Are you a cake or pie person?

Can you tell we were hungry when we wrote this poll question? Mmmm! If you had to choose between cake or pie, which would you choose to eat?

If you were at a birthday party, say, and they had a pie and a cake, which one would you ask for a slice of? Or would you ask for a slice of both? Or perhaps you don’t have a sweet tooth and you’d just rather go back for dinner seconds.

We’d probably take a slice of both. Life is short, right? OK, now we’ve got to stop thinking about desserts and get back to work (yeah, right, as if we ever stop thinking about desserts!). Please tell us your preference by voting in the poll below. Thanks!

Was all for pie until I discovered wife-baked cobblers. Never go back: apple-rhubard cobbler… yummy!

Being Gluten Intolerant, I have to pass on both. 🙁

A good moist cake with fresh fruit filling and fresh buttercream is the best!

Oh also forgot a good Hummingbird cake or carrot cake is also high on the list!

Both. DW doesn’t make pies. She hates to work the crust, but she makes a great crisp (apple, berry or what ever fruit is on hand). Life is good!

My answer is dependent upon what is offered. I love carrot cake but my favourite dessert is Pecan Pie followed closely by “real” coconut cream pie. That means coconut cooked in the filling not just sprinkled on top.

Carrot Cake, German Chocolate, Cake, Coconut Cake/Creme Pie, Key Lime Pie, Pecan Pie, most any fruit cobbler….

Life is a banquet and most poor slobs are starving to death!

It depends on which one has the most chocolate.

If it was Lemon meringue then pie would be the choice. A slice of pie and cake would never be turned down.

As a diabetic, I wanted to say neither, but hey, I know me best. “Just give me a piece of pie and nobody gets hurt”

You can still eat awesome desserts using Swerve, allulose, monk fruit or other sweeteners that do not spike blood sugar. I made a peach cobbler that was better than my mom’s regular sugar laden one. 🤫 I didn’t tell her that though. Look up Keto desserts.

Being a diabetic, I would settle for a meat pie! I sure loved those “Hubigs” fried and frosted lemon pies they used to make in New Orleans!

I’m not a big sweet eater so I seldom have either. Now, put something salty in front of me and look out. Remember that Lays Potato Chip ad “Bet you can’t eat just one”? That was written with me in mind!!

I like both but eat a lot more pies. I won the Michigan Apple Growers “Best Apple Pie in the State of Michigan” pie baking contest in 2008. It was the first time I had entered any food preparation contest. I used my father’s recipe, which he frequently made for family gatherings, & passed on to me when he could no longer make it.
Here’s the link to the recipe

Way cool! Thanks, Fred. I’ve printed up the recipe (thank you for sharing it!) and am going to try it sometime. Take care, and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 😀 —Diane at RVtravel.com

We discovered peanut butter pie while down in Houston. A friend said we had to try it! We did, and now I’m a huge fan. My wife picked out a recipe (out of hundreds that showed up in a web search!) and made it in our trailer. Fabulous. Of course, I’m one who believes that peanut butter improves whatever it is slathered on.

I agree, Tommy! And my dad used to eat PB straight out of the jar “to get a little extra protein” in his diet. 😀 Happy St. Patrick’s Day! —Diane at RVtravel.com

Well, yeah, Tommy. Now that you mention it (raises hand). 😆 Have a great day! —Diane at RVtravel.com

I said “both,” but my decision really depends on the pie filling and the type of cake. Also, I don’t care much for pastry, so my ideal pie only has a pastry bottom.

I’m a Boston Cream Pie person which is a Cake more than a Pie so I chose both.

Stay safe, Stay well, Safe travels.
