i don't have a strong preference either way. It depends on what kind of pie or cake we're talking about and where it came from. I'll take my mom's pound cake or cobbler over any other pie or cake, homemade or store-bought. However, a good commercially produced german chocolate cake or cherry pie can be better than some of the home-made pies and cakes I've had.

You can keep every cake that's ever been made; I won't fight anyone over a cake.

Maynerd, because of our "discussion" last week, I got a wild hair and drove up to Hico last Saturday to pick up a couple of cases of Dublin Dr. Pepper and eat at Koffee Kup. Had the chicken-fried steak and their homemade onion rings (OMG - ) !!!

For "dessert", I bought a whole Fresh Strawberry Pie to go. I brought it home on Saturday night, and by midday Sunday, my wife, daughter and I had finished it off. And it was a BIG pie!

I also found that they have a website: http://www.koffeekupfamilyrestaurant.com/about.htm


Bushie, I'm Key Lime Pie green with envy!
BTW where in Hico did you get the Dublin DP?

That Strawberry pie a special of the day? I don't see it on their on-line menu.

The one "cake" I like is made from chocolate wafers and whipped cream. These chocolate wafers are sort of like the cookie part of an Oreo, but thinner and larger in diameter. They are a little hard to find.
You layer these wafers with whipped cream (preferably home made) in between until you create a "log". Cover the log with the remaining whip cream. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours. The whip cream soaks into the cookie wafer making it moist. It's delicious.

My mother used to make that. I'd completely forgotten about it. She called it Ice Box cake. And it was the only thing she ever made that was actually edible.

To me, there isnt anything better in this world than a large slice of blueberry pie. Unfortunatly, I cant eat the berry pies anymore due to terrible heartburn (pumpkin too) so now i'm relegated to peach and apple. Not that thats a bad thing I suppose.

Pie- definitely pie- I love fruit pies, especially with streuselly toppings, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, peanut butter pie, toll house pie, cream pies. I could go the rest of my life without a piece of cake, but a pie? I love a good pie.

My Italian Mother bakes the best pies, best cakes and best pastries.......unfortunately her daughter did not inherit the "cool hands" it takes to make fine pastry. (I once made a fresh strawberry tarte.....oh, the berries and the pastry cream were very good but the tarte crust was like cardboard and when one tried to push the fork through it, it went shooting off the plate and onto the floor!)
So when at Mom's I usually ask for her Blue Ribbon (State of PA) apple pie, or the lemon meringue, or the banana cream, or the "Harvest Pie" (pears, apples, cranberries).......oh lawdy, the list goes on and on.
For cakes, my favorite is her Easter Cake......but then there are the pastries and biscotti and hazelnut torte and nut rolls........

Can't decide...should I pick Carrot Cake or Pecan Pie?
The heck with it, I'll just make one of each, and a Sweet Tater Pie if I've got time.

Hi Maynerd! :) What is Chess pie?


It's about time someone answered you! Chess pie is from the South, but it's nothing short of heaven on earth. You wouldn't know it, to hear the list of simple ingredients. Poured into an unbaked pastry crust is a filling made by mixing togther plenty of butter, a few eggs, plenty of sugar, a pinch of salt, a teaspoon or so of vanilla extract and/or vinegar, and the tablespoon or so of cornmeal that makes it authentically Southern.

Then there's chocolate chess, buttermilk chess, lemon chess, pecan chess, coconut chess, etc. -- you get the picture.

Try some. It's good!

I automatically want to say cake, but now that I think abou it, when we're on vacation in the Southern U.S. or up in Northern MN, I order pie whenever I can.

I have very fond memories of finishing my breakfast with a slice of still warm chocolate cream pie from Margie's in Asheville, and my first slice of chess pie at the Boone Tavern Hotel in Berea, KY

Although, homemade white almond cake with vanilla frosting, or red velvet cake w/cream cheese frosting . . . Mmmmmmm. It's the frosting I fall for every time.

CAKE!! Italian creme cake comes in first then the strawberry creme cakes you find in Chinatown.
Cupcakes are cool too, the only pies i care for are pumpkin, boston creme, and French Silk.

I love a good cherry or peach pie with crumbly topping, but I have to say that a good, moist chocolate cake with the fluffy white frosting that you use hot water to make also makes my mouth water. I also make a really great cake called Better Than Sex cake where you bake a chocolate cake, pokes holes in it when it's cool and pour a caramel ice cream topping and sweetened condensed milk mixture over the cake and let it soak in. Then you spread Cool Whip over the top for your "frosting" and sprinkle crushed Heath Bars over top. It is pure Heaven!!

For my birthday last month, my two kids wanted me to have a cake so they could help me blow out my candles. To them it's not a birthday without a cake.

So I dutifully concocted what I thought would be my dream cake: a three-layer sweet-potato spice cake with coconut-pecan frosting in between the layers, and frosted with cream-cheese frosting on the top and sides. It was delicious. I ate half the cake, and then it hit me: I had created all my favorite pies in the form of a cake. What I really wanted in this cake was sweet-potato-pie-with-pecan-pie-with-coconut-chess-pie-with japanese-fruit-pie.

Next year, I'll have a pie instead. The hard part will be deciding which pie.
