In Yorkshire, if you happen to visit a Fish & Chip shop and ask for a "Cake" it means a fishcake, but not one with mashed potato and parsley. The Yorkshire "Cake" has two slices of potato with a piece of white fish mainly cod or haddock in the middle, covered in batter and deep-fried in lard or dripping. I know you maybe alarmed about using lard or dripping in deep-frying, but the taste it imparts to the end product is so astounding. Of course by all means, you may wish to fry the "Cakes"in vegetable oil, perfectly fine, although it will not provide such an authentic taste. Mainly these "cakes" are served with chips, mushy peas seasoned with salt and vinegar. So delicious.
