Dear SOS: The recipe you printed for the famous Blum’s Coffee Crunch Cake comes close, but it is not the full recipe. First of all, Blum’s made its own cake. I am enclosing a recipe that I tried and seems close to the Blum’s cake. The cake was cut into four layers, so you got much more crunch per piece. Here are the cake and crunch recipes from my yellowed card files from the ‘50s.

Dear Joan: Here is the history of the recipe we printed: Many years ago, when we requested the recipe from Blum’s, we were sent the crunch frosting portion only. Blum’s recommended using a store-bought cake because the Blum’s recipe would be difficult to cut down to home-baking size.
But for those who want to make their own cake, the recipe from your card files would be a good choice. Thanks for sharing.
