Anyone have a T&T recipe I love this but have only had store bought by Entenmann's bakery...id love to do a scratch one. TIA
I have never heard of "Louisiana crunch cake"...but I googled and found many recipes and many vastly different....some with coconut some with orange some with nuts in the cake some without...
I think you need to decide what kind you are remembering and go from there.
I encountered the same thing all recipes were different. Thats why I posted here I thought maybe this was a Southern thing whereby everyone has a recipe LOL Thanks Linda.
I too loved the Louisiana Crunch cake. Haven't had it in years, since I moved away from an Entenmann's distributor.
