A recipe from the Lucky 32 restaurant chain in North Carolina and is one of their most requested recipes. Though Lucky 32 makes these cakes with Tabasco brand hot-pepper sauces, other brands of hot sauce may be substituted, and just one type of hot sauce may be used instead of two with similar results.
