Zane's Chestnut Soufflé

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 cup unsweetened chestnut purée
  • 1/4 pound bittersweet chocolate
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cream
  • 1 tablespoon brandy
  • 4 egg whites
  • lightly sweetened whipped cream

In a small mixing bowl beat eggs yolks until thick and lemon colored, about 5 minutes; set aside. In a double boiler, melt chocolate; remove the heat, keeping it soft. In another small mixing bowl beat the chestnut purée, milk, and brandy until smooth. Beat in egg yolks until well combined. In a large mixer bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold the beaten whites into the soufflé base mixture. Turn into an un-greased 1 quart soufflé dish. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 35–40 minutes. Serve immediately. Top with whipped cream. Serves 4.
