolate in the pantry and the craving kicked in, we made a souffle, it was too good and we ate it all and didn't share as we usually would. And souffles are very light flourless and safe for anyone with gluten allergies. Pay attention here, You MUST dig in the minute it comes out of the oven. That's when they taste the best. Feel free to add some vanilla ice cream.
300 g of dark chocolate (preferably 70% 0r 75%)
300 g de Lait
3 egg yolks
200g of egg white
20 g of cornstarch (Maïzena)
80 g of sugar
1. Preheat your oven to 345 f.
2. Break your chocolate into small pieces.
3. Bring the milk and the cornstarch (Maizena) to boil for 1 min.
4. Add the milk and maizena content into chocolate until it dissolves and let cool.
5. Add the egg yolks and mix.
6. In a separate bowl, or mixer mix, the egg white with 20 g of the sugar until you get a creamy texture.
7. Add the remaining sugar into the mixture and mix until you get a foam texture. It should stick when you turn your bowl over.
8. Gently incorporate the egg white mixture into the chocolate mixture.
9. Grab some butter to prepare your soufflé molds.
10. Add the final mixture into your mold (about ¾ of the mold)
11. Transfer your molds into the oven and let cook for 12 min.
12. Once done, you can add some powdered sugar and eat immediately.
Enjoy because we sure did!
