Whether you're looking for a decadent mocha treat or a heavenly pear and red wine combination, these light-as-air French desserts will make an elegant addition to any summer dinner party, and they're easier to make than you think.
Rich and chocolatey, this gorgeous mocha souffle is lightly infused with hints of coffee to produce a irresistibly fluffy dessert. Serve your souffle warm with a dollop of vanilla ice-cream for a real sweet treat.
Do not be intimidated by the soufflé! Think of it as a flavoured base into which beaten egg whites are folded. The heat of the oven expands the air in the egg white and contracts when cooled. So serve it immediately, hot from the oven.
