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.


Cat and Dog Treat Recipes

Cat Recipe

thought it might be nice to have a few recipes for homemade Cat treats seeing as how quite a few members have cats lol
I had a nightmare finding cornmeal when I first used these recipes and then I discovered that in UK we tend to use Polenta
These treats are not meant to replace cat food and should be fed sparingly. Cats aren’t really supposed to have a lot of grain in their diets, so use accordingly – as treats.
DIY cat treats Make your own cat treats with this cat-tested recipe. You could eat them too, but they taste a little bit weird. I guess that’s why most baked goods don’t call for tuna.
1 can tuna, including water
3/4 cup corn meal
3/4 wheat flour
1/3 cup water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shred up the tuna so that it forms a loose paste. Combine the tuna with the cornmeal, flour, and water. Roll out the mixture into a 1/4 thick sheet. Use a pizza cutter to cut 1/4 strips of dough, then cut the strips into little cubes of dough. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden and delicious. Serve with a garnish.
Store these treats in zip lock bag or airtight container for about a month. They’ll last even longer in the freezer

Dog Recipe

Although this is about dog stuff I have posted it here as it involves cooking these are just a couple of the simpler ones will post a few more later this afternoon when I can find them as at moment they are hiding on a disc somewhere lol
Remember these are treats and should only be given to to dogs occasionally I never allow mine to have more than a couple a day.

A couple of very important points :
Cheese Treats
4 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 tsp. garlic powder
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/4 cup shredded cheese
1 1/4 cup milk
Combine flour and garlic powder in a large bowl.
Gradually stir-in vegetable oil, cheese, beaten egg, milk and blend well. Roll-out dough to desired thickness. Cut-out treats and place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 25 minutes at 400°F.
Cool before storing. I tend to freeze them in small bags and just keep a bag at a time in the fridge.
Note: cooking time may vary depending upon thickness
Tuna Treats
• 2 6-oz. cans tuna in water, do not drain
• 2 eggs
• 1 to 1 ½ c. flour (rice flour is best, but any kind will do)
• 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
• parmesan cheese
Mash tuna and water in a bowl with a fork to get clumps out, then liquefy in blender or food processor. Add extra drops of water if needed to liquefy completely. Pour into bowl and add flour and garlic powder; consistency should be like cake mix. Spread into greased or sprayed pan; I find that a round pizza pan or square cake pan is perfect. Sprinkle with LOTS of parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes; edges will pull away and texture will be like putty. Use a pizza cutter and slice into teeny squares. These freeze beautifully.
