Chocolate Orange Souffles with Orange Whipped Cream


Chocolate Orange Soufflés with Orange Whipped Cream

Makes 6-8


Butter and sugar for coating the molds
¼ cup heavy cream
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped fine
2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier
Zest from 1 orange
3 egg whites, as room temperature
2 tablespoons sugar
Whipped Cream:
½ cup chilled heavy cream
1 tablespoon sugar    
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier    


Preheat oven to 375°F.  Butter six ½-cup individual soufflé dishes and dust them with sugar.  
Bring the cream to a simmer in a microwave or over low heat on the stove.  
Put the chocolate in a large heat-proof bowl and pour the hot cream over it; let stand one minute.  
Stir until smooth and beat in the egg yolks, one at a time.  Stir in Grand Marnier and orange zest.  
Set aside to cool slightly.
With an electric mixer, beat the egg white until soft peaks form.  
Gradually add 2 tablespoons of sugar.  
Fold one-fourth of the whites into the chocolate mixer to lighten it, then fold the rest of the whites into the chocolate.  
Spoon into the prepared dishes and put them on a baking sheet.  Cook until soufllés rise but are still a little soft in the center, about 15 minutes.

Whipped Cream:
Whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form; add sugar, orange zest, and Grand Marnier and beat until stiff.
Remove soufflés from the oven and serve immediately with the whipped cream.
