Classic Carrot Cake

"Rich, moist and full of flavor, this is a carrot cake recipe you can turn to time and time again. What's the secret?? Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk, fragrant spices and pretty flecks of grated carrots flavor the cake while a tangy cream cheese frosting provides the finishing touch."
