Dark Chocolate Souffle
As a family favorite, this recipe never fails to impress, and if you have kids, little hands are always eager to help stir or lick the spoon. Simple enough to create on the fly, this recipe yields something between the traditional airy French souffle and the American adaptation of a molten lava cake. The sucanat twist on the traditional sugar lends a hint of molasses flavor while the addition of the cocoa powder gives it the darker note . If it's dark, sweet and gooey, we're game, and you're Valentine will surely fall head over heels.

The nice thing about this recipe is that you can easily make the batter ahead, cover and store in the refrigerator overnight, and bring out to cook before serving. Just remember to allow the batter to return to room temperature before cooking for best results. This dish is best served warm right out of the oven with a spoonful of vanilla bean ice cream or coconut whipped cream.
