One of the most Southern of cakes is a creation known as a Lane cake. It was named after Emma Rylander Lane of Clayton, Alabama. It was published in 1898 in her book titled Some Good Things to Eat, and the original recipe title was Prize Cake. It is a white layer cake with a bourbon-flavored filling made with egg yolks.
