Microwave Chocolate Soufflé
I just love french food names. They sound so classy, right? Soufflé (read soo-fley), Baguette, Creme Brulée, éclairs etc. Now, I may not be the classiest girl you have ever come across (I love my baggy jeans) but I do love making food that has such a cool name! 😀
Soufflé, is a light baked cake made with egg yolks, beaten egg whites and combined with other ingredients to give a sweet or savory dish. I don’t use eggs. And the idea of a savory soufflé is weird. Hence, the alternative. And surprisingly, even the microwave EGGLESS version tastes as authentic as a rehular souffle. Good stuff, huh?! 😀
HOT CHOCOLATE SOUFFLE RECIPE | Microwave Chocolate Soufflé
(Print this recipe)
Prep Time: 5 min
MW Time: 2 min
1/4 cup Milk
1/2 cup Cream Cheese (you can try soft paneer too)
1 TBsp Cocoa Powder
3 TBsp Sugar (adjust as per taste)
1 TBSp All purpose flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
4-5 tsp grated Chocolate (or as much as you want)
3 tsp Fresh Cream (I used heavy cream)
1. I used a blender. You could mix all these by hand too. Blend together cream cheese, milk, cocoa powder, sugar, flour, baking powder and vanilla essence to a smooth mixture.
2. In a bowl, pour the mixture.
3. Add fresh / heavy cream and beat with a whisk well for 5-6 minutes. The idea is to incorporate air into the batter.
4. Add in grated chocolate and mix lightly (fold it in)
5. Pour it in a Microwave-safe bowl. (the bowl should be half full only)
6. MW on high for 2 minutes (if need be another 30 seconds)
Sprinkle powdered sugar and serve hot!
