Most Popular Recipes of 2017

This is a list of the ten most popular recipes on this site for this past year, but I know one short list can’t speak for all of you (or the other 200+ recipes in the archives). If you don’t see your favorite E2 Bakes recipe on this list, feel free to tell me about it in the comments or on social media—I love seeing what you bake up!

With just three days to go before we launch into 2018, let’s see which of my recipes y’all loved the most over the last year.

Most Popular Recipes of 201710) Overnight Yeast-Raised Doughnuts

This is easily my favorite recipe of 2017 and was featured on The Kitchn’s Instagram feed! These shop-quality doughnuts are made in three simple steps before being dipped in a chocolate glaze and showered with rainbow sprinkles. Oh, and they’re literally the best doughnuts I’ve ever had. Ever. Ever ever ever.

Most Popular Recipes of 20179) Sweet Cherry Shortbread Bars

These shortbread bars are a twist on classic sweet cherry pie, but waaaaaay easier than making pie. A quick shortbread dough serves as the base and topping for these bars, with a layer of nutmeg-scented sweet cherries in between—yum! Cherries are out of season in the winter of course, but you may use frozen or canned or go in a more seasonal direction and make these Apple Shortbread Bars.

Most Popular Recipes of 20178) Iced Sugar Cookies {Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies & Quick-Dry Royal Icing}

Everybody loves the look of Iced Sugar Cookies, but the flavor can be hit-or-miss. After years of tinkering and messing with piping bags, I’m happy to report that these cookies are even more delicious than they are beautiful.

Most Popular Recipes of 20177) Cashew Butter Snickerdoodles {Vegan & Gluten-Free}

These little cookies were a happy accident. Their formula is based on the popular three-ingredient peanut butter cookie recipe, but uses cashew butter instead. This take on classic Snickerdoodles is a favorite among my vegan and gluten-free friends, but I am neither of those things and I’m crazy about ‘em, too.

Most Popular Recipes of 20176) No-Churn Banana Pudding Ice Cream

This was last year’s #1 recipe and I’m so happy it made the list again in 2017! If you love banana pudding, ice cream, and easy recipes, this one’s for you. Maybe wait til it’s not 18 degrees outside to make it though.

Most Popular Recipes of 20175) Chipotle-Sweet Potato Hummus & Homemade Pita Chips

Smoky, spicy, sweet, savory, hearty, and nutritious—all these words describe my Chipotle-Sweet Potato Hummus! It’s made with roasted sweet potato and chickpeas and, paired with my easy baked pita chips, makes a great mid-afternoon snack. You could also stretch it into a light lunch with a side salad.

Most Popular Recipes of 20174) Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cookies

This slightly lower calorie alternative to traditional Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies was an instant hit when I posted it last year. It makes perfect sense, of course—who doesn’t love soft, chewy, chocolaty cookies?!

Most Popular Recipes of 20173) Marzipan Bundt Cake

Marzipan is one of my favorite candies, and this bundt cake showcases its sweet almond flavor in a totally irresistible way! This recipe is a Pinterest favorite, and with its beautiful texture and stunning appearance, it’s easy to see why.

Most Popular Recipes of 20172) Cashew Butter Ginger Cookies {Vegan & Gluten-Free}

Y’all seem to love cashew butter cookies. This recipe, made with molasses and ginger and given a roll in sugar, is a new holiday favorite of mine. I especially love that I can share these cookies with my gluten-free vegan friends—I love inclusive treats.

Most Popular Recipes of 20171) Cornmeal Pancakes {Vegan & Gluten-Free} with Blackberry Compote

I love that a recipe I created while in my favorite place is the current most-popular recipe on this site. These soft, not-too-sweet Cornmeal Pancakes were a hit with my friends this past summer (despite their unusual egg swap), and it seems like y’all love them too.

How many times have I said “love” in this post? It feels like a lot. But I do love baking, running this site, and you all for reading it, and I hope you have a wonderful start to 2018. See you next year!
