Healthycooking's picture
Ingredients
  Non stick cooking spray 1 Tablespoon
  Instant espresso coffee powder/1 teaspoon instant coffee powder 1 Teaspoon
  Granulated sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Unsweetened cocoa powder 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  All purpose flour 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Egg yolks 2
  Egg whites 4
  Vanilla 1 Teaspoon
  Cream of tartar 1⁄8 Teaspoon
Directions

1. Lightly coat eight 4- to 6-ounce ramekins with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl stir together the 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and the espresso powder. Sprinkle on the side and bottom of each dish. Place in a shallow baking pan; set aside.
2. In a medium saucepan stir together 1/2 cup of the granulated sugar, the cocoa powder, flour, and salt. Gradually stir in milk. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Remove from heat. Slightly beat egg yolks. Slowly add chocolate mixture to egg yolks, stirring constantly.
3. In a large mixing bowl combine egg whites, vanilla, and cream of tartar. Beat with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add remaining 1 /4 cup granulated sugar, beating on high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Gently fold chocolate mixture into egg whites. Spoon into prepared dishes.
4. Bake in a 350° oven about 25 minutes or until a knife inserted near centers comes out clean. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.
