Mirelurk Cakes are savory cakes that are made with Mirelurk Meat. Despite the source material, they are altogether inferior to the original meat, healing only a quarter of the HP and with a rad value one higher. In this sense they are closer to Hatchling Mirelurk Meat. A recipe for the cakes can be found in the Anchorage War Memorial.


In the Anchorage War Memorial, the player can find a "secret stash" containing the recipe for Mirelurk Cakes. To get it, the player must find the necessary door component to unlock the storage room, which has a key to the stash and a note on how to find it. The stash itself is hidden in one of the refrigerators on the level beneath the kitchen area. Having the key in your inventory "activates" the stash and generates the items in the fridge. It should be noted the recipe is not like schematics and you will not be able to make the cakes yourself even if you find it.

The recipe calls for:

  • 1 bucket Mirelurk meat
  • 12 eggs, mixed up
  • 1 loaf bread, stale and crumbled
  • 1 bottle mayonnaise (see Marjorie for mayo)
  • 1 branch scrub plant, dried and crushed
  • 2 fists of Salt
  • Oil (for pan)
Remove any shell from lurk. In bucket, toss together bread, egg, scrub and mayo until moistened, but do not over mix. Add any available spices for taste.
Ball up 25-30 cakes, 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick. Place in freezer until they firm up. Sprinkle batch with salt.
In heavy pan, fry cakes in oil, turning once until both sides are brown.


Mirelurk cakes can mostly be found with diner merchants. Gary Staley, the owner of Rivet City's marketplace diner believes he is something of an expert at making them. A large number can be found in the fridges in the Anchorage War Memorial.


The recipe also makes use of eggs, but does not specify from what kind of animal, an important consideration in a world where chickens are apparently extinct and other animals can lay eggs too.

Apparently, Mirelurks cakes gives flatulence, as hinted at in a dialogue option with Gary Staley, the owner of the Rivet City diner.
