The word “cake” actually comes from the Old Norse word “kaka”.
Ancient Greeks called the Cakes as “plakous” which was derived from the word “flat”. It was baked using flour mixed with eggs, milk, nuts and honey.
They also had a cake called “satura,” which was a flat heavy cake. During the Roman period, the name for cake became “placenta” which was derived from the Greek term.
Placenta were baked on a pastry base or inside a pastry case.
