Easy Chocolate Soufflé

Rich, chocolatey and under 300 calories! Recipe courtesy of the Incredible Egg. 


1/2 c. sugar, divided
1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp. salt
1 c. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
4 egg whites, room temperature
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
4 egg yolks


1Heat oven to 350°F. Mix 1/4 c. sugar, the cocoa powder, flour and salt in medium saucepan; gradually whisk in milk until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Stir in vanilla. Remove from heat.
2Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in mixer bowl with whisk attachment on high speed until foam, beating constantly, Add remaining 1/4 c. sugar, 2 Tbsp. at a time, beating after each addition until sugar is dissolved. (Rub a bit of mixture between thumb and forefinger; it should feel completely smooth.) Continue beating until whites are glossy and stand in soft peaks.
3Stir egg yolks into reserved sauce until blended. Gently but thoroughly fold yolk mixture into whites until no streaks of white remain. Carefully pour into ungreased 1-1/2 to 2-qt. soufflé dish. For a "top hat", hold metal spatula upright and make a ring in top of the soufflé mixture, 1 in. from side of dish and 1 in. deep, if desired.
4Bake in 350°F oven until soufflé is puffy, delicately browned and shakes slightly when oven rack is moved gently back and forth, 30 to 40 min. Serve immediately
