Need help improving a family recipe
I need help improving a cherished family recipe. My mother has made this specific carrot soufflé for Thanksgiving for years. She clipped the recipe from a magazine and has followed it religiously since it was published.
I’m looking to improve the recipe without evolving it beyond recognition. I’ve typed the recipe below. I’ve considered roasting whole carrots instead of using canned but this idea was met with great concern on my mother’s part lol. She usually tops the cooled soufflé with a light dusting of powdered sugar, so I’m hesitant to make it overly savory. I’m not sure where to start the recipe transformation. Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated!
3 (15 ounce) cans sliced carrots, drained
1 stick butter, slightly melted
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
Place all ingredients in a food processor, and blend until carrots are well blended.
Pour mixture into a greased casserole baking dish; bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes. (Do not overbake.)
An 11x7x1 1/2-inch pan is perfect for this.
