It’s King Cake season again so it’s time to turn our gaze westward toward the prairies of Lafayette where Francois Poupart’s Bakery has been putting out the best French King Cake in the state since 1967.
This cake bears little resemblance to the King Cakes you see around New Orleans that are stuffed with gloppy, overly sweet fillings then drizzled with more treacly icings.
Poupart’s is a noble cake, light, airy, and sweetened with almond cream. It’s the best in the state.
