Okay, I found this recipe here: http://piecaken.blogspot.ca/2013_11_01_archive.html.
Problem was that I didn't have any of the ingredients on hand and was too lazy to go to the store, so I made do with what I had. The result was an apple pie inside a white cake with cream cheese frosting. Not as visually spectacular as the picture in the above recipe, but this one was real and ready to eat. Verdict: Not sure. I like the pie filling in the cake a lot, but am not sure what the pie crust adds. May have to try making it again.

I've never really understood the appeal of pie crust.  Thus, I only like pies when the filling is so amazing that it makes up for the pointless crust or when they have something like a graham cracker crust.  Or a chocolate cookie crust.

Pecan pie with chocolate cookie crust is one of the few pies, in my opinion, that can actually compete favorably with a really good cake.

This is the first time I've understood that "Pie vs cake" is a question of two sweet things. I've always assumed *savoury* pie vs cake.

Now that's a really tricky question, because a really good pie - steak and kidney, say, or the wonderful duck and orange ones our local butcher used to make - is a thing of wonder. And obviously cake is good. Usually.

But sweet pie vs sweet cake? I don't really care.

So I've gone for other (chocolate mousse, probably, or maybe even a crêpe beurre sucre, which is the simplest yet most delicious dessert in the universe if done with salty butter).

They do, and at least on the West Coast, other savory pies seem to be making a comeback, at specialty pie restaurants that serve both desert pies and savory pies. I'm a big fan.

That is true, but they don't seem to be very popular, or sold in many places.

I would say it does. Good point.

Quiche definitely counts as a savoury pie!

I think we need to rephrase this poll, otherwise we're not comparing like with like. I mean, how many previous voters might have been under the same misapprehension as me and voted for savoury vs sweet?

What if this is just a philosophical question?

All cat stories start with this statement: “My mother, who was the first cat, told me this...”

I am very glad that kibitzer posted the test poll to test some testing stuff, because it brought me to this section of the forum, and gave me the opportunity to voice my support for that clearly-superior form of delicious baked goodness, the pie.
