SWIPE for 👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼 The SIMPLEST Chocolate Soufflé! —
Don't save the soufflé for the pastry chef...Make it Yourself! With only 5 ingredients and a few important steps, you can impress anyone with these divinely heavenly treats:
🔻3 eggs, separated. —
🔻1/4 cup sugar, plus some for ramekins. —
🔻2oz good quality bittersweet chocolate, melted.
🔻1/4 tsp salt.
🔻1/4 tsp cream of tartar. —
1. Preheat oven 350F/180C. Butter two 2-cup soufflé ramekins. Sprinkle each with a little sugar, invert it & tap to remove excess sugar.
2. Beat egg yolks with all but 1 TBSP of the sugar until they turn a light pale yellow & the mixture falls in a ribbon from beaters. Mix in the melted chocolate until well combined; set aside.
3. Wash beaters well, then beat egg whites with salt & cream of tartar until whites hold soft peaks; continue to beat, gradually adding remaining 1 TBSP sugar, until they are very stiff and glossy. Stir a good spoonful of whites thoroughly into egg yolk mixture to lighten it; then gently fold in remaining whites, using a spatula. Transfer to prepared soufflé dishes. If needed, at this point you can cover and refrigerate for 1-2hrs until you are ready to bake.
4. Bake until center is nearly set, 20min. Resist the urge to open the oven before the 20min mark. Serve immediately :) —
❤️ As you know, this was my very first time making soufflé’s & with only ~220 calories, 26g carbs, 12g fat, 8g protein each these babies are not as 'sinful' as one may think. Note: Please don't do as I did and think they're not done at the 20min mark. I left them in for 5min extra & admittedly this did make them a little drier then I would have preferred. Nonetheless, they still were the perfect Valentines Day surprise that I will definitely be making again! #happyvalentinesday#valentinesday#valentinesurprise#chocolatesouffle#soufflé#souffléauchocolat#amour#homemade#pastry#bakefeed#feedfeed#yum#markbittman#bitten#nytimes#nytcooking#nytimesfood
