- Soft-centered chocolate soufflé
- 5 ¼ ounce (150 g) dark chocolate, chopped
- 11 tablespoons (150 g) margarine
- 3 eggs
- 4 egg yolks
- 1 Cup plus 3 tablespoons (150 g) Passover powdered sugar
- ⅓ cup plus 2 teaspoons (45 g) potato starch
- ⅓ cup plus 4 teaspoons (45 g) unsweetened dark cocoa powder
- Strawberry coulis (optional)
- ⅔ cup (100 g) strawberries, hulled
- 4 teaspoons (20 ml) water
- 2 tablespoons (30 g) sugar
- In a food processor or with a hand blender, purée the strawberries, water, and sugar, and then strain through a sieve. Refrigerate and reserve for serving.
- Heat: Preheat the oven to 350°F. To prepare ramekins for baking, coat them with a layer of margarine and dust with unsweetened cocoa powder.
- Mix: Melt the chocolate over a saucepan of simmering water (bain-marie). Remove from heat, add margarine and mix well. Whisk the eggs and egg yolks into the chocolate mixture, stir to combine. In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar, potato starch and unsweetened cocoa powder, and add it to the chocolate mixture, stir to combine. Use a large spoon to scoop the chocolate batter into the molds.
- Bake: in the oven until the tops are set and coming away from the sides about 8 to 11 minutes. (15 to 18 min if using larger molds). Dust warm souffle with powdered sugar and decorate with strawberry coulis. I recommend serving with a scoop of parve vanilla ice cream!
