Meatcake, or meatloaf cake, is a cake or other dessert look-alike that is made with meat in a meatloaf style, and not a pastry.
The term is used in a sketch by comedianGeorge Carlin, in which he describes finding an unidentifiable item in the refrigerator. "Could be meat, could be cake.... It looks like... meatcake!" However, meatcake itself has occurred as a delicacy for quite some time before George Carlin. Also, meatcake (like beefcake) has been used as a term to refer to strong men who pose as models in club venues.
Meatcake can also refer to an Asian dish similar to meatloaf. Ground meat (e.g. pork, fish, etc.) can be mixed with other ingredients (e.g. pickled greens), and steamed. Often served with rice or congee.
