From the Creator of Kentucky Butter Crunch Cake

"Cooking for me is like sharing a piece of my soul. I take great pleasure in watching people enjoy my food. And one of my favorite desserts to make is my Kentucky Butter Crunch Cake!  I took two of my favorite cakes and turned them into one bite of pure sweet joy! My favorite cakes being Louisiana Crunch Cake and Kentucky Butter Cake!  Years ago I said to myself, "What would it taste like to bite into both of these cakes at the same time?" and that’s when the magic happened!  I’ve been making this cake ever since and my family has been very happy about my cake epiphany! BTW: the cake tastes better the next day, and the day after if you can wait that long. I always make it a day earlier than I plan on serving it. Something happens with all that butter as the cake sits overnight!"
