This week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) recipe was chosen by Susan of She's Becoming DoughMessTic: Chocolate Souffle! This week's post is going to be short and sweet because I am short on time...
I have to admit that I was a bit intimidated by Susan's choice because I have never made a souffle before and have always heard about how temperamental they are. The recipe was actually rather simple. Heat some chocolate and sugar over a double boiler, add some milk and egg yolks, and then some whipped up egg whites. You just have to be careful folding in the egg whites so you don't deflate them too much. Who knew it was so simple? :)
Unfortunately I burned my souffles a bit, though they did rise quite nicely. I was in such a rush to photograph these that I forgot to dust them with some confectioner's sugar to pretty them up. I also didn't have any time to make a creme anglaise sauce, which would have been spectacular with these. So I'm afraid I have some mediocre photos to share with you this week :(
Thanks Susan, for picking this recipe. The souffles tasted great and I'm so glad I didn't chicken out of this week's challenge. I can't wait to try other souffle recipes now.

* Recipes notes:
- I halved the recipe and got 3 servings out of it.
- Turn on the oven light towards the end to check on your souffles to make sure they don't burn like mine did!
