Come Party With Me: Movie Night — Menu (Dessert)

What's more quintessentially French than a soufflé? After we've finished dinner at my French-themed movie night, I'll invite guests into the kitchen for chocolate soufflé — once the movie is over, of course. A soufflé is a glamorous dessert, the perfect finish to a leisurely dinner. Plus, warm chocolate is always divine on a cold Winter's night! Take a look at the recipe and


Chocolate Soufflé
From Gourmet magazine

1/3 cup sugar plus additional for sprinkling
5 oz. bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), chopped
3 large egg yolks at room temperature
6 large egg whites
Accompaniment: lightly-sweetened whipped cream
Special equipment: a 5 1/2- to 6-cup glass or ceramic soufflé dish

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously butter soufflé dish and sprinkle with sugar, knocking out excess.
  2. Melt chocolate in a metal bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove bowl from heat and stir in yolks (mixture will stiffen).
  3. Beat whites with a pinch of salt in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until they just hold soft peaks. Add 1/3 cup sugar, a little at a time, continuing to beat at medium speed, then beat at high speed until whites just hold stiff peaks.
  4. Stir about 1 cup whites into chocolate mixture to lighten, then add mixture to remaining whites, folding gently but thoroughly.
  5. Spoon into soufflé dish and run the end of your thumb around inside edge of soufflé dish (this will help soufflé rise evenly). Bake in middle of oven until puffed and crusted on top but still jiggly in center, 24 to 26 minutes. Serve immediately.

Serves 2-4.

Make Ahead: soufflé can be assembled up to 30 minutes before baking. Keep, covered with an inverted large bowl (do not let bowl touch soufflé), at room temperature.
