The Lady Baltimore Cake is a Southern specialty with complex flavors and is very unique. It is a white cake filled with raisins, figs, candied cherries, and pecans.

The cake is believed to have been created in the Southern United States in the early 20th century. The first recorded mentions of a cake with the name of "Lady Baltimore" began appearing in 1906. The most popular legend of the Lady Baltimore is that Alicia Rhett Mayberry, a Southern belle, baked and served the cake to novelist Owen Wister in Charleston, South Carolina. Wister was said to have been so enamored with the cake that he used it as the namesake of his novel, Lady Baltimore.  According to food historians, the cake may have actually originated with Florence and Nina Ottelengui, the longtime managers of Charleston's Lady Baltimore Tea Room, who were known to ship the cake to Owen Wister every year.
