I made this cake first time more than 3 years ago when I first got the sourdough starter. I took it to work and everyone loved it there. But I haven’t had a chance to make it again until now. I saw the recipe in the King Arthur Catalog and it reminded me of the moist and delicious cake that I made years ago.
Sourdough starter makes this cake very moist and there are no tell-tale signs of sourness or the addition of sourdough starter anywhere. I halved the original recipe and made 1 8″ round cake. Then frosted the cake with a very simple cream cheese frosting.
The reason for celebration is that I crossed 1000 postscouple of posts back and this is a sweet treat to myself. I have to thank the BM group and especially Valli, without them the posts would have been random and I would never have reached this milestone.
