Pie pans are good for more than just pies. This banana almond pie pan cake is living proof of that point!

Why a Pie Plate or Pan

There’s something fun about using something for what it’s not intended for. Maybe that’s a little kitchen rebel in me, but when I look at anything, I oftentimes imagine the possibilities. And, a pie plate or pie pan is just one of those kitchen thingeees.

Another thing about using this pie plate/pan is that the cake cooks a little faster because this is a thinner layer. Plus, I mean you have to agree, it’s kind of cool how you ‘slice’ it like a pizza pie or cherry pie.

Sometimes something like this is fun to serve because the person receiving it doesn’t expect it to be a cake that’s in the shape of a pie wedge.

Let the rebel in you emerge. Hey, even if it’s with a pie pan! xoxo ~ally
