The difference between cake and bread is that a cake is sweeter, more delicious and contains much more calories than bread. Cakes are fermented with baking soda, while bread is fermented with yeast. Cakes are prepared with a lot of ingredients to make them tastier, while bread is prepared mainly with flour. The cake requires a lot of ingredients not normally found in bread, such as eggs, milk, butter, and cups of sugar.
Cakes are generally made with baking powder and baking soda, while bread is made with yeast. Pastries and quick breads don't use yeast to create their dough and can have very different crumb structures (although some breads can be dense like pastries and vice versa). So is the cake bread? Although certain pastries are called breads and are baked in a bread pan, such as banana bread, they do not contain yeast, so technically they are not breads. If you look at the list of ingredients for a cake compared to a loaf of bread, you'll immediately notice that the list is much longer for a cake.
