Peel, clean and dice the carrots into 1″ pieces. Boil in a large pot for about 30 minutes until very soft. While still hot place the carrots in your food processor or blender. Add sugars, baking powder, vanilla, flour and mix. Add eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, butter and mix until smooth. DO NOT overmix, you don’t want it foamy.

Pour into the casserole dish, smooth out the top and bake for about an hour. It will puff up in the oven but within minutes after removing from the oven it naturally settles.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a casserole dish with baking spray. (I've used a 9x9 square and or oval)

  4. Add the flour, mix until smooth.
  5. Add eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg then butter. (Note: Be careful not to over mix; you don't want a lot of foam.)

    This looks very yummy!! But I missed the flour. It was in the ingredients listed but not the directions. When should I have put it in? And how will it turn out without the flour? Thank you!!

      Hi Mary Beth! I’m so sorry I missed adding the flour to the directions. You add it to the food processor after the vanilla, mix until smooth. It should still come out ok, maybe a little less fluffy. I have corrected the recipe and really appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
