A three-layered white-coloured sponge with decorative white meringue icing and a filling of raisins, pecans, glacé cherries and vanilla (sweet sherry can be substituted for the vanilla). Lady Baltimore cake is a classic cake hailing from the southern United States. It was popularised by the 1906 novel "Lady Baltimore" set in Charleston, South Carolina and despite the name has no connection whatsoever to Baltimore, Maryland, USA!
My Grandmother and my Mother used to make this cake. It was soooooooooo good. I had lost the recipe in all my movings over the years, Now I'v got it back. Thanks a heap. Wouldn't change a thing. - 29 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I'll give this 5 stars, it tastes good, however I probably won't make it again. I have another white cake recipe that I use and get similar results without jumping through all the hoops. It is good and worth trying. Thanks. - 31 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My boss who is an awesome chef/baker wanted her mom to make her famous LB cake, but she wouldn't so I took a stab at it and this turned out great! Everyone loved it, even boss's mom! - 30 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
