This treat gets its rich flavor from cocoa powder, which is fat-free
For the Chocolate Souffle:
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1/2 cup 2% milk
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 4 eggs whites, at room temperature
- 1/8 teaspoon cream of Tartar
- 4 teaspoons sugar
- 3 egg yolks, at room temperature
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- Cooking spray
For the Raspberry Sauce:
- 1 pint fresh raspberries
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sift powdered sugar, cocoa, and flour into a double boiler. Add milk and water and whisk until creamy over medium heat. Continue to gently whisk mixture, without stopping, for about 8 to 10 minutes or until it begins to thicken. Remove pan from heat and set aside.
- In a mixer, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until peaks begin to form. Slowly add sugar and continue to beat until still peaks form. Set aside. Blend egg yolks and almond extract into chocolate mixture. Fold in half the egg white mixture, then fold in the remaining half.
- Spoon batter into eight 10-ounce ramekins (mini souffle dishes) spritzed with cooking spray, leaving a 1/2-inch space at the top. (You can refrigerate uncooked souffle at this point for up to 24 hours before baking.) Place ramekins on a baking sheet and bake for 17 minutes or until souffles are puffy but still jiggle a little in the center.
- Meanwhile, blend raspberries in a food processor. Stir in sugar and lemon juice. Spoon sauce over each souffle and serve.
