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 too loved the Louisiana Crunch cake. Haven't had it in years, since I moved away from an Entenmann's distributor.
