    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.

    I thought I saw you posted a lot of gourmet cake photos in here though? But no to COFFEE CAKE?! I loveeeeee coffee cake. (Only ones like this with tons of cinnamon streusel topping.) I agree though about cake. I am also not a fan of cake except carrot or cheesecake. I'd take cookies over cake anyday. 83qpntoouhaj.png

    Oh, don't get me wrong. LOVE a good mousse cake or death by chocolate! And carrot cake... But just generic boxed cake is... undesirable. And I guess I've just had too many dry coffee cakes? But these look good!

    As far as desserts go, I'm team brownie and team pie!

    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...

    I like biscuits, but I don't like honey butter. Honey, good, or butter, good (better, IMO, for biscuits or bread in general), but not both together.

    I also cannot stand honey mustard or honey mustard dressings.

    I think that's my deal with pancakes and butter -- I do like maple syrup, and as an alternative I like heating up blueberries or other berries and putting them on pancakes, but mixing that with butter seems weird and unnecessary.

    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.

    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.
