This recipe is a combination of recipes to get that perfectly moist cake carrot texture I get from bakeries. It has taken me years to perfect this recipe but worth the wait. In fact, I've had coworkers pay me to make this cake for them. Now I have people begging me for the recipe. So here it is... NOTE: the flavor is enhanced by the sourdough and the moistness is retained by the powdered milk. Enjoy!
