This recipe is based on one given to me by my friend Salima years ago. It quickly became a family favorite and kids always enjoy it, too. I've had a few people say they don't like carrots but love this souffle (the magic of butter and sugar...). Perfect on your holiday table (including Halloween for an orange dish) or anytime of year. —BlueKaleRoad

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 9x9 inch square baking dish. If doubling the recipe, prepare a 9x13 inch dish.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth, scraping side the down as needed. Pour batter into baking dish.
  3. At this point, you can refrigerate the dish overnight and bake just before serving, or you can bake ahead and warm in the oven before serving. It is also good room temperature.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes. If making in a 9x13 inch dish, bake for 45 minutes.

Thanks, Sagegreen! Guests often comment it's like eating cake. Trying it for dessert is a terrific idea. Maybe next time I make it I'll serve it with some whipped cream and grilled pineapple.
