Ingredients

  • Dissolved butter, in order to grease

  • 1 tablespoon warm water
  • 1 tea spoon instant espresso granules
  • 50g butter
  • 35g (1/4 cup) cornflour
  • 70g (1/3 cup) caster sugar
  • 250ml (1 cup) milk
  • 150g dark cooking chocolates, finely chopped

Mocha sauce

  • 100g dark cooking chocolate, finely chopped
  • 80ml (1/3 cup) thickened cream
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules

Method

  • Step 1 Preheat oven to 190�C. Place a baking tray in the oven. Grease four 375ml (1/2-cup) capacity ovenproof souffle dishes with melted butter. Lightly dust with sugar. Combine the hot water and coffee in a jug.
  • Step 2

    Heat the butter in a saucepan over medium heat until foaming. Cook the cornflour and 3 tablespoons of sugar, stirring, for 2 minutes or until the mixture begins to come away from the side of the pan. Remove from heat. Gradually add half the milk, whisking with a balloon whisk until smooth. Gradually whisk in remaining milk until combined. Place pan over medium heat. Whisk for 3-4 minutes or until mixture boils and thickens. Whisk in the coffee mixture. Remove from heat. Whisk in chocolate until melted and combined.

  • Step 3 Add the egg yolks and stir until well combined. Transfer the chocolate mixture to a large bowl.
  • Step 4

    Use an electrical beater to beat the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until soft peaks form. Add the leftover sugar and beat until firm peaks form.

  • Step 5

    Add one-third of the egg white mixture to the chocolate mixture. Use a large metal spoon to fold until just combined. Repeat, in two more batches, with the remaining egg white mixture. Spoon the souffl� mixture into prepared souffl� dishes. Run your finger around the inside rim of each dish to remove any mixture.

  • Step 6 Place souffle dishes on preheated baking tray. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until puffed and just set.
  • Step 7

    Meanwhile, to make the mocha sauce, place the chocolates, cream and coffee in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until the chocolate melts and the mixture is easy.

  • Step 8

    Serve souffles with mocha sauce and double cream, if desired.
