Piccadilly Carrot Souffle

This is an amazingly easy recipe to follow and very delicious. None of my family was able to guess that it was carrots.
I made this for our Christmas Dinner last year and everyone loved it, including the children. They all thought it was sweet potatoes or yams. Now, this recipe is a copykat of Piccadilly Cafeteria's recipe.

If you wanted to switch up and put less sugar I am sure that you could, but again we indulged for the holiday and make it just as the recipe stated.

The souffle puffed up very high and was just beautiful; however, it came out of the oven before other dishes were done and so it lost it's elegant flair. Typically a souffle will only stay puffed up for about 10 minutes. Next time, I will make it to come out of oven right before we eat, so that we can admire the "souffle" part. lol

Hope you enjoy.

2While carrots are warm, add sugar, baking powder and vanilla. Whip with mixer until smooth. (I used a potato masher first and then the mixer. Either way works fine.)

3Add flour and mix well. Whip eggs and add to flour mixture, blend well. Add softened margarine to mixture and blend well.

6I tried this out in two smaller ramekins and they looked so festive. Plus it cut down on the cooking time about 20 minutes less. I may try serving this way next time.
