Sweet Vegetable Cake is a dish in Ark Survival Evolved. It can be created at a Cooking Pot Cooking Pot or Industrial Cooker Industrial Cooker.


When force fed to a tamed herbivore, it restores 10% of the creature's maximum Health over the next 30 seconds, with a minimum of 500 HP and up to a maximum of 2100 HP restored. There is a 30-second delay before another one can be used. Herbivores (As of patch 252.8, carnivores as well, without having any effect) will consume it automatically as long as their health is below 85%.

Also since Patch 252.8 Carbonemys Carbonemys and Doedicurus Doedicurus no longer gain health from eating this dish.

It is also used to tame the Ovis Ovis and the Achatina Achatina. It is also the only food the Achatina will eat and will recover 500 Food upon consumption.

Sweet Vegetable Cake requires Water Water to cook. Be sure to include a Waterskin Waterskin, Water Jar Water Jar or Canteen Canteen with at least 25% water in the Cooking Pot Cooking Pot. The Industrial Cooker Industrial Cooker can use water from irrigation pipes instead of the water containers.
