Chocolate Souffle
(Recipe from The F Word Series)

Ingredients : 

25g of softened butter
Grated chocolate
 

Crème pâtissière
20g cornflour
200ml milk
200g dark chocolate, 70% cocoa solids, chopped
80g egg yolks

Egg white Mixture
200g egg whites
150g caster sugar

Steps :

1. Preheat oven at 180˚C/gas 4.

2. Brush 8 ramekins with the softened butter and chill it for 5 mins.
Then coat the ramekins with grated chocolate.

3. For the crème pâtissière, slake the corn flour with a little of the milk,
then gradually add the rest of the milk until you have a smooth mixture.
Pour into a small pan, and slowly bring to the boil,
stirring continuously.
Boil for 30 seconds then off the heat, add the chocolate and whisk until smooth.
Beat in the egg yolks until smooth before transferring to a bowl to cool

4. In an artisan mixer, whisk the egg whites to soft peaks.
Gradually start to add in the sugar, whisking well in between each addition.
Once all the sugar has been added, continue to whisk until you have a thick and glossy mixture

5. Add one third of the egg whites into the chocolate crème patisserie mixture and mix well.
Now add in the remaining egg white and gently fold into the mix.
Do not over work the mixture as it will become too hard and stiff

6. Divide the mixture between the ramekins.
Level the surface with a palate knife then bake for 6-8 minutes,
or until well risen and with a slightly wobbly centre.
Remove from the oven and dust with the remaining cocoa powder.
Serve immediately with a scoop of ice cream
(your favourite flavour!)

7. Chocolate souffle. DONE.

50g plain flour
Icing sugar to dust
Vanilla ice cream to serve
Steps :

1. Preheat oven to 160˚C/Gas 2.

2. Butter two large ramekins, about 7.5cm in diameter,
then dust liberally with cocoa, shaking out any excess.

3. Slowly melt the chocolate and butter in a small bowl set over a pan of hot water,
then take off the heat and stir until smooth.
Leave to cool for 10 minutes.

4. Using an electric whisk, whisk the whole egg, egg yolk and sugar together until pale and thick,
then incorporate the chocolate mixture.
Sift the flour over the mixture and gently fold in, using a large metal spoon.
Divide between the ramekins and bake for 12 minutes.

5. Turn the chocolate fondants out on to warmed plates.
Dust the tops with icing sugar and serve with a spoonful of vanilla ice cream.
