    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Lightly butter two 6-oz. ramekins and dust with granulated sugar, tapping out excess. Set the ramekins on a small baking sheet.
    2. 2
      Stir together the liquor or water and the espresso powder. Set aside and stir occasionally until the coffee is dissolved. Melt the chocolate and butter in a medium metal bowl over a pan of simmering water or in a microwave. Remove from the heat and whisk until glossy and smooth. Stir in the coffee mixture and the salt. Whisk in the egg yolks, one at a time. Add about one-third of the confectioners' sugar and whisk until well blended and smooth. Set aside.
    3. 3
      In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until they're very foamy and they're just beginning to hold soft peaks. Increase the speed to high and gradually sprinkle in the remaining confectioners' sugar. Continue beating until the peaks are firm and glossy. Spoon about one-quarter of the beaten whites into the chocolate mixture and whisk until blended. Add the remaining whites and gently fold them in until just blended. Pour evenly into prepared ramekins (the mixture will almost completely fill the ramekins). If you want to bake the soufflés within 24 hours, refrigerate them. (To refrigerate: Chill for about 30 minutes, and then cover in plastic and return to the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.) If you want to hold them for longer, freeze them according to the make-ahead tips below.
    4. 4
      Heat the oven to 400°F Unwrap the ramekins, set them on a baking sheet, and bake until they're puffed and risen about 1 inch above the ramekin, 15 minute The top will still be slightly sunken in the center; consider it a place to pop in a few berries or a dollop of whipped cream. Remove the soufflés from the oven and serve immediately.
    5. 5
      Make Ahead Tips: Put the filled ramekins into the freezer, uncovered, for 20 minute Then wrap each ramekin well in plastic and freeze for up to two weeks. To bake straight from the freezer, unwrap the ramekins and set on a small baking sheet or jellyroll pan. Let them sit for 20 minute while heating the oven to 400°F Bake on the baking sheet until puffed and risen about 1 inch above the ramekin, 18 minute Remove from the oven and serve immediately.

      I subscribe to Fine Cooking and have made these a number of times since they appeared there. They are fabulous little souffles. I always use cognac and Ghirardelli chocolate with spectacular results. For clarification, you do not have to chill the souffles for 30 minutes as the intro comments here would seem to suggest. The 30-minute chill time is part of the refrigeration instructions should you not be baking them right away. If you're baking immediately, just mix, pour and bake!

      Delicious! I didn't have the right size ramekins, so I put all the batter in a mini casserole dish, and baked it a few minutes longer. Not as pretty, but still tasted amazing! I will definately make this again!

      This was so good and so easy to make! I made it the day before and baked it the next day as per instructions. Will try to make it ahead and freeze for 2 weeks method next time...I just love a good recipe that can be made ahead of time!
