10:28 pm: cake or pie?
Not asking which is better. Of course pie is better. Asking whether you think this recipe, which calls itself "Impossible Pumpkin Pie", counts as pie. It has no crust. You mix a little flour and baking powder into the pumpkin custard. It is more like pumpkin bread around the edges, more pie-like in the middle; Paul Hollywood would say it's raw but what does he know.

it does look cake-like but somewhat resembles something i have seen called brownie pie.

In the UK, that'd be a pudding, which avoids the cake/pie question altogether.

I've learned a lot about Paul Hollywood's preferences since I started watching The Great British Bake Off (currently about 2/3 through Season 3).

1. Don't use the food processor to make pie dough -- should be done manually.

2. Don't use the kneading attachment on the Kitchen Aid for kneading bread dough -- should be done manually.

3. Almost any amount of alcohol in a recipe will cause him to complain that all he can taste is the alcohol.

4. Also, he has weird ideas about the relative sweetness of American and British desserts.

Man, that looks fabulous, even if I do prefer cake over pie.
