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.

How to Make Piccadilly Carrot Souffle

Step-by-Step

  1. Steam or boil carrots until extra soft. Drain well.
  2. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 4-20-2014 --- Had to make this for our Easter Sunday dinner again. It is so delicious and loved by all.
  8. Here is the pic of soufflé and the beautiful tulips that were a sweet welcome gift from a dear friend for our first home purchase.
