How to make it
- MethodFor the dishes
- Preheat oven to 180C/gas 4.
- Brush 8 ramekins (8cm in width, 4-5cm in height) with the softened butter in upward strokes, from the base to the rim.
- Chill the dishes for 5 minutes, then as an insurance policy so the souffe doesn't stick to the dish, apply a second coat as before.
- Sprinkle a little grated chocolate into each dish, tilting and rolling the dishes around to line them with an even layer of chocolate.
- He also said one could sprinkle inside each dish with some sugar too
- Cream patissiere:
- slake the corn flour with a little of the milk, then gradually add the rest of the milk until you have a smooth mixture.
- Pour into a small pan, and slowly bring to the boil, stirring continuously.
- Boil for 30 seconds then off the heat, add the chocolate and whisk until smooth.
- Beat in the egg yolks until smooth before transferring to a bowl to cool.
- Egg white mixture
- In an artisan mixer, whisk the egg whites to soft peaks.
- Gradually start to add in the sugar, whisking well in between each addition.
- Once all the sugar has been added, continue to whisk until you have a thick and glossy mixture.
- Add one third of the egg whites into the chocolate cream patisserie mixture and mix well.
- Now add in the remaining egg white and gently fold into the mix.
- Do not over work the mixture as it will become too hard and stiff.
- Divide the mixture between the ramekins.
- Level the surface with a palate knife then bake for 6-8 minutes, or until well risen and with a slightly wobbly centre.
- Remove from the oven and dust with the remaining cocoa powder.
- Serve immediately with a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream.
- When cut into, these will have a chocolate runny center!
