This One’s For You, Meg

Since I’ve been home, things haven’t been that exciting. Just going to school and riding my bike. School has been awesome, and I am learning a ton of stuff like this: how to make a fast, delicious, and not-too-bad-for-you dessert (maybe the only not-too-bad-for-you food item that we’ve made…).

Chocolate Souffles
Makes 6 servings (I use individual ramekins, but I’m sure you can do it in one big baking dish)

  • 8oz chocolate chips
  • 8 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  1. preheat oven to 400
  2. butter ramekins, then coat with sugar, discarding excess
  3. melt chocolate in a bowl over simmering water, then set aside
  4. in another bowl, over the same hot water mix egg whites, sugar and lemon until warm
  5. remove egg white mixture from heat and beat until firm peaks
  6. mix a little of the egg white into the chocolate, then gently fold in the rest
  7. pour into ramekins
  8. bake for 12 mins (don’t open the oven until it gets close to 12 mins) they should puff way up
  9. serve immediately (the longer they are out of the oven, the more they will “fall” but they still taste just as good!!)

I made a very delicious raspberry sauce by combining in a blender: frozen raspberries, a little water, and sweetener and lemon juice to taste.

Ben just ate the raspberry sauce plain. It was that good.
