Staff note (Jocelyn Campbell) :

I think the missing photo was of a "piecaken" something like this:

With all of those flavors, what would be the best ice cream to serve with it?

Needs a cheesecake between the layers. Then batter and deep fry.

I developed an instant case of hypoglycemic nausea just looking at it.

There is now a website dedicated to the meatloaf cake: http://www.meatloafcake.com/



My son wants a meatloaf cake for his birthday. Might have to add in the meaty cinnamon rolls (permies thread with recipe), too:

Burra, did you make that Piecaken? Is that a Portugese dessert? or did you find this on the Internet somewhere? website

is the pie baked before loading into the cake batter? etc. EDIT: after looking more closely, I see browned pie crust, so I guess the pie is baked first, then loaded into the batter.

I would prefer blueberry with chocolate. Can't quite wrap my mind around apple pie and chocolate cake layer.

What other flavors of pie would any of you combine with what other flavors of cake? get creative.

and would you frost it with some other frosting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ken, that meat cake looks tasty, did you make that yourself?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jocelyn, those rolls sure look tasty, too.

THANK you all for sharing these culinary creative ideas.

Not mine, I'm afraid. I stumbled on the image on reddit, if I remember rightly, and it was the first time I'd encountered 'piecaken' so I was a bit gobsmacked by the whole concept. Not the sort of thing I'd risk making myself, with my blood sugars!

Portuguese desserts tend to be much simpler and more 'homely'. My village is very fond of filhoses, which are a cinnamon flavoured doughnut. Every woman in the village has her own recipe, and has her own unique way of stretching out the dough and tying it into her own special knot before deep-frying it, usually in a cauldron over an open fire. When my son was smaller we would be given a bag of them from pretty well every woman in the village every Christmas. If we've helped anyone out with something, they tend to give us arroz doce, which is a type of rice-pudding cooked on a shallow tray until set and then decorated with powdered cinnamon. And if we're lucky at Easter time they will open up the old community oven and have a session of cooking honey and orange cakes, which are absolutely delicious, especially when you know that all the eggs, honey and oranges are from the village. Generally this only happens when extended family turn up and all the women of one family will have an afternoon cooking and gossiping together while the men go for a walk in the forest and presumably gossip just as badly as the women do, only they don't admit to it. But the simplest dessert is dried figs, which are usually rock hard and have to be dipped in aguardente to soften them.

How about a more restrained, elegant piecaken. I suggest a Black Forest number: cherry pie inserted into the bowels of darkest chocolate cake.
Actually, let's just get it over with and tip a bottle of kirsch over the thing and set it on fire
Burra, I want your orange and honey gossip cake.
What does the village do for bread? Please tell me they dont swing by the supermarket and pick up some sliced white!

From what I recall, here is a pic similar to the OP:

(Edit: This pic went viral so I'm not sure of the source - might be this blogger.)

Meatloaf cake is happening this weekend around here!

Let there be CAKE! We made and ate meatloaf cake last night!

Meatloaf (followed a GF girl meatloaf recipe with ground pork, ground beef, bacon and grated potato in place of GF bread crumbs) baked in three 8-9" cake pans. They shrunk back from the edges by about an inch, and were uneven and lumpy all around - a frosting challenge to be sure. Plus, we frosted uber-quickly because the mashed potatoes were cooling off rapidly!

Filling was:
onion
bacon
portabellos
garlic
basil
red wine (reduced)
salt, pepper
ketchup
maple syrup

Mashed potatoes were potatoes, butter, salt and white pepper.

While big sister was attempting to use the over-filled pastry bag of mashed potatoes, the boy jokingly said 'you should put flowers all over it.' Sis cheerfully obliged, then attempted to "paint" the flower petals with ketchup. Brother came over with the dijon mustard for the flower centers which ended up looking like yellow-brown turds.

Pictures are crappy cell phone in low light and I missed a good shot of the gorgeous (IMHO-ha!) filling, but oh well. First cut and the meatloaf was still steaming inside - yes! Meat-loving son was swooning with gustatory delight.

Permies inspiration for the Mom win!

Great pics Jocelyn (regardless of the quality)! I had seen savory cakes made with a square loaf of bread and cream cheese, but I had never heard of meatloaf cakes before.

I need to get myself one of those t-shirts so I can be cool too.

It's an old thread, I know. And I'm even ignoring that some of the picture links are broken.

I came here to drop these photos from this story:  https://thoughtnova.com/meat-obsessed-dad-makes-sons-birthday-cake-out-of-5lbs-of-meat-and-mash/a0a0a4i?190=0





This single dad received a dozen marriage proposals from making this cake for his kid!

I now have new meat cake goals. THAT is a thing of beauty, Pearl!

(Plus, isn't a meat cake goal a reasonable life goal? I think so!)

And the gravy takes it to an epic level!!
