Cornish Hevva Cake is made from flour, lard, butter, milk, sugar and raisins and originated in Cornwall. Its name is derived from the Pilchard industry in Cornwall prior to the 20th century when a ‘huer’ (cliff top lookout) helped locate shoals of fish. The huer would shout ‘Hevva!, Hevva!’ to alert the boats to the location of the pilchard shoals. Cornish tradition states that Hevva cake was baked by the huers on their return to their homes, it being ready by the time they returned to land.
