Louisiana Crunch Cake y’all! Are you with me? Have you had it? If not, you’re going to want to get in your kitchen ASAP and make this recipe as soon as possible. It’s absolutely amazing. You’ll need to invite people over to help you devour this cake so that you don’t inhale it all by yourself. You really might want to. So let’s rewind a bit for those of you that don’t know the wonder of this spectacular cake.

I’m not sure if there’s a larger history to this cake, I wasn’t able to find one.  What I do know is that I have such fond memories of eating Entenmann’s Lousiana Crunch Cake. Moist yellow cake that has a crunchy, nutty texture with a coconut glaze. It’s pretty much boxed perfection. There’s only one thing I could think of that could possibly make this awesome cake better, if I could make it easily at home so that I could have a fresh Louisiana Crunch Cake any time I want.

Copycat Louisiana Crunch Cake - FoodBabbles.comThis is a dangerous power to have but I went there anyway because what’s not to love about homemade cake? This recipe is pretty spectacular. If you’re a coconut lover, this will be right up your alley. The yellow cake is wonderfully tender and moist. The batter is poured over fragrant coconut then once baked, you turn the cake out and like an upside down cake, the top has a beautiful, slightly crunchy texture from all that lovely coconut.

For my version, I amped up the glaze factor a bit because well, … Glaze! I also wanted a little more crunch so I sprinkled just a bit of toasted coconut over the top for the perfect finishing touch. This cake is so easy to make and dare I say, better than its store-bought counterpart? Just putting it out there. You be the judge of that and give this Louisiana Crunch Cake Recipe a try. I personally, don’t think I’ll be buying this cake in a box again.

I made this cake a few days ago for the first time and followed the recipe completely. I made one for my honey and the other for a colleague celebrating her birthday. I have received nothing but rave reviews. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I will definitely be making it again in the future.
