• Butter and sugar for dusting cocottes


• Butter and sugar for dusting cocottes


• ½ Tbsp unsalted butter


• ½ Tbsp flour


• ¼ cup almond milk


• ¼ cup almond milk


• ½ tsp almond extract


• 2 large egg yolks, divided


• 3 large egg whites


• Salt


• 2 Tbsp sugar


• 2 Tbsp sugar


• Toasted slivered almonds, if desired


• Raspberries and mint, if desired




1. Position one of the racks in the bottom third of the oven and preheat to 400°F.


2. Butter the cocotte and dust with sugar, tilting to evenly coat the bottom, sides, and rim.


3. In a small heavy bottomed saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and stir constantly until completely smooth and incorporated. Pour the almond milk in a thin stream while whisking. Keep whisking for about 3-5 minutes, until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat and whisk in almond extract and a pinch of salt. Scrape into a large bowl and stir in the melted chocolate. Add the egg yolks 1 at a time, whisking well after each addition. Set aside.


4. With an electric mixer, whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt until peaks form. Slowly add sugar and continue mixing until eggs are shiny and stiff. Use a silicone spatula to fold ¼ of the whipped whites into the chocolate base.


5. Fold in the remaining whites in two additions, being careful not to deflate. Transfer to the cocotte.


6. Place the cocotte on a baking sheet and place in the oven. Immediately reduce the oven to 375°F. Bake until puffy and very slightly jiggly in the center, about 25-30 minutes. Serve immediately with whipped.
