Hot Chocolate Souffle Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

75 g/3 oz butter or margarine
50 g/2 oz/0.5 cup plain (all-purpose) flour

15 ml/1 tbsp cocoa (unsweetened chocolate) powder
2.5 ml/0.5 tsp ground cinnamon
450 ml/0.75 pt/2 cups milk
4 eggs, separated
50 g/2 oz caster (superfine) sugar
15 ml/1 tbsp icing (confectioners') sugar

Method :

Melt the butter or margarine, stir in the flour, cocoa and cinnamon and blend well over a low heat. Stir in the milk, stirring continuously, until the sauce thickens. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly. Beat the egg yolks into the sauce. Whisk the egg whites lightly, then add the sugar and whisk again until they hold soft peaks. Fold into the sauce, then turn the mixture into a greased 1.2 liter/2 pt/5 cup soufflé dish with a collar of paper round the side. Stand the dish in a roasting tin (pan) and add enough water to come half-way up the side of the dish. Bake in a preheated oven at 190°C/375°F/gas mark 5 for 45 minutes until well risen. Sprinkle with the icing sugar and serve immediately.
