Valentine soufle

I made a chocolate souffle for valentine's day. I used Bittman's basic recipe. Egg yolks with sugar, egg whites beaten then baked together. Turned out great.

chocolate syrup

The syrup is chocolate milk, milk chocolate, corn starch, and sugar.

The batter is 6 eggs separated. The yolks where beaten with 1 cup of sugar till pale yellow and thick
the whites beaten with 1/4 cup of sugar, pinch of salt and a pinch of cream of tartar.

looking good

The ingredients (not the syrup) where then folded together and placed in buttered and sugared ramikins.

They take longer than you would think to rise... I was getting worried at 15 minutes, thinking I had screwed it up, but at 20 minutes...

The center is nice and creamy, and the edges crisp

You can add the syrup and enjoy... happy valentine's day.
