Chocolate Grand Marnier Souffle with Chocolate Sauce



6 tablespoons butter, divided

½ cup sugar

5 tablespoons all purpose flour

1 cup milk

1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons Grand Marnier

2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, melted

3 ounces squares bittersweet chocolate, melted

¼ teaspoon salt

7 egg yolks, lightly beaten (save egg whites)

7 egg whites

1 teaspoon vanilla paste


Directions for Soufflé:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place a stainless steel bowl over pot of simmering water, melt both types of chocolate.
  3. Coat the bottom and sides of a 2-1/2 quart soufflé dish with 2 tablespoons butter, sprinkle bottom and sides evenly with ½ cup sugar. Tap out excess sugar; reserve sugar for later use.
  4. In a medium saucepan, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter. Stir in flour and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture begins to bubble.  Add milk, Grand Marnier, melted chocolates and salt.  Cook over medium-low heat until mixture thickens, stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool for 10 minutes.  Whisk in eggs one at a time and vanilla paste.
  5. IN bowl of electric mixer, fitted with whisk attachment, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add reserved sugar, beating until stiff (I will show you trick).  Fold whites in chocolate mixture 1/3 at a time using the whisk attachment on mixer.  Gently spoon into prepared soufflé dish.  Place soufflé dish in a baking pan.  Fill pan with 1-inch of very warm water..  Bake for 55 minutes.  DO NOT USE CONVECTION HEAT.  Serve immediately with chocolate sauce.
