Cheesecake: Pie or Cake

Updated on February 8, 2015

I Think Cheesecake is a Pie

Cheesecake is one of the most delicious, sensual and to die for desserts. How did it get its name cheesecake?

This name is quite confusing. It is not a cake at all. Unless it is the Red Velvet Cheesecake at Cheesecake Factory, then it would be more like a cake. And a big slice of heaven!

Think about the texture of a cheesecake. It is a dessert that should be in a category all of its own. Rich, creamy, sweet, fattening and sinfully delightful are just some of the names that capture this dessert.

Omaha Steaks has more than delicious steaks. They also have mouth watering desserts such as this assortment of individual cheesecakes.


YOUR TURN! - Pie or Cake?

I say Cheesecake is a pie. The reasoning behind this is:

1. Cakes do not have crust.

2. Cake can have a cream filling, but not all of it can be cream filling.

3. Cake is a different texture.

4. A cake has to be baked. Whereas a cheesecake is either baked or non-baked. If a cake isn't baked, then it would be goo!

5. A cake has frosting. Cheesecake doesn't. (For the most part.)

How Did Cheesecake Get Its Name?

Not really defined, but in ancient Greece, a Greek physician Aegimus, wrote a book on the art of making cheesecakes. In 1912, James Kraft invented a form of cream cheese, which is now the most commonly used cheese for cheesecake.

      I like cheesecake. I do not know what it is though....might be in the category of Jello or Pudding pie, but it is too thick for that. No matter, I love the NY Cheesecake.

      Nominated for LOTD. Recommended for Purple Star. Bookmarked for future reference. Shared on my Facebook page for Everyday Exotic Spices. (See my lens by the same name.) So it's not spicy. Whatever! If it's cheesecake, it gets recycled to as many people as possible. I know I am not alone. Surely, ba-zillions of people love cheesecake as much I do. :)
