Chocolate Raspberry Souffle Recipe

This Chocolate Raspberry Souffle recipe involves folding stiff egg whites into a chocolate mixture. It makes a delicious dessert. These individual souffles may sink when you remove them from the oven, but that is natural.

Trivia: According to Wikipedia, souffles can be made in containers of all shapes and sizes but it is traditional to make souffles in "soufflé cups" or ramekins.

Tip: For best results, always use good quality chocolate.

Chocolate Raspberry Souffle Recipe

Ingredients

1 pint raspberries
8 eggs
4 ounces of sugar
3 ounces of flour
8 ounces good-quality bittersweet chocolate
2 ounces of Chambord liqueur (black raspberry liqueur)
2 tablespoons of butter
Sugar for dusting ramekins

This recipe makes six individual souffles.

Method

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

Puree the raspberries and strain them. I often prefer to use a hand blender for small blending tasks like this.

Chop the chocolate into pieces.

Separate the eggs.

Melt the butter.

Using a heavy pan, heat the raspberry puree until it is lukewarm. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks with three ounces of the sugar. Next, whisk in the flour and the raspberry puree. Return this mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat. Stir constantly and do not allow this to boil. Cook until the raspberry custard is thick.

Remove the custard from the stove and stir in the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate melts completely, then stir in the liqueur. Cover this with plastic or saran wrap so a skin does not form.

Melt the butter and butter six ramekins or souffle dishes. Dust with sugar.

Using a good mixer, whip the egg whites until they form stiff peaks, adding the remaining sugar gradually.

Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the chocolate custard.

Spoon this light and fluffy mixture into the ramekins, filling to 1/4 inch of the top. Place in the oven immediately and bake.

These individual chocolate raspberry souffles should bake for approximately twenty minutes. They are done when they are risen, golden on top and have dry-looking edges.

The chocolate raspberry souffles may fall when removed, but no worries. They taste great.
