 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   30      g             cornflour
   30      g             ground almonds
  185      ml            milk
    1      tbsp          strong black coffee
   75      g             dark chocolate -- broken into pieces
    2      tsp           caster sugar
    2                    egg yolks
    1      tbsp          coffee flavoured liqueur
    4                    egg whites
    1      tbsp          brown sugar
    1      tbsp          icing sugar -- sifted
 
 1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Sift the cornflour and almonds 
 together into a bowl and make a well in the centre.
 
 2. Place the milk and coffee in a saucepan and bring to the boil over a 
 medium heat. Slowly whisk the milk mixture into the almond mixture and 
 continue whisking until smooth. Return mixture to saucepan and bring to 
 the boil over a medium heat, stirring constantly. As soon as the mixture 
 comes to the boil, remove pan from heat.
 
 3. Stir chocolate and caster sugar into the mixture and continue stirring 
 until chocolate melts. Whisk in the egg yolks and liqueur, cover, then set 
 aside and keep warm. 
 
 4. Place egg whites in a bowl and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually 
 beat in the brown sugar. Continue beating until stiff peaks form. Whisk 
 one third of the egg white mixture into the chocolate mixture, then fold 
 in remaining egg white mixture.
 
 5. Pour soufflé mixture into a greased 20cm/8in soufflé dish and bake in 
 the oven for 20 minutes or until well risen. Sprinkle the soufflé with 
 icing sugar and serve immediately with fresh strawberries and cream.
