Chocolate Souffle - In a Healthier Way

Something to boost up my energy before I start moving some stuff over to the new place.

Chocolate Souffle-

Ingredients (For One Portion):

1/4 cup of butter
1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
1/6 cup of sugar (you can mix together both the granulated sugar and brown sugar depend on how you like it)
Few drops of vanilla extract
2 oz bitter sweet chocolate (I used 65% dark chocolate)
Small pinch of all purpose flour
1 scoop of extra rich vanilla ice cream


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
People usually set it to 375, I don't know, somehow mine is 450.

First, brush some butter and sprinkle the flour on the souffle cup.
So it won't stick if you would like to pour the cake out later on.

Melt the chocolate and butter on the plate - while the plate is set above a saucepan with simmering water. Or just use sauce pot if you have it.
Remember to stir it constantly, you don't want the chocolate to be burned and sticking on the plate.
Remove from heat after it's melted.

In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs till kinda fluffy.
Add the sugar,
Keep whisking until everything blends together.
Add few drops of vanilla extract and pour in the chocolate,
Mix mix and mix.

Pour the mixture into the souffle cup,
Put the cup on the baking sheet and ~ into the oven for about 10 mins?
I'm not sure about the time so remember to check constantly,
When the souffle is rising and turns dark-brown color,
That means it's ready to go.
Don't worry if it rises above the cup,
It's normal.

Topped with vanilla ice cream,
Garnish with chocolate sauce and mint leaves if desired.

Are you ready for morning dessert?

Cindy's Rating: 6 (My roommate gave me 7 though.)

And why is it healthy?

Cz I used organic butter, organic eggs, low fat ice cream (even though it says rich on the box), low fat chocolate sauce, organic flour, and organic sugar.

Organic is good for you.
