National Chocolate Soufflé Day, YouTubeTeam Virus, In the News, and Enjoy

National Chocolate Soufflé Day - Today is National Chocolate Soufflé Day!

Soufflés may be the only thing to rival the kind of lift many women achieve with gallons of hairspray. In addition, they taste wonderful.

The flavorful base is usually made with a French crème pâtissière (pasty cream), but the secret to this lightly baked cake is whipped egg whites. The name comes from a French verb, souffler, which literally means to "blow up" or "puff up," and that is exactly the magic that happens when you bake custard and egg whites together.

Your best bet for baking individual or even one large chocolate soufflé is the ramekin. When you're ready to take them out of the oven, it will be puffy and fluffy - and then deflate a little about ten minutes later. But, do not worry! It is supposed to do that.
