Hevva cake is a traditional Cornish fruit-flavoured, slab-cake, reputed to have originated back in the days when huge shoals of pilchards came close in to the coast and were hauled ashore by villagers using seine nets.
A Huer or lookout was stationed high on the cliffs who would shout the obscure Cornish word "HEVVA" when a shoal was spotted. Great slabs of Hevva cake would then be baked by the women of the village to feed the returning fishermen and, in fact, the whole village when men, women and children would unite to prepare the harvest of the sea for shipping to market.
