STONEWARE

Quality Performance

Le Creuset stoneware is perfectly suited to baking pies, quiches, casseroles and more. It heats evenly, to prevent hot spots and cook food in a uniform fashion. The result is a golden brown crust with fully cooked ingredients throughout.


Superior Finish

The smooth, impermeable glaze resists staining and easily releases foods, making cleanup a breeze.


Versatile

Stoneware is safe for the oven, broiler and microwave. And because it resists stains and odors, it’s ideal for storing foods in the refrigerator or freezer.

Almond Dark Chocolate Souffle

Created for the 90th Anniversary Petite Cocotte

Ingredients

 

  • Butter and sugar for dusting the cocotte
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • Small pinch of salt
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Softly whipped cream, slivered almonds, raspberries and mint for topping

 

Preparation

 

Position a rack in the bottom third of the oven. Preheat oven to 400 F.

 

Butter a 2 1/2-cup cocotte and dust with sugar, tilting to evenly coat the bottom, sides and rim.

 

In a small heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour, stirring constantly until completely smooth and incorporated. Pour in the almond milk in a thin stream, while whisking constantly. Continue to cook over medium heat, whisking all the while, until the sauce thickens, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat from heat and whisk in the almond extract and salt.

 

Scrape the mixture into a large bowl. Stir in the melted chocolate. Drop in the egg yolks one at a time, whisking well after each addition.

 

With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until soft peaks begin to form. Sprinkle in the sugar, then continue to whip until the eggs are shiny and stiff. Use a silicone spatula to fold a quarter of the egg whites into the chocolate base.

 

Fold in the remaining whites in two additions, being careful not to deflate. Pour into the buttered cocotte.

 

Set the cocotte on a baking sheet and place in the oven. Immediately lower the heat to 375 F. Bake until puffy and very slightly jiggly in the center, about 25 to 30 minutes. Serve immediately with whipped cream, slivered almonds, raspberries and mint.
