Simple chocolate souffle

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
25 grams Cornflour
250 millilitres Milk
100 grams Good dark chocolate
50 grams Sugar
3 Egg yolks
5 Egg whites
1 tablespoon Extra sugar, caster if available.

It is a very light souffle, which doesn't sink *too* much when you dig into it. If any is left over it is still very fluffy and yummy when cold.

Mix cornflour to a thin paste with some of the milk. Put the remaining milk in a saucepan with the chocolate and sugar, and stir over a gentle heat until the chocolate melts and the sugar dissolves.

Add cornflour paste carefully and bring mixture to boil to thicken, stirring continuously, then remove from heat.

Beat in egg yolks one by one, and leave mixture to cool slightly.

(You can prepare in advance this far and if needed warm the mixture slightly before continuing.)

Beat egg whites until they begin to stand in soft peaks, then add extra sugar and beat until the mixture stands in stiff peaks but is not dry. Fold into chocolate mixture gently.

Immediately pour into greased and sugared 1 litre souffle dish (with a paper collar), and bake at 190 degrees celsius for 40 - 45 minutes.

Serve immediately.
