The cake is often made with currants, sultanas and almonds; sometimes, fruit peel may be added to it. The cake originated in nineteenth century Scotland, and was originally made as a mass produced cake by the marmalade company called Keiller's. Keiller's marmalade company first produced the cake commercially, and have been claimed to be the originators of the term "Dundee Cake". However, similar fruit cakes were produced across Scotland.
