"Chocolate gateau!"
- Ron, trying to tempt Hermione into eating (GF12)

A large rich layer cake, where some of the layers are made of cream or fruit.

 

Commentary

Etymology

"Gâteau" is a loan word from the French gâteau, "cake", so strictly speaking the first 'a' should be written as â, but in common English use that detail is often omitted.
