Dark Chocolate Soufflés with Hazelnut Cream Recipe

Angus Fergusson

 

Hmmm I love soufflés!  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.

 

What You Will Need:

FOR SOUFFLÉS:

–   1 tsp butter

–   5 Tbsp of sugar

–   2 100g package of 70% dark chocolate, finely chopped

–   1/3 cup of cream

–   1 tsp vanilla extract

–   3 eggs, separated

–   3 egg whites

FOR HAZELNUT CREAM:

–   1/2 cup of cream

–   2 Tbsp hazelnut liqueur

 

What You Will Need to do:

1.   Preheat your oven to 375°F.

2.   Butter the inside of 6 ramekins that hold about 1/2 cup each.  Dust with 2 Tbsp sugar, tilting cups to coat evenly, then tap out any excess sugar.  Arrange ramekins on a large baking sheet.

3.   Fill a medium saucepan with about 1“ of water.  Bring to a simmer over medium-low.

4.   Combine chocolate with 1/3 cup cream and vanilla in a large heatproof bowl. Set bowl over saucepan, covering saucepan completely.  Stir often until chocolate is melted, about 3 to 4 minutes.  Remove from heat, and let cool slightly.

5.   Beat 6 egg whites in a medium bowl, using an electric mixer on high, until soft peaks form when beaters are lifted, about 2 minutes.  Gradually beat in remaining 3 Tbsp sugar until stiff peaks form when beaters are lifted, about 2 minutes.  Set aside.

6.   Using same electric mixer (no need to wash beaters), beat 3 egg yolks in a medium bowl until pale and thickened, about 3 minutes.  Stir 1/2 cup chocolate mixture into yolks.  Fold in remaining chocolate mixture.

7.   Stir a quarter of egg whites into chocolate mixture until blended.  Gently fold in remaining whites.  Pour or ladle mixture into prepared ramekins until full.

8.   Bake in centre of oven until soufflés are puffed and tops are firm to the touch, 10 to 12 minutes.  Sprinkle with salt.

9.   Beat 1/2 cup cream until stiff peaks form when beaters are lifted.  Beat in liqueur.  Serve with soufflés.

About Dino
There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
