Queen Zuri New Orleans Delicacies|
All Hail the Queen of the Dessert
by Jolie Kretchman Loeb
Family pride prevails in the legacy left by Queen Zuri and her trailblazing cake-baking ways. What began as a grandmotherís dream is now fortified by a grand-daughterís talent, poise, and genetic predisposition towards pralines, pecans, and everything pound cake. Skip dinner. This hereís worth it.
Queen Zuri New Orleans Delicacies invite you to taste French Quarter New Orleans and savor it by the slice. With buttery pound cake as their benchmark baked-good extraordinaire, sumptuous indulgence is quite simply unavoidable. Available in rounds, loaves, or individual minis, these homemade helpings take decadence to a deliciously new extreme.
The pound cake purist will know no greater delight than the Plain Round. Vanilla infused and devoid of artificial anything, youíll sit down to this treat and praise the almighty Queen Zuri, one bite at a time. Pair with fresh strawberries and want for nothing.
For the pound cake adventurista, the Coconut Pecan Loaf will sate your sweet tooth and have you squealing with satisfaction. Coconut decorates the cake and dances within it, while pecans add a nutty textural crunch. Wickedly good.
My personal favorite Ė the Lemon Individual. Lemon zest punctuates the creamy consistency of this sweet and tangy treat. This beautiful balance is contradiction at its most luscious. The size is perfect. You donít have to feel bad about eating the whole thing.
The 12 assorted miniís option is the way to go for the best of all worlds. A mixed dozen of Vanilla, Lemon, Coconut, Pecan, and Coconut Pecan pound cakes provides an opportunity to sample the lot, each more mouth watering than the next. And if that wasnít enough to get you going, try $30.00 for 12 miniís on for size. Clearly itís more than the recipe thatís sustained since 1940.
