Cake Pie Recipes
What the heck is a cake pie?
Is it a cake or is it a pie? I asked myself that very same question the first time I heard about this dessert. Very simply put a cake pie is a cross between a pie and a cake. Many of the cake pies have a crust with a bit of pie filling and cake on top. Others are a cake with pie filling included in their mixture. Anyway you look at it they are delicious. You'll never have to choose between cake or pie again. You can have the best of both worlds.
