1. Red Velvet Soufflés with Whipped Sour Cream
These soufflés will taste just as good as they look. Southern Living’s recipe, which yields 6 servings, creates a stunning dessert centerpiece that is extraordinarily tasty.
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 (4-ounce) bittersweet chocolate baking bar, chopped
- 5 large eggs, separated
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1 tablespoon red liquid food coloring
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- Powdered sugar
- Whipped sour cream
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease bottom and sides of 6 (8-ounce) ramekins with butter. Lightly coat with 3 tablespoons sugar, shaking out excess. Place on a baking sheet. Microwave chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl on high for 1 minute to 75 seconds or until melted, stirring at 30-second intervals. Stir in 4 egg yolks, ⅓ cup sugar, and next 3 ingredients. Beat 5 egg whites and salt at high speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until foamy.
Gradually add 2 tablespoons sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold egg white mixture into chocolate mixture, one-third at a time. Spoon into prepared ramekins. Run tip of thumb around edges of ramekins, wiping clean and creating a shallow indentation around edges of mixture. This will help the souffles rise. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 24 minutes or until souffles rise and are set. Dust with powdered sugar; serve immediately with whipped sour cream.
