I first tasted Piccadilly Carrot Souffle side dish at a Piccadilly Cafeteria in WPB, Florida several years ago and spent the next 6 months trying every recipe I could find that might be “it.” Then a lady posted it to a recipe list I was on, and EUREKA!! “it” was finally found. I have tweaked it a wee bit to make it less sweet than the original recipe. This is a perennial favorite, enjoyed by everyone, even kids who don't like veggies.

Picadilli Carrot Souffle
Have folks that do not want to eat carrots? Try this dish.
- 2 pounds carrots (about 8 medium-large) peeled, and cut into chunks
- 1 cup sugar
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/3 cup flour
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
Cook the carrots until tender; drain and mash. In large mixing bowl, combine mashed carrots, sugar, baking powder, vanilla and flour. Beat for 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue to beat, slowly adding melted butter. Pour mixture into a greased 1-1/2 quart baking dish or 9" square pan. Bake at 325F about an hour, or until set in the centre. Note: if your oven runs hot, reduce the temperature a bit to avoid scorching the bottom.
To serve,lightly dust the top with powdered sugar.Print Recipe
