chocolate soufflé

So I decided to start my blog with this delicious chocolate soufflé.
I never tried it before and it turned out pretty well...well, except for the part inside that was supposed to be liquid. 
But my oven got a bit too hot. 
Still it was all moist and fluffy and at least a little bit liquid on the inside.

Here is what you need:
4 soufflé baking dishes   
100g dark chocolate (60-70% cocoa)
50g butter
50g margarine
3 eggs
50g flour
90g sugar
10g vanilla sugar
salt and a squeeze of lemon
½Tsp cinnamon
preheat oven to 170°C

Grease and coat soufflé baking dishes with butter and sugar. 
Melt chocolate together with butter and margarine in a double boiler. 
Whisk melted chocolate with flour, sugar, vanilla sugar, and cinnamon until smooth.
Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites.
Add the egg yolks to the chocolate batter and whisk again until smooth.
Beat egg whites with pinch of salt and and squeeze of lemon.
Carefully fold egg whites into batter.

Fill the baking dishes with the batter. 
Bake them for 15-20 minutes at 170°C.
Be careful not to open the oven door while baking.
Carefully remove Soufflé from baking dish and serve immediately.

Delicious with vanilla ice cream, rasberry or mango sauce.

Like many other people I just love food.
I'm always curious about recipes, restaurants, wines and groceries.
I love junk food just as much as I love dry-aged beef and good wine to go with it.

I'm a chocolate addict and meat lover.

On this blog I will try to post everything that comes my way and is related to food.
No matter if it is good or bad.
This will be my public journal where I will share experiences and ideas.
