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.

1/4 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Steam or boil carrots until extra soft. Drain well.

While 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.)
3
Add flour and mix well. Whip eggs and add to flour mixture, blend well. Add softened margarine to mixture and blend well.
4
Pour mixture into 13 by 9 inch baking dish about half full as the souffle will rise.
5
Bake in 350 degree oven about 1 hour or until top is a light golden brown. Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar over top before serving.

I 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.
