I have heard and been in meaningless arguments about cheesecake. Some claim it`s more a pie because it has crust others claim it`s more like a cake. I say it`s in a category all its own.

It's more of a pie because it has a crust and is shaped more like a pie.

I think of it more as a pie. It's too thick to be considered a cake.

A pie because of the crust.

It is a type of custard pie. Cakes contain flour or some sort of leavening agent.

Cake, I think.

It's obviously a pie if it has a crust.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/30/07 - 10:00:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
in what way is it a pie? the base is shortbread, not pastry, it has no crust on the top, and is full of a thick gooey cakey stuff, therefore cake.

There is nothing "cakey" whatsoever about the interior, and plenty of pies do not have a top crust (meringues, pumpkin, etc).

I'd say it;s off on it's own.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 7/31/07 - 8:50:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think it is a pie.

It's called cheeseCAKE not cheesePIE so I am guessing it's a cake whatever you call it when I see it I call it GONE - YUMMY !!!

Yeah, but those big round things in urinals are called "deodorant *CAKES*," too.

It's a custard.

It's really a hard question.
It's similar to whete a jaffa cake is a cake or a biscuit.

It's a pie, it bears no resemblance, really, to a cake.

A jaffa cake is a cake. End of discussion.

It depends on the type of cheesecake. French style is more pie or pudding like. New York style (what most Americans think of when you say cheesecake) is more cake like. It really doesn't matter because cheesecake is delicious.

It's pie-shaped so I'm going with pie. That, and it tastes nothing like cake. Damn the name.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 10/21/07 - 10:57:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
Pie-shaped? Cakes can be round too. And yet when a pie is square we can it cobbler. Isn't that wierd?
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 10/21/07 - 11:11:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
eh, I was thinking about the cheesecakes that I make, but you're right they can be in a higher, more cake like form.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/13/07 - 2:10:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd say pie. My boyfriend and I were talking about how we should all call it cheese pie, though that would sound weird.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/13/07 - 4:44:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
Cheese pie is when you are so drunk you can't say,

Hey I just threw a quiche at you.

14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/13/07 - 4:52:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't care what it is, it is just GOOD.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/13/07 - 9:56:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's classified as a pie. It's too custard-like to be a cake.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 11/15/07 - 11:59:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd say it's more of a pie.
