My first souffle, people!
This post will be short and sweet, because I have a lot of cooking in my future (meaning things I am very far behind on). Mainly, to give myself a bit of street cred (HOLLA!), I'm cooking through CIA Baking and Pastry Book and I have lots of breads in my near future right now.
Badass. I know. Watch out for me on the street, I'll be wielding a French Baguette like no other.
So I just whipped up (HA) Dorie's Chocolate Souffle and added a bit of a hint of fall flavors by adding some chai spices (which are my favorite).
I melted some Valhorna 70%, whipped a couple of egg whites, mixed the two together, popped that bad boy in the oven, made my photo shoot "set" (seriously, I need better photo backgrounds/items/lighting), set up my camera, heard the buzzer, ran to the kitchen (really, which is only about 20 feet away), grabbed my souffles, ran back, set them up on the plate, got my camera and...
They had sunken. Bastards! Ruining my photo shoot. They were so tall and pretty. Now they were so short and flat. These were not the models I had cast! Imposters!
Tasty imposters, but imposters nonetheless.
Check out Susan of She's Becoming Doughmesstic for the recipe (and you'll love her site. Talk about a badass baker!) and check out the rest of TWD for some more steaming hot chocolatey models! Or else I'll beat you down with a Pullman loaf.
