Ricky 'The Guvnor' Page is in turmoil as his colleagie Lewis Plummer reckons
an apple pie is a cake but he says an apple pie is a pie.

Who is right?
There is no answer at this time.

Well, it's right there in the name.  It's clearly a pie.

Nelson is right, there is no question:  it is a pie:
"dish baked in pastry-lined pan often with a pastry top"

A cake is basically through and through pastry, even if an upside-down
apple cake has pieces of apple in it.

But Boston Cream Pie is no pie-- it's cake masquerading as pie, an
insidious attack on the morals of our country and children! In some
way, I'm sure. Gimme time to suss it out...

Apple pie is made from pie dough and has a loose filling, it is most
certainly a pie.
