Author Notes: This recipe was inspired by ENunn's "Aunt Mariah's Lemon Sponge Cups". I loved ENunn's recipe so much, that I made all the time. Eventually, I got tired of the lemony flavor, so I began tweaking things and adding new ingredients. Finally, I came up with my masterpiece, a chocoholic's dream: Instead of using lemons, I substituted them for some mouth-watering chocolate with a hint of maple. The outer layer is slightly crusted, but the inside is soft, airy and incredibly rich, all at the same time. Enjoy! - The Good Cook
- 2 tablespoons Butter
- 1 cup Sugar
- 6 1/2 tablespoons Flour
- 1 1/2 cup Milk
- 3 Eggs, separated
- 1 pinch Salt
- 5 ounces of Your Favourite Chocolate, melted
- Preheat oven to 350. Melt the chocolate, either in a microwave or a double boiler.
- In an electric mixer or a large bowl, cream the butter until light and fluffy. Add the sugar, flour, salt, snd the melted chocolate. Mix until fully combined.
- In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks and then stir in the milk. Slowly add the yolks and milk to the first mixture.
- In another small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff, and carefully fold into the mixture. Then, pour into individual soufflé dishes or ramekins. Place each of the soufflé dishes in a pan of hot water and place in the oven. Bake for 40-50 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice-cream and/or fresh berries.
