Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Spiced Dark Chocolate Souffle

I wanted to try making my first souffle, so I found a chocolate souffle recipe and tweaked it a bit.  This is the result.

5 lg Eggs, Room Temperature
4 t  Sugar3/4 c  Sugar1/2 c  Special Dark Cocoa Powder6 T  Flour1 t  Cinnamon1/4 t  Salt3/4 c  1% Milk3/4 c  Low Fat Half And Half2 T  Butter1 1/2 t  Vanilla

Separate eggs.  Put egg yolks and whites in separate, large mixing bowls.

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a 2 quart souffle dish with cooking spray and lightly coat with 4 tsp sugar.  Set aside.

In a small saucepan, combine the cocoa, flour, salt, cinnamon and remaining sugar.  

Gradually whisk in milk.  

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  

Cook and stir 1 - 2 minutes longer or until thickened.  Whisk in butter.

Add a small amount of the mixture to the egg yolks, mixing constantly.  

Continue to add small amounts until all of the chocolate mixture is blended with the egg yolks.  Add vanilla.  Set aside.

In another large bowl, beet egg whites until stiff peaks form.  

With a spatula, stir 1/4 of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until to white streaks combined.  

Fold in remaining egg whites and transfer to prepared dish.

Bake for 40 - 45 minutes or until the top is puffed and center appears set.  Serve immediately.
