Dundee Cake

Dundee Cake

Dundee Cake is a famous traditional Scottish fruit cake with a rich flavour.[1][2]

The cake is often made with currants, sultanas and almonds; sometimes, fruit peel may be added to it. The cake originated in nineteenth century Scotland, and was originally made as a mass produced cake by the marmalade company called Keiller's. Keiller's marmalade company first produced the cake commercially, and have been claimed to be the originators of the term "Dundee Cake".[citation needed] However, similar fruit cakes cakes were produced across Scotland. The top of the cake is typically decorated with concentric circles of almonds. Today, the cakes are often sold in supermarkets all throughout the United Kingdom.
