Barm Cake

Breads
Lancashire

Very soft bread roll, typically 6ins diameter, 1½ins thick.

The name is now restricted to Lancashire and parts of Cumbria and Yorkshire where filled bread rolls are customarily referred to as 'barms', but seems to have formerly been more widespread as the name occurs in advertisements and news reports in Derbyshire and Northumberland. See: Bread Names


Brown Barm Cakes, 2013


Barm is an old term for 'yeast' and there is some evidence that barm cakes were formerly leavened with the yeast-rich froth from brewing beer.
