All set to welcome the new year? How are the preps going on?
I do hope you got a chance to spent some wonderful time with your loved ones. Thank you so much for sending me the wishes through mails and comments. I was so happy, that we were in your thoughts during this festive season. It was just the two of us here, but we had a lovely Christmas!
So before we go to the recipe, tell me how was 2013 for you? Good, bad, life changing…? I hope it ended on a good note for you, after all “all's well that end's well”, right?
Well for me personally, it wasn't one of the best years. But then life is all about ups and downs right? Anyhow I want to end the year with a thankful note. I'd like to think of myself as a person who is generally thankful for everything in her life, but something I noticed the other day reinforced the importance of being thankful.
Whenever we go for mass, at the beginning of the mass they usually announce any particular intentions given by people for that mass. Sometime ago I started noticing something… every week it's announced that a particular couple is offering thanksgiving mass. After that I got curious to see whether they are offering this every week and yes, without fail it's done every week! It's not like you are simply giving your name, it's paid for. Though it's a very small amount, it's not free.
Ok, let me make something clear.. it's not that we don't offer thanksgiving mass, we do. When something special happens, we offer a thanksgiving mass. It's not something we do on a regular basis, may be yearly once or twice. So when we attended the Christmas mass and heard their names it got me thinking, if these people have to offer thanksgiving mass every other week, they must be abundantly blessed! I started wondering what kind of blessings they might have received… can it be a major promotion at work, huge increment, a new house, blessings related to children like birth of a child, their education, marriage etc etc; Do I sound anymore materialistic to you ;)?
Then it suddenly hit me… I was in the church last year attending Christmas mass and this year also I'm here attending the mass. The fact that I'm here for one more year to celebrate Christmas with my loved ones, isnt that itself a blessing? Is every other day when I'm able to get up on my own and do my own things without physically depending on anybody else, isn't that one of the greatest blessings of life? So now when I look at it, even if I offer a thanksgiving mass every other day, that isn't enough! May be you are doing it already, but as you can see I'm a bit slow ;)
Now coming back to our recipe, I thought I'll post a dessert recipe to mark the end of this year and welcome the new one with a sweet note. This is a no fuss, simple and easy recipe idea. It looks great, has a nice soft and smooth texture, it's light on the tummy and the ingredients are easily available. Also, I like my desserts not too sweet and this one suits my taste. I got this recipe from my friend Sonia, who got it from her friend Mallika, whom I've never met. A big thank you to both you girls for sharing this recipe :)
We wish you and your loved ones a Happy, Healthy and Blessed New year! God Bless!

Instead of gelatin is it ok to use China grass. If yes, can you tell me the quantity.
Thanks & Regards
Yes that’s what I use, Smitha
Hi Maria my souffle tasted well but it didn’t set. I kept it in the fridge to set overnight but it is still not set
Sorry to hear that the souffle didnt set well. The setting past mostly depends on the gelatine. So anything related to that must be the reason, like gelatine was nearing expiry or something like that..
Hope it comes out perfect next time.
That was an easy and nice dessert. My kids just loved it that i already made it twice for them.
Thanks for sharing it.
how are you?
I’m so happy to hear that your kids loved it :) Thanks a lot for the comment dear.
I used 100% cocoa and it didn’t turn out good .Can you specify what kind of dark chocolate ..with cocoa% in the chocolate .Also pls explain the way you mix in whipped cream with the choco mix.
Sorry to know that it didnt turn out well for you.. I think 40-60% of cocoa would be good for this recipe.
I just folded in the whipping cream using a plastic spatula.
Hope you give it a try one more time and like it too..
Happy New Year Dear…May you have a wonderful year ahead …

Happy New Year Maria! Will definitely try this one. Can I substitute milk chocalate to dark chocolate?
Thanks Minnie and wish you the same :) I guess you can try but may be you need to adjust the qty of sugar since milk choc is sweet.
Hope it comes out well for you..
