Vanilla and chocolate marble cake

A cake (mainly in Europe) or fruit cake (in Quebec and New Brunswick) is a round or rectangular cake, containing raisins and candied fruit, which is served in slices. The word "cake" has extended to a savory cake of the same shape, made with vegetables, olives, ham, etc. We then speak of “salted cake”.

Whether savory or sweet, a cake is made from flour, eggs and butter or oil and requires a cake mold. The softness of the butter lends itself well to sweetness and the oil to savory.
