Shula’s Steakhouse Recipe
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup sugar + 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 egg, beaten
4 egg yolks, divided
1 1/4 cups half and half
3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup egg whites, room temperature (about 4)
single serving ramekins
melted butter for ramekins
granulated sugar for ramekins
To Make Souffle Base Mix: Combine flour, cornstarch, 1/4 cup sugar, egg, and 2 egg yolks in a medium stainless bowl. Whisk to combine; set aside.
In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan, bring half and half just to the boil. Slowly add the hot half and half to the egg mixture, stirring constantly. Once combined return to saucepan and place back on stove. Cook over medium low heat, stirring constantly, and bring to a boil; remove from heat.
In a separate bowl combine the chocolate and remaining 2 egg yolks. Slowly add the hot pastry cream mixture to the chocolate and egg yolks, continue stirring until the chocolate is completely melted and mixture is smooth. Cool mixture slightly.
To Prepare Souffle: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place egg whites and 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat at medium speed for about 5 to 7 minutes or until stiff peaks form, being careful not to over mix.
Fold the whipped egg whites into the chocolate mixture in 2 parts: Half of the mixture to loosen/lighten the base and the remaining gently fold in lightly making sure to incorporate well.
With a pastry brush, coat souffle dish with whole butter. Place 1 tablespoon of sugar in ramekin dish, coat and discard excess sugar. Ladle the souffle mix into souffle dish, gently tap dish on hard surface to remove / disperse excess air pockets. Bake for 15-16 minutes or until done.
NOTE: 3 ounces base plus 6 ounces whipped egg whites = 1 Souffle.
