To serve four, use five teaspoons flour and double the remaining ingredients. Doubling the flour would make the base too heavy.
- cooking spray
- 4 1⁄2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons dutch process cocoa
- 2 tablespoons nonfat milk
- 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg white, large
- 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Coat 2 (6 ounce) ramekins with cooking spray; sprinkle each with 3/4 tsp sugar.
- Combine 2 T sugar, flour, cocoa, and milk in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook 2 minutes, stirring until smooth. Spoon chocolate mixture into a medium bowl; cool 4 minutes. Stir in vanilla.
- Place egg white in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until soft peaks form. Add remaining 2 T sugar, 1 tsp at a time, beating until stiff peaks form (do not overbeat). Gently stir 1/4 of egg white mixture into chocolate mixture; gently fold in remaining egg white mixture.
- Spoon mixture into prepared dishes. Sharply tap dishes 2 or 3 times to level. Place dishes on a baking sheet; bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until puffy and set.
- Sprinkle each souffle with 1/2 tsp powdered sugar. Serve immediately.
hmmm so good. I made mine low carb and sugar free. I used almond flour instead of flour, amond breeze unsweetened( which is an almond milk)instead of milk and 4 tbsp of xylitol in place of the sugar, with no dusting or sprinkling. very good thanks for sharing!
"Flour" confused me, didn't know whether to use self-raising or plain so went for self-raising. Apart from that I followed the recipe exactly. The chocolate mixture just stuck to the pan and was a real chore to mix. The final product wasn't what I would describe as a souffle at all. It was dense and not sweet enough in my opinion, although my mum did enjoy it with a splash of cream.
