Buttermilk Drop Bakery's king cake

Buttermilk Drop Bakery's Dutch Apple King Cake
Buttermilk Drop Bakery's Dutch Apple King Cake features a braided ring of tender, not too sweet dough. A judicious amount of white icing is topped with colored sugar and streusel, the brown sugar and butter crumb topping used in Dutch apple pies. The crispy topping is a great contrast to the dough, which is a perfect consistency. (Dinah Rogers, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune)

Buttermilk Drop Bakery lost one of its locations in November 2016, but the original bakery on North Dorgenois is open and plans to make king cakes for the 2017 Mardi Gras season.
