My son's favorite...of course I will make it!

Carrot Souffle

1 pound carrots, peeled, chopped
1/2 c. sugar
1 t. baking powder
1 t. vanilla extract
3 T. flour
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter or margarine (softened)
Confectioners sugar

Combine the carrots with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil; boil until very tender, drain. Combine the hot cooked carrots, sugar, baking powder and vanilla in a mixer bowl. Beat until smooth. Add the flour and mix well. Add the eggs and mix well. Add the margarine and mix well. Pour into a 9x9 inch baking dish coated with nonstick spray.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until top is a light golden brown; do not overbake. Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar (I skip this as it is already sweet enough!). Serve warm. Yield: 6 servings

I usually double this and there are hardly ever leftovers!

Wow I've never heard of this. Does it taste like carrot cake and is it a dessert? I'll have to try it.

This has the same ingredients(except the carrots) as a sweet potato dish we have at Thanksgiving
sounds yummy
Blessings for a wonderful Thanksgiving week to you!

This does sound like a dish we have with sweet potato's, too. Does it taste like carrots? I think we'll try it, if it is your son's favorite.

I got your gift today!! I will post it tomorrow. Everything is wonderful! Thank you for all of your kindness!

Sounds kind of yummy...might have to give this one a try. I'm excited about the charger....thank you so much for finding one for me. You're the best.

Debbie said...

I'll have to take your word for it; we prefer yams though we do like carrots. But I must say you have the nicest recipe book holder I've ever seen!
Happy Thanksgiving!

We had something like this last year at our Ladies' Thanksgiving luncheon and I can tell you it was the HIT at the buffet!! I love how you say "Of course, I'll make it." We moms will do anything for them, right? Enjoy!

Hi, Suzanne ...

Just stopping by to wish you and your family the best Thanksgiving celebration ever!

Your carrot souffle sounds delicious. We're having a Christmas party and I've been looking for new recipes to try. Your souffle sounds perfect!

Just read your post from yesterday too. Yes I finally realized no one was coming over, out of the clear blue sky. They were all busy living life. Yes I realize that. I have been head of Santa's workshop all week and will be until Christmas. I am so pleased with all my projects. Can't share til after Christmas. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family from our gang here.
