Cyn’s Copycat Piccadilly Carrot Souffle

I love those restaurants that give you the home cooked feeling when you sit down to eat, so Piccadilly has become one of my favorite Thursday night family go-to spots! Carrots have NEVER been one of my favorites though. I don’t cook them at home unless they are in a frozen bag of mixed veggies, but one visit to Piccadilly I decided to try this dish. Why? I don’t know, but I’m so glad I did! That first bite convinced me that carrots could be among my list of favs. It was creamy, with a little texture and sweet all at the same time.

Here’s what you’ll need:
Ingredients:
3 lbs carrots
1 1/4 cup of sugar
1 tbsp of vanilla
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
1/4 tsp of salt
1 stick of butter
1/4 cup of flour
6 eggs

So, the first thing you want to do is preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then rinse and peel the carrots.

Cut them up and make sure they are somewhat uniform to insure even cooking.

 

Boil the carrots until they are fork tender…not mushy, just soft enough for the fork to penetrate easily.

 


Now it’s time to mash the carrots. There will be some chunky bits, but that’s ok. As long as you’ve boiled them long enough they will be soft. Keep in mind that the end product will go in the oven if you’ve rushed the boiling.
Now you can add the remaining ingredients, so here they are again:
1 1/4 cup of sugar
1 tbsp of vanilla
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
1/4 tsp of salt
1 stick of butter
1/4 cup of flour
6 eggs

**Be sure to add the eggs one at a time, so they are mixed in well.

 

Here is what it will look like. If you are making this for the holidays or any day for that matter and need to refrigerate overnight…you’ve hit the jackpot with this recipe because it refrigerates well!


Bake for 30 minutes, sprinkle with confectioners sugar, and you’ll have happy tummies all around your table!
