Carrot Souffle

  • Yield: 10 to 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 pounds carrots, chopped
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt for the topping
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350?F. Grease a 9 x 13-inch casserole with the oil and set aside.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add the carrots, and cook until tender, about 15 minutes; drain. Combine the carrots with the remaining ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared casserole.
  • Combine the brown sugar, pecans, flour, and butter in a medium bowl. Stir to blend. Scatter the mixture over the top of the casserole and bake until the topping is lightly browned, 55 minutes to 1 hour.
