A cake is a type of leavened dessert, usually made from wheat flour, sugar, butter, eggs, milk and some chemical leavening. Cakes should be delicate and moist; the batter should not be mixed for too long so as to avoid building up gluten, and the cake should not be cooked too long so as to avoid drying it out or burning.

The term "cake" is also used for small, flattened balls of dough, as in pone, or for cooked batters, as in pancakes.
