[Scand., or L. coquere, to cook.] A mass of dough, made palatable by the addition of sugar, eggs, fruit, and other materials, and baked in the oven; or made into a batter and baked on a griddle. It differs in these respects from bread. Also the compressed seeds of flax, rape, and cotton. These contain much oil, which is extracted by strong pressure, leaving a compact cake of about half an inch in thickness. Oil cake is used as food for animals, half-a-pound a day being sufficient for a sheep and five pounds for a bullock. It is used in addition to grass, hay, or other food.
