Chocolate Souffles with strawberry sauce

chocolate souffle

HEY HEY its ma birthday!! 🙂 and because it is… I will be making two desserts to celebrate this. One was on the actual day and one for my party this weekend.

So after Mike made my favourite dish for dinner (spaghetti Carbonara… how Italian!) I started making these beauties.

I apologise in advance that there are no pictures of the procedure as I usually do, but I was more focused on getting ready and eaten 😛

 

INGREDIENTS ( this can make either 6normal or 3 huge which is what I made)

500gr strawberries + 2 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp water

butter to grease the ramekins

30gr butter

4 1/2 tablespoons caster sugar

2 tablespoons plain flour

160ml (2/3 cup) milk

125gr dark chocolate, chopped

3 eggs, separated

For the Sauce: Put three strawberries aside, the nicest looking ones, and chop the rest. Put them in a saucepan with the sugar and water and let it reduce. This should take 20-30 minutes on low heat. Cut the other strawberries in half. Cut the top white part off but in a triangle, to give the strawberry a heart shape.

For the star of the dish: Turn oven on 180°. Grease the ramekins and dust with some of the sugar.

Melt butter in a saucepan and then mix the flour in with a wooden spoon. When it starts bubbling, remove from heat and stir in the milk gradually. Place on the heat again and stir for 1-2 minutes till it starts boiling.

Stir in the chocolate and the remaining sugar. Transfer in a bowl and mix in the egg yolks.

Whisk the egg whites till still and with a spatula or metal spoon, fold them in the chocolate mixture.

Pour in the ramekins. Fold a cloth and lightly bang the ramekins on it so to let the air bubbles escape, making the soufflé rise evenly.

Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

Mine were slightly tilted, probably didn’t make them as even as I should’ve but they tasted pretty good.

Make a hole in the middle of the soufflé with a spoon and pour in the strawberry sauce. Once you’ve done that, you can place a strawberry heart on it 🙂
