30DOB Days 12&13: Favorite Style of blogging and A Recipe I Recently Tried

OK so this is going to be a couple of posts rolled into one. I feel they are both similar and so they fit well together. I have been so busy this weekend with work, church, and studying so I had absolutely no motivation and really no time to blog.

I think this one is obvious. My favorite thing to blog about is food :) I love posting recipes and photos of food that  I've tried. It's one of my many passions and I love sharing good food with people. 

Here's the latest recipe I've tried. Let me tell you it was AMAZING and also one of my April goals!!

Chocolate Souffle

3 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cups plus 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup boiling water
2 egg yolks
2 tspn vanilla
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
8 egg whites- room temp
1/2 tspn cream of tartar
6 peices of dark chocolate candy -I used kisses
2-3 tablespoons powdered sugar

Position oven rack in bottom 1/3 of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees. Spray the inside of 6 10oz ramekins, or oven proof baking cups, with non stick cooking spray and sprinkle with sugar to coat evenly. 

In large bowl, place chopped chocolate, cocoa, and 3/4 cup sugar. 

Whisk in the boiling water. When chocolate is completely melted, whisk in egg yolks and vanilla. Then stir in the flour. Set aside.

Combine egg whites with cream of tartar in a medium mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add in 1/4 cup sugar and beat on high speed until stiff peaks form. 

Fold about 1/3 of the chocolate mixture into the egg whites. Fold in remaining chocolate mixture in 2 additions. Divide batter into prepared ramekins. 

Drop dark chocolates into the middle of each souffle just before baking. 

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the top has formed a nice crust and the sides appear cake-like. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Dig in immediately!!!!
