If you never had this cake, you don’t know what you are missing. No…like seriously.
Okay, so I love cake, right? I really do. My favorite dessert and cake is good ol Birthday Cake with Butter Cream Icing. The buttery the better! However, I don’t like a lot of icing on my cake. Just a nice thin layer will do just fine. I prefer cakes that has a glaze instead of a full coat of icing. It’s better for me that way. Now that I am getting older and don’t eat many foods with refined sugar my taste buds are sensitive to desserts that are too sweet and rich. When I was younger and didn’t know any better about what I was doing to my body, I would buy a Louisiana Crunch Cake by a company called Entenmann’s and eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday until it was gone. That is how amazing that cake is. It is also perfect with an icy cold glass of milk ( I no longer drink cow’s milk). I loved the cake so much, I thought I’d try to make it and see if it competes with Entenmann’s.
Well… it’s soft like Entenmann’s.
It’s moist like Entenmann’s.
It tastes almost like Entenmann’s! Like really close!
I love this cake. I am not a huge fan of coconut but there are two desserts that I don’t particularly mind coconut and that is this Louisiana Crunch Cake and Samoa Girl Scout Cookies. Oh! And my Pina Colada Cupcakes that I made a month or so ago. Other than that I am not a huge coconut person. I definitely don’t like coconut shrimp or anything like that. Can we say “gross”? Oh and coconut water….THAT IS A NEGATIVE. It tastes like old water. I understand the benefits, but it is gross. Ok. How did I start rambling about coconut? Oh yea, this cake. Definitely give this cake a try. You won’t be disappointed.
