    Default Help naming a cake please!

    Many moons ago I was a student in Coventry and I used to buy a piece of cake which was basically a square piece cut from a tray bake.
    it was about 2" deep and was a bit like a cross between a bread and butter pudding and a raisin sponge cake.
    very heavy and sprinkled with sugar if I recall correctly.

    Is anyone able to give it a name?....I sort of fancy making some, so I need a name to find a recipe!

    Bread pudding? or, if you just want a name for a cake - how about Kenneth?

    the only name i can come up with is NONONO,there used to be something similar to what you describe,i was led to believe it was made from what was left from the day before,a bit like a bread pudding.

    It wouldn't surprise me if it was made up of left overs.....maybe a bit cinnamonny if I recall correctly?
