Ingredients

  • 65g cream
  • 100g LINDT EXCELLENCE Roasted Sesame
  • 5g cocoa powder
  • 20g egg yolk (1 yolk of a large egg)
  • 5g corn flour (maizena)
  • 120g egg whites (4 whites of large eggs)
  • 40g castor sugar
  • 5g sesame seeds (for sprinkling)

Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, bring the cream to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the broken pieces of chocolate, stirring well to create a smooth chocolate paste. Add the cocoa powder and mix until smooth.
  2. In a small bowl combine the yolk and the corn flour mixing to a smooth paste. Add some of the chocolate paste to the egg yolk/maizena mix to temper in the two. Then add to the rest of the chocolate paste in the saucepan and return to a low heat to cook out for 30 seconds. Remove from the saucepan into a larger mixing bowl and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Place the egg whites into a clean bowl and whisk until soft peaks form, then start adding sugar. Fold in the meringue in two batches into the chocolate custard base until a smooth, runny batter is achieved. Be careful not to over mix and deflate your soufflé batter. Pour into well-greased 10cm mini cocottes to the top and level off evenly. Then using your thumb wipe the rim of the cocottes clean – there should be no residual mixture left, as this will bake quicker and prevent your soufflé from rising evenly. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and bake in a preheated oven at 200°C until risen, for approximately 10 minutes.
  4. Serve with pieces of Halva and a dusting of icing sugar.

LINDT MASTER CHOCOLATIER’S TIP

The hotter the oven the quicker the soufflé will rise, but the faster it will deflate. A more moderate high heat will ensure a soufflé with a nice even and stable rise.
