Chocolate coffee soufflés

Submitted by on March 1, 2011 – 2:46 pmOne Comment

This dessert is like a warm chocolate mousse with lots of Fairtrade ingredients. Indulgent yet ethical!


Serves 4

135g Divine 70% Dark Chocolate
125ml strong black Fairtrade coffee
3 large free range eggs
2 tablespoons of brandy
3 tablespoons Fairtrade caster sugar
icing sugar for dusting


1. Brush the inside of four soufflé dishes or ramekins with melted butter, and sprinkle with caster sugar. Set on a baking tray.
2. Break up the chocolate and put into a heavy-based pan with the coffee. Set over a low heat and stir with a wooden spoon, until melted.
3. Take the pan off the heat and beat the three egg yolks into the hot mixture so they cook and thicken it. Stir in the brandy.
4. The soufflé can be covered and kept at a cool room temperature for up to an hour at this point. Half an hour before serving, heat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas mark 7.
5. Put the five egg whites into the food mixer and whip until stiff. Add the caster sugar and beat 20 seconds longer or until the mixture looks glossy.
6. Gently heat the chocolate mixture until just hot to the touch then remove the pan from the heat. Stir in about a quarter of the whites just to loosen the mixture then add this mixture to the whites and carefully fold them together.
7. Spoon into the prepared dishes and bake at once in the heated oven for 7 to 9 minutes- the mixture should still be wobbly in the centre.
8. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve immediately.
