I've been steaming over this for a bit now, and I can come up with nothing other than:

A Cow pie; that being the pile of dung left by a cow, as well as a chocolately sweet (I'm familiar with the packaged candy from Baraboo, WI, but it also appears that there are "no-bake" cow pie/pile/patty recipes which popped after just searching those name variants).

I'm quick, I'm easy

No bake recipes are often less time consuming and involved, since no cooking is needed. It goes without saying that it's very easy for cows to make their pies.

You can make me in a jiffy

Again, with no time in the oven, those patties would be done in the time it takes them to set.

I'm on a farm
I'm in your kitchen
I'm in the pasture

Cows are on farms and roam the pastures, so this is where they leave their pies (Definitely Wisconsin...). And the kitchen is where you would make the confectionery variety.

I lay, I rot, in more places than one

Fields can be littered with pies.

I'm smelly, but I'm also very tasty

The cow's version is smelly, the chocolate is tasty.

I have nicknames but I prefer one

The origin is cow dung, but the cows' presentation of the dung likens it to a pie, a patty, or a pile (plus cow chips), which lead to us humans wanting chocolate in the same appetizing aesthetic. Lots of nicknames, but I think cow pie is most common.

What am I?

A cow pie/patty/pile/chip etc., of which the edible variety is a no bake treat, as the title hints. (The cow variety could be baked by the sun and then burned by settlers, but that's neither here nor there)

    $\begingroup$ @Blake Thanks, and great riddle. It makes me hungry, so I'm glad I can enjoy a cow pie without having to plan a trip to the Dells. $\endgroup$ – raisinghellyer Aug 25 '15 at 15:16
  • $\begingroup$ @raisinghellyer I googled cow pie and gives me something that WON'T makes me hungry... or there are different meanings? $\endgroup$ – Alex Aug 25 '15 at 17:18

    $\begingroup$ @Alex Yes, there are different meanings. If you just google cow pie, you'll see actual cow dung pies, but still should be able to see a link to the Baraboo candy I referenced in my answer (but maybe I get that result due to my proximity to Wisconsin). If you add "chocolate" to your search, you will see the other definition. Or look up the name variants, like cow pile; the first link is for no bake cookies, which is how I knew I was on the right path. $\endgroup$ – raisinghellyer Aug 25 '15 at 17:36

Maybe you are talking about

a cheese


  • I'm quick, I'm easy

No idea for this one.

  • You can make me in a jiffy

Cheese can be handmade.

  • I'm on a farm
  • I'm in your kitchen
  • I'm in the pasture

Cheese can be found on a farm (cheese production), in a kitchen (on a cheese plate) and in the pasture (goat milk that is used for cheese).

  • I lay, I rot, in more places then one
  • I'm smelly, but I'm also very tasty

Some cheese smells a lot and they .. "extend" with age (they overflow). The more they smell, the tastier they are.

  • I have nicknames but I prefer one

They are many varieties of cheese. They can be called by their specific name ... or by the classic "cheese".

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ "Note- You may not recognize the nickname". I doubt 'cheese' would be that nickname, because most English speakers would have heard of the word 'cheese'. $\endgroup$ – CodeNewbie Aug 25 '15 at 10:01
  • $\begingroup$ We may not recognize that nickname because they is no "cheese" member on puzzling stack exchange :D $\endgroup$ – The random guy Aug 25 '15 at 10:43
  • $\begingroup$ That's a good guess but not quite $\endgroup$ – Blake Aug 25 '15 at 13:49

Are you

Cornbread

I'm quick, I'm easy

It really doesn't take much time to throw together cornbread

You can make me in a jiffy

Jiffy mix

I'm on a farm

Corn comes from farms and cornbread is considered a farm staple

I'm in your kitchen

It's food, where else would you find it?

I'm in the pasture

Cornbread (or it's early descendants) was often taken by shepherds into a pasture as food. Also, this could be a play on the fields where corn is grown?

I lay, I rot, in more places then one

Corn and cornbread can be found all over the world

I'm smelly, but I'm also very tasty

No one says smells have to be bad :P

I have nicknames but I prefer one

There are many names for cornbread: cornbread, johnny cakes, corncakes, hushpuppies, etc.
