My family (from NY) were language sticklers. We called this baked good, kuchens or Bialystocker kuchens, where they, presumably, originated. My guess is that kuchen is Yiddish, derived from cake in German. My parents would get annoyed when people called them bialys and wouldn't hesitate to correct them, which of course had no effect. 😏
