The end of the year is weird. My body is composed mostly of cookies at this point. I keep having to check to see what day it is, which means I'm never quite sure what I'm supposed to be doing on any given day. BUT I do love to reminisce a bit, and for the blog that means checking out the 10 Best Baking Recipes of 2021!
2020 was a doozy of a year, and we all thought 2021 would be different. It definitely wasn't what we had all hoped, but with these recipes, it wasn't all bad!! These are the 10 Best Baking Recipes of 2021, the most popular recipes on the blog this year!
Full disclosure: I specified that these are the top 10 *baking* recipes because, technically speaking, Homemade Chocolate Extract and Homemade Kahlua were in the top 10 this year! I just couldn't bear to keep those non-dessert recipes in there and skip out on others that involved baking...and it's my blog so I make the rules. 😉 But, just so you know, both of those recipes are fantastic and you should check those out, too. 😀
It's a little weird to think about this coconut-pineapple dream in late December because it just screeeeeams summer, but I think you can see why it was so popular this year!
I love these little gems, and have plans to reshoot this recipe so I can brag about them even more in 2022!
It's no wonder that this pie was so popular in 2021--this pie is a showstopper!
I am in LOVE with this galette! It's incredible that this recipe made the top 10, since I didn't share it until mid-October! This baby deserves it's place--soooo delicious!
This is one beautiful cake! I don't think I shared it on social once the entire year--and it's still in the Top 10! I think this baby deserves a facelift with some new photos this year so it looks as gorgeous as it tastes!
This is another oldie-but-goodie recipe! This recipe took off on Pinterest in 2021 and became one of my most popular recipes of the year!
Okay, so the heading says blueberry, but the link below says strawberry. That's because I switched out the strawberries for blueberries in my Strawberry Angel Food Cake recipe and you guys went bonkers for it! It's no wonder, either, with its gorgeous color and fantastic flavor!! Click on the blog post to see the gorgeous purple color of the blueberry version!
The color, the flavor, and the creamy texture can't be beat in this pie! It's rich and refreshing at the same time!
Year after year this recipe makes the Top 10! This is an old family recipe, and definitely the bake I make most in my kitchen! My family never tires of these muffins!
Dun dun dahhhh! These Honey Sugar Cookies take the #1 spot in 2021! No doubt because I shared them sooo many times on social media. They're simple, delicious, and they work for all holidays and gatherings. Check out the blog post to see the different kinds of patterned cookies that I made with them this year!
This wraps up my 10 Best Baking Recipes of 2021! If there's one thing the past few years has taught me, it's that all I know is: I don't know. 😉 I'll continue to roll with the punches and do my best. And of course I'll be baking! I have big plans for the blog and lots of new recipe ideas to share with you in 2022.
Wishing you and yours a very happy, healthy, sweet new year! <3
