Sourdough Carrot Cake

Sourdough Carrot Cake created by Mandy S.

Sourdough is believed to have originated in Ancient Egyptian times around 1500 BC, and was likely the first form of leavening available to bakers. Comes from a November 1978 Better Homes and Garden magazine. I haven't made this in years but it is delicious!

    I made this into a round cake with two 9" rounds. I decreased the cinnamon by half and then added 1/4 tsp nutmeg and 1/4 tsp allspice. I added chopped walnuts to the mixture as well. I doubled the icing recipe. It's delicious and moist.

    Made this today, I made some slight changes, substituted sugar for 1 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup organic honey. I also added some raisins and topped with pumpkin seeds before baking. Very moist and very delicious a bonus to use my sourdough in this recipe to. Will def make this again :))
