IMBB 20: (Intentional) Fallen Soufflé

I do not claim to be an expert on soufflés but thus far, I enjoyed the ones I have eaten. Light and puffy, each bite seemed guilt free like I was just eating air. Thus far, all were the sweet sort. Given my liking for souffle, even I wonder why I do not attempt to make them at home. It is truly not because I am afraid of failure but rather, I believe souffles should be eaten a la minute and I am just not motivated enough to make it for myself. But now the challenge is set before me, to make and blog about my experience with making a soufflé, all in the name of another blogging event, Is My Blog Burning #20.

Fallen Chocolate Soufflé Torte



I did toy with the idea of a savory version for a minute but discarded that knowing that the sweet one would probably be more appropriate for anytime-snacking. This recipe came from Alice Medrich's Chocolate and the Art of Low-Fat Desserts (yes, again). There is a couple of tempting recipes but I decided to go for this one for portability's sake. It turned out beautifully, with the sunken look developing a few minutes after it came out of the oven to cool.

Since Ms Medrich did not specify the percentage of chocolate, I used my 61% dark chocolate. Perfect! The sweetness was just the right level; the cake was very moist, up to the point of being mushy and I think the cake could do with a few more minutes in the oven. Nonetheless, it was very light and the cake was devoured in minutes.

Thanks to Kitchen Chick for choosing yet another challenging theme. Check out the round-up there!

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at iherb.com.  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
