Red Velvet Soufflés with Whipped Sour Cream

Michael Lee West of Rattlebridge Farm is having her Mystery Ingredient Club for February and the ingredient is one that many of us share a love for and that is Chocolate!  I found this recipe in my 2012 Southern Living Cooking for Christmas. Do not let the word "soufflé" intimidate you. This is a wonderful recipe and the best part is that it can be prepared and frozen a week in advance!!



1 T.  butter
3 T.  sugar
1 (4-oz.) bittersweet chocolate baking bar, chopped (I used Ghiradelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Bar)
5 large eggs, separated
1/3 cup sugar
3 T.  milk
1 T.  red liquid food coloring
1 t.  vanilla
Pinch of salt
2 T.  sugar

Whipped Sour Cream

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of 6 (8-oz.) ramekins with butter. Lightly coat with 3 T. sugar, shaking out excess. Place on baking sheet.

2.  Microwave chocolate in a large microwave safe bowl at HIGH 1 minute to 1 minute and 15 seconds or until melted, stirring at 30 second intervals. Stir in 4 egg yolks, 1/3 cup sugar and next 3 ingredients. (Discard or save the remaining egg yolk.)

3.  Beat 5 egg whites and salt at high speed with a heavy duty electric mixer until foamy. Gradually add 2 T. sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold egg white mixture into chocolate mixture, one-third at a time. Spoon into prepared ramekins. Run tip of thumb around edges of ramekins, wiping clean and creating a shallow intention around edges of mixture. This will help the soufflés rise.

5. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-24 minutes or until soufflés rise and are set. Dust with powdered sugar; serve with Whipped Sour Cream.

NOTE:  To bake frozen souffles, remove from freezer and  proceed to step 5. No additional time is needed.


Whipped Sour Cream

3/4 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup sour cream
2 T. sugar

Beat together all ingredients at medium speed with a heavy duty electric mixer for 45 seconds or until lightly whipped and pourable. Serve immediately.


Yes, I enjoyed every bite!

  3. Oh Kitty, this looks and sounds heavenly. I've always been intimidated by souffles; I've never tried to make one. This really makes me want to give it a try. :-D What a beautiful dessert to serve for Valentine's Day! I love the photograph of you and Rich. Hope your week is filled with love and good thoughts.

    XOXO,

  5. I have never ever made a souffle and perhaps that needs remedying. I smiled to see the photo of you and your beloved with that phrase "Our Love is Never Ending." Love does go on and on, doesn't it?!

  29. I keep getting kicked off as a follower!!! I wondered why I wasn't receiving your posts, thinking that perhaps you were taking a blog break. Popped over just now to see you've been posting all along! Ugh! Technology!!! Makes me sick sometimes!!! Anyhoooo...just re-subscribed. Hope it sticks this time. That's been happening to me a lot lately. I'm afraid I'm missing a lot of super posts just because the Internet can't get its act together. :-(

    Maybe not intimidating to YOU, but it intimidates the heck outta me! Looks fantastic, and apparently it tastes that way, too!!! :-) :-) :-) Have a happy week, sweet Kitty!
