Cheesecake: Cake vs Pie

Post by NapTime » Sun Nov 30, 2008 1:55 am

I think cheesecake is, by virtue of its crust and unleavened nature, a pie. Others have claimed that because it does not have a flakey crust, it must be, as the name implies, a cake. What do you think? Why?

This is a dupe thread, but if the cake wants to loose again then feel free.

For the first 15 years of my life I was accustomed to cheesecake made by my Hungarian great-grandmother. It was a decidedly different thing from what most people think of as cheesecake, and could not qualify as pie or cake.

Cheesecake is demon jism spread on a graham cracker crust.

It depends on the type of cheesecake.

A cool whi(m)p type no bake cheesecake is a pie.

A savory cheesecake is a pie since they usually have a pastry crust (but if you have bacon and onions in it who cares, it will still be good)

A New York style cheesecake or a German Käsekuchen would truly be a cake.

So if you had a cheesecake with bacon in it would it be a Bastard?

I believe I did the last thread, and the final answer was that Cheese cake is Penguin. Yep Penguin.
