    Cake is crumbly and not worth it. CHEESECAKE however is different. Graham cracker crust omg

    Cake is tricky... not big on cake in general, but carrot cake? YUP. Death by chocolate?? Count me in. Lava?? heck yeah. But red velvet... meh... coffee cake? no thanks.

    Pie is better than cake, but of cake, carrot cake and coffee cake are both among the best.

    I'll pass on red velvet, as well as lava, and death by chocolate. Too much chocolate and more chocolate ruins a cake IMO.

    Strongly disagree on your "too much chocolate" comment... but agree with pie being better! Banana cream! French Silk! Cherry! Yes...

    My fellow dislikers of cake! That's the first thing that came to mind when I saw this thread. I've not met others before who dislike it. Some of it is only meh--rather than disliked--and I do enjoy some (coffee cake is a winner with me), but usually I don't like it. I loathe most frostings, way too sweet.

    I also don't like soda and find most mass produced desserts here in the US grossly sweet/tasteless beyond sugar.

    Bad cake is bad, and I'm a most cake is meh person, but good cake is good, and IMO good cake does not have super sweet icing. There are a variety of icing options out there.

    Agree about the icing options--it's the overly sweet frostings that I loathe, and I find most of them too sweet. But the ones that don't fall in that camp can be tasty to me. I'd put even good cake way towards the bottom of my list of foods I enjoy, though. Well, flour-based cakes. I love cheesecake.

    Yes, I can't stand supermarket birthday cake and when I bake I often reduce the sugar by 1/3 - 1/2.

    Ugh, supermarket bday cake. :s Sorry, this might be obvious, but what's a "JOC" recipe?

    Sorry, "Joy of Cooking" - my cooking bible and encyclopedia. It taught me how to cook when I left home and realized I didn't know how :lol:

    My library system has it and yours might too.

    Butter on pancakes is disgusting

    Omg I love butter and whipped cream on pancakes! They taste so much better. Worth the cals everytime :)

    SAME! Love WHIPPED butter on pancakes. Makes a difference! With warm berries... yum! I'll pass on the maple syrup though. THAT is a wastye of calories imo

    Ohh see I love syrup too. Whipped butter or cream, berries, syrup. Yum. I have calories coming out of my ears so load er up ;)

    Thanks @kshama2001. I've actually never read that classic! I love cooking and learning about food, so I'll definitely check it out.

    I love most Vietnamese food, but I think pho is usually kind of nasty and VERY overrated.

    I'm not a fan of cakes but love black forest cake. It's probably because I love cherries.

    Not disgusting, IMO, but entirely pointless--adds nothing, and therefore a waste of cals.

    I'm definitely on this team.

    I guess I fall somewhere in between Nooshi and lemurcat though because I think it takes the pancakes down a notch from being perfectly delicious, but doesn't ruin them. Definitely a big waste of calories.

    10000% agree, especially the ones my mom makes. Pancakes are a take it or leave it for me. I've had them maybe 10 times in my entire life because I usually find myself opting for something else.

    I still really like pancakes... made with buttermilk and lemon juice... extra fluffy. With fresh blueberry compote. Reminds me of childhood.

    @pancakerunner that looks delish :)

    I love crepes and pancakes. Oh and French toast. I love it all. (Can you tell I love food? :p )

    I don't love beets, chestnuts, liver, pumpkin pie or strong smelly cheeses. But I will eat them occasionally depending on my mood and how they are prepared.

    No to butter (especially the whipped variety) on pancakes. That goes for maple syrup/jam/honey, etc., too...I just like them plain - weird I guess lol!

    However I don't 'mind' some butter on a biscuit...I like them plain for sure though (scones too)

    This one looks yummo! I love cakes with various 'textures' ie. that is why carrot cake is the 🐐
