Chocolate Souffle Cake (Low Fat)

I’m a big time dessert lover — and eating traditional desserts made me BIG TIME! Or at least BIG! Having said that, let me assure you I didn’t lose 150 pounds (twice) by forgoing desserts. Living a healthy lifestyle is exactly that — a lifestyle — and I don’t want any part of a lifestyle that doesn’t include desserts as often as I feel like dessert.

This delicious low fat chocolate souffle recipe is a wonderfully decadent dessert, but with only 4% fat, you don’t need to save it for special occasions (although it’s certainly company worthy). It’s easy to make, so even if you’ve been “skerrrred” to make souffles before, no worries! I wouldn’t steer you wrong. This is EASY and DELICIOUS!

Serve with fresh berries and non-fat whipped cream. I use my ISO Whipped Cream Maker with skim milk, vanilla and a packet of Splenda (or real sugar if you prefer).

To serve four, use five teaspoons flour and double the remaining ingredients. Doubling the flour would make the base too heavy.
Yield 2 servings (serving size: 1 soufflé)

Cooking spray
4 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons Dutch process cocoa (use the best quality you can get your hands on)
2 tablespoons fat-free milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg white
1 teaspoon powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350°.
Coat 2 (6-ounce) ramekins with cooking spray; sprinkle each with 3/4 teaspoon granulated sugar.

Combine 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, flour, cocoa, and milk in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook 2 minutes, stirring until smooth. Spoon chocolate mixture into a medium bowl; cool 4 minutes. Stir in vanilla.

Place egg white in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until soft peaks form. Add remaining 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form (do not overbeat). Gently stir 1/4 of egg white mixture into chocolate mixture; gently fold in remaining egg white mixture. Spoon mixture into prepared dishes. Sharply tap dishes 2 or 3 times to level. Place dishes on a baking sheet; bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until puffy and set. Sprinkle each soufflé with 1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar. Serve immediately.
