Imagine the most lucious red velvet cake you’ve ever tasted…. then try this decadent twist. A light and fluffy souffle, perfect for warmer days, or a light treat! I made these for a baby shower and they were gone in seconds!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom and sides of 6 (8 ounce) ramekins with shortening or butter. This is where you use the first measurement of sugar; sprinkle the greased ramekins with sugar, and shake out the excess. Set them aside on a baking sheet.
Microwave your chocolate in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval, until almost completely melted (about 2 minutes total). Then stir chocolate until it’s nice and smooth. Stir in 4 egg yolks (make sure the chocolate isn’t too hot), 1/3 cup sugar, milk, food coloring, and vanilla. Throw away the 5th yolk, or cook it up for breakfast.
Beat the 5 egg whites and salt on high speed with your mixer. Slowly add the 2 Tablespoons of sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold your egg whites into the chocolate mixture (1/3 at at time). GENTLY spoon this mixture into your ramekins. You’ll want to wipe the edge of the ramekins clean while also creating a small indentation around the edges – it helps the souffles rise!
Bake at 350F for 21-24 minutes or until the little babies rise and set!
Dust with powdered sugar, or top with Whipped Sour Cream, and serve immediately.
To make whipped sour cream, simply beat 3/4 cup whipping cream, 1/2 cup sour cream, and 2 Tablespoons sugar until pourable. Serve immediately.
Eggs guaranteed salmonella free are always available in Budapest grocery stores. I can vouch for it. But in some other locations the eggs may be of less reliable quality and therefore certain things—like homemade mayonnaise—are better left unmade. Mousse au Chocolat, however, need never be foregone, because the yolks in this recipe are cooked.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
