Picadilly's Carrot Souffle

"One of the most-often-requested recipes from Piccadilly Cafeterias. I found it in the online edition of the Baton Rouge Advocate. This is not exactly health-conscious, due to the large amount of sugar, but it is delicious and i guarantee kids will eat these carrots!"

Questions & Replies

  1. If I was cppoking for a larger group would I increase the measurement.
  2. Can this be made /baked in individual ramekins?
  3. Can this be made the night before & cook the next day
  4. Has anyone tried making this with Justegg?
  5. Can you freeze ahead of time without losing its flavor or quality?


  1. I used to work for Piccadilly. The only change to this recipe is that we used LIQUID margarine. It does make a difference. Get some squeeze parkay and use it in place of the softened margarine. It rises higher! Bon appetit!
  2. This recipe is great...but I did change one thing...I only use about HALF of the sugar called for in the recipe. You don't really NEED the large amount called for, since carrots are already pretty sweet when cooked. I made a single batch for a family function and they were GONE before anyone had a chance to go for seconds...now they request at least a double batch of this!!! You HAVE to TRY it!!! Even my DH (who despises cooked carrots) loves it!!!! Thanks for posting!
  3. I don't know anything about Picadilly Cafe but this is delicious!
  4. I've never made a souffle before, so didn't really know what to expect with this, but it was beautiful!! So light and sweet. Just delicious. What a great way to use up carrots too, we always have an abundance here!
  5. Great recipe and it came out so well. If you follow the recipe you can't go wrong. My souffle took about an hour and 5 minutes to bake.

  1. When I am out of fresh carrots, I use 2 cans (14.5 oz) of sliced carrots, bring them to a rolling boil and strain them of excess water before mixing. I also use an electric mixer and whip the eggs until frothy and immediately add them to the mixture.The souffle seems to hold it's shape better after baking.Nothing worse than a collapsed souffle! To cut back on sugar content, I use 1/2 cup of sugar and add some Truvia. My 3 year old niece says she doesn't like carrots , so we tell her it's a Souffle Dessert and she loves it.When she graduates from college we will confess to our ruse. LOL
  2. I reduced the recipe by half and cooked for an hour. Could have cooked 10 mins longer.


Originally from the Midwest, I have lived in New Orleans for decades--my waistline shows it! It's a fabulous foodie city, with new restaurants constantly opening. Travel is very important to me, and we do a lot of that. My photography "habit" and travel go together nicely, as does a growing passion for birding and its associated travel.
