Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp butter salted
  • 1 1/2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 2 yolk
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 pinches cream of tartar
  • 8 tbsp cold full fat milk
  • 3 sugar
  • 1/4 tsp instant coffee
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • powder sugar to garnish
  • cocoa powder to put around the ramekins

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Spray the ramekins with cooking spray. Brush the sides and the bottom with cocoa powder; cover the bottom of the ramekins and the sides. rotate the ramekins until cocoa powder.
  • Place chocolate chips in a stainless steel mixing bowl. Place bowl over a pan of about 2 cups hot water over medium low heat. Do not let water boil or come to a simmer. Don't let the water touch the bottom of the stainless steel mixing bowl.
  • Melt butter and the chocolate chips in a skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle in flour. Whisk until flour is incorporated into butter and mixture thickens, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to low.
  • Whisk in cold milk until mixture becomes smooth and thickens, 2 or 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat. Transfer mixture to bowl with melted chocolate. Add salt, coffee, and vanilla extract. Mix together thoroughly. Add egg yolk to the chocolate mixture and mix well.
  • Leave bowl above the hot (not simmering) water to keep chocolate warm while you whip the egg whites.
  • Place 2 egg whites in a mixing bowl; add cream of tartar. Whisk until mixture begins to thicken and a drizzle from the whisk stays on the surface about 1 second before disappearing into the mix, 2 or 3 minutes. Add sugar and whisk in. Whisk in a bit more sugar about 15 seconds. Continue whisking until mixture is about as thick as shaving cream and holds soft peaks, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Transfer egg whites to chocolate mixture. Mix until egg whites are thoroughly incorporated into the chocolate, 1 or 2 minutes. Gently fold into the chocolate with a spatula, lifting from the bottom and folding over. Stop mixing after the egg white disappears. Divide mixture between 4 prepared ramekins. Place ramekins on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 13 minutes, sprinkle some powder sugar on top, serve it hot.
