Dripping Cake
Cakes

In most parts of England 'Dripping Cake' is a general term for sweet fruit cakes traditionally made with dripping as the fat, such as Ilkley Cake.

For the type of Lardy Cake sometimes called 'Dripping Cake' in Cheltenham and Gloucester, see: Cheltenham Dripper. For the ancient dish made by dripping cake batter onto a skewer, see Trayne Roste.

'Tom Brown's Schooldays' has; "the excellence of that mysterious condiment, a dripping-cake."
