This Louisiana Crunch Cake Recipe is a must for your family. This is a classic southern and delicious cake that everyone will love. It has a buttery and soft texture with a slightly sweetened coconut flavor. This is a great cake recipe for holidays and special occasions.
Okay, so I love cake, right? I do. My favorite dessert and cake is a good old Birthday Cake with Buttercream Icing. The more 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 have a glaze instead of a full coat of icing. This explains why I have always loved Entenmann’s Lousiana Crunch Cake. It is
one of the best store-bought cakes I’ve ever had. This cake recipe was a cake recipe I wanted to replicate.
What is a Louisiana Crunch Cake?
In my words, Louisiana Crunch Cake is a slice of heaven! It is a moist, buttery cake with a touch of sweetened coconut flakes at the very top of the crust. Now, I know coconut is a hit or miss with people, but I’m telling you, even if you are not crazy about coconut, this cake is not overwhelming with coconut flavor to where you will notice immediately.
This is cake recipe is to be made in a bundt pan or tube pan. You can use whatever design of a bundt pan you will like. All you have to do is top this cake off with the glaze, and it will make the cake look fancy and lovely.
Commonly Asked Questions

I am sure you could, but I have not, so I wouldn’t be able to tell you what to expect. If you are going for the true Louisiana Crunch Cake texture, you wouldn’t want to use cake mix as it may not be as dense as a typical Crunch Cake recipe is.
Yes. For this recipe, it is best that the ingredients are at room temperature for a smooth cake bake for a soft cake.
