Easy Chocolate Souffle

So I found this easy individual chocolate souffles that only have 79 calories (and 0.6g of Fat) in Cooking Light. These are all ingredients that are usually on hand, so it is great to meet that craving or entertaining guests.

4 1/2 Tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 1/2 Tablespoons Dutch process cocoa
2 Tablespoons fat-free milk
1/4 Teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg white
1 Teaspoon powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Coat 2 (6 ounce) ramekins with cooking spray; sprinkle each with 3/4 teaspoon of sugar
3. Combine 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, flour, cocoa and milk in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook 2 minutes, stirring until smooth. Spoon chocolate mixture into a medium bowl; cool 4 minutes. Stir in vanilla.
4. Place egg white in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until soft peaks form. Add remaining 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form(do not overbeat). gently stir 1/4 egg mixture into chocolate mixture; gently fold in remaining egg white mixture. Spoon mixture into prepared dishes. Sharply tap dishes 2 or 3 times to level. Place dishes on a basking sheet, bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until puffy and set. Sprinkle each souffle with 1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar. Serve immediately.

Now of course I had to make a couple of changes. I used 2% milk (that is what we had). I also used sweetened cocoa because NerdDad doesn’t like things to dark chocolately. It was great!
