Formula : Chocolate Souffles w/ orange white chocolate sauce

Picture from Godiva.com

There are many variations for Classique chocolate souffles, this is one of them.
These can be made in advance, 1 hour before bake off. Serves 6. It is best to use a good quality European, or comparable chocolate. Recipe adapted from Vegetarian Times magazine.

  • 6 0z plain Callebaut or Guittard Chocolate
  • 5 1/2 ounce unsalted butter,cut into small pieces
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 2 Tbsp orange liqueur (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 3 Tbsp caster sugar

Generously butter six 2/3 cup ramekins. Sprinkle each with a little caster sugar & tap out the excess. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet.

In a heavy saucepan over a very low heat, melt the chocolate and butter, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat - let cool slightly, then beat in the egg yolks & orange liqueur. Set aside, stir occasionally.

Preheat oven to 425°F . In a clean, grease free bowl whisk egg whites slowly until frothy. Add cream of tartar, increase the speed of whisk until they form soft peaks. Gradually sprinkle over the sugar - 1 Tbsp at a time, whisking until the whites are stiff & glossy.

Stir a third of the whites into the cooled chocolate mixture to lighten it, then pour the chocolate mixture over the remaining whites. Using a rubber spatula or a large metal spoon, gently fold the same sauce into the whites. (don't worry if not completely blended) Spoon into the ramekins.

Bake Souffles for 10 -12 minutes until risen & set, but still slightly wobbly in the center.

Dust with icing sugar & decorate with currant sprig & white chocolate rose. Serve white chocolate separately.

  • icing sugar for dusting
  • sprig of red currants & white chocolate roses for garnish

For the white chocolate sauce:

Cream the white chocolate pieces into a small sauce pan. Place over a low heat & cook, stirring constantly until melted. Remove from heat, stir in the orange liqueur & orange zest . Pour into a serving jug & keep warm.



Great recipe - it sounds delicious but I wish I could be more successful when attempting to cook a souffle, they never end up looking as perfect as that picture.
