Hot Chocolate Souffle

HOT CHOCOLATE SOUFFLE

By Rochelle

Serves 4

Preparation Time: 10 mins + cooling
Cooking Time: 20 – 25 mins
Calories per serving: 150
Freezing not recommended

Soufflés are not difficult to make
And they’re absolutely scrumptious
to eat! The secret is to whisk the egg
whites to a good firm foam and not
let them hang around. This sweet
soufflé has a sweet chocolaty flavour.

2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon instant coffee powder
2 tablespoons plain flour
1 tablespoon low-fat spread
30g (1oz) soft brown sugar
210 ml (7 fl oz) milk
2 eggs, separated
2 eggs, separated
½ teaspoon icing sugar

1. Sift the cocoa, coffee and flour together. Put in a large saucepan with the low-fat spread, brown sugar and milk. Bring slowly to the boil, whisking until you have a smooth thick sauce.

2. Simmer for about half a minute and then remove and cool for 10 mins. Preheat oven to Gas Mark 5/190C/375F. Lightly grease the inside of a 600 ml (1 pint) soufflé dish with some low-fat spray.

3. Beat the egg yolks into the cocoa sauce. In a large, clean dry bowl, whisk the egg whites to a thick foam that will form and hold peaks when you lift the beaters up. Carefully fold the egg whites into the cocoa mixture, using a figure of eight movement. Spoon into the soufflé dish.

4. Bake for 20-25 mins, until the soufflé has risen and the centre is slightly wobbly. (Don’t open the oven door for the first 15mins of cooking and preferably not at all until the soufflé is done.)

5. Put the icing sugar in a small sieve and, as you pull the soufflé out of the oven, quickly sprinkle the sugar over the top. Serve immediately – a soufflé waits for no one.

By Bec

PICT0105

This is the most simple chocolate cake in the world, made just for one person.
I make it for a quick dessert or when I need chocolate
You’ll need:
4 Table spoons of Self-Raising flour
4 Tablespoons of Sugar
2 Tablespoons of cocoa
1 Egg
3 Tablespoons of Milk
3 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil
3 Tablespoons of Chocolate Chips (optional)
1 Coffee Mug
Here’s what you do:
1. Put all the dry ingredients into the mug and mix well
2. Crack the egg and add it to the mug. Be sure to mix it well to avoid any pockets of flour in the corner.
3. Pour in the milk and oil, mix well.
4. Add the chocolate chips if you’re using them and a splash of vanilla essence if you like.
5. Put the mug into the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on maximum power (microwaves will differ in heat)
6. Wait until the cake stops rising and sets in the mug
7. Run a knife around the side of the mug and tip the warm cake out onto a plate.
Now eat!
For an extra treat, drizzle some chocolate sauce over the cake.
