The Top 10 Recipes that were the most popular in 2014!
As 2014 is almost over, I think it's time for the annual round up of the most popular recipes on Crunchy Creamy Sweet! I love this list as they all happen to also be our family favorites. I had so much fun creating and photographing all of them (although some photos do need an update!) and I am so glad to see that you guys love them too! It's a proof that you love easy, family-friendly and healthy recipes so you can expect more of those on 2015. And of course, chocolate! Lots and lots of chocolate!
Here is the list along with my favorite comments left by those who made the recipes!
Cinnamon Roll Cake - this cake is insane! So decadent and absolutely addicting! I am working on a lightened up version so be on the look out for it next year! 🙂 My favorite comments on this cake:
from Bea: This recipe is fabulously delicious!! I made this cinnamon roll cake on Christmas morning and my boys and neighbors loved it! Now my oldest son has asked me to bake it again, so here I go! (Note to self: Print this recipe, its a keeper!)
from Mandy: I think it’s a great base recipe. I made it today for work and it was a huge hit. The variations could be fun. Using orange or lemon zest in place of cinnamon? Or cardamom and almond? Cinnamon and slivered almonds- would taste like those candied almonds from the fair! Or browned butter and bacon in the cake??! OMG. Now I want to make this again.
What to do with over-ripe bananas? - this list is very popular and just proves to me that we all love baking with super ripe bananas. I have three kiddos so bananas here never feel lonely on the counter. In fact, I have to buy them to bake with them! 🙂 This list is packed with recipes from my fellow bloggers. I added photos and the number of bananas needed for each recipe. Enjoy!
Easy Cheesy Garlic Bread - As soon as I shared this cheesy bread on the blog, it.went.viral. It got 20,000 pins on Pinterest within the first week! And to no surprise! We all love an easy cheesy bread! My family does too and so much that we've created few more versions of it. Check them all out! My favorite comment:
from Erica: Ugh, this looks so damn delicious. I’m starving, and your site is NOT helping…I want EVERYTHING!!!
Homemade Nutella - chocolate and hazelnuts whipped up into one fabulous spread. Right in your kitchen. That had to be a winner recipe!
Cheesy Spinach Dip Chicken Pasta - I am so happy to see this recipe make it to the top 10 list! It's a huge family favorite! As soon as I made it for the first time, I knew you guys will love it too and I was right! This recipe has been made by so many of you! Here is my favorite comment:
from Kelsey: I made this and it is seriously amazing. Probably the best thing I have ever made at home. My boyfriend was amazed and said it was like something you would expect to get at a restaurant. Embarrassing enough to admit between the two of us we ate the whole thing and then we’re sad we didn’t have leftovers. Not our proudest moment but it was SO good.
The Best Homemade Pizza Dough - Making pizza at home is easy and we proved it to you with our photo tutorial. You left comments saying how much you love this recipe and can finally make one amazing pizza at home. Everybody wins! Our favorite comment:
from Amanda: Just came across this recipe on Pinterest. I LOVE pizza. I have tried 3 other pizza dough recipes and so far this one IS THE BEST. (Also the first one I’ve used with yeast) Fantastic! Thank you for sharing!!
Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake - This is one of the most decadent cakes I have ever made. It looks amazing and tastes even better. It may look intimidating but so many of you made it with success even if you don't bake often.
Whipped Milk Ice Cream - An ice cream recipe that requires only two ingredients. Crazy? Yes! And so so delicious! You have to make it!
The Best Apple Crumb Cake - It took me three tries to get this cake like I envisioned it. It had to have the perfect amount of apples that don't get lost in the cake and a ton of crumb topping. And it does! My favorite comment:
from Randa: Oh my…this was delicious. I didn’t have any Apple cider vinegar so I substituted lemon juice, it turned out amazing. My husband, who rarely eats any sweets, helped himself to two big pieces. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!
Peanut Butter Energy Bites - Energy bites can't be more easy and tasty than this. I always have a container of these little balls in my fridge. They are a definite favorite in our family and I am so happy to see them on this list!
One of those recipes that almost made the list is my One-Hour Skillet Focaccia. Few months ago, I received the sweetest comment on it and just have to share it here with you.
