Third Year Blogaversary Top 10

Wow I can’t believe it’s been 3 years since I claimed this little bit of the Internet so I could share some recipes and other silly musings with you. It’s often been hard work and frustrating (food photography I am looking at you) but always fun. When this time rolls around each year I like to share the top 10 recipes from the last 12 months and share my favourite 10 as well. So without further ado lets get this Third Year Blogaversary Top 10 on the go.

 

1. Amazing Cake Batter Funfetti Cookies

No wonder this was my most popular recipe from the last 12 months, who can resist Funfetti? Easy to make and tastes just like cake batter but in cookie form.

 

2. Light and Fluffy Peanut Butter Banana Layer Cake

I love the fact you are as crazy about peanut butter and banana as me! I make so many recipes with these ingredients, not always together mind you but still quite a few.

3.  Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream Cake

More Peanut Butter for the PB enthusiasts. A great no bake freezer cake, this is a real treat any time of the year but especially in the summer.

 

4. Vegetarian Quorn Goan Curry

A great quick to put together mid week meal or as a vegetarian treat for meatless Monday. Rich and creamy and not overly spicy and all made in one pan.

 

5. Really Rich Gluten Free Coconut Flour Brownies

You don’t need to be gluten sensitive to enjoy these rich fudgy brownies. These are perfect to make if you have a gluten sensitive guest arriving, because the non gluten sensitive guests will never guess so you don’t need to bake two separate treats.

 

6. Caprese Inspired 3 Cheese Macaroni

Cheesey goodness in a summer inspired comfort food. Mac & Cheese is my ultimate comfort food and I eat it all the time. I can’t believe it took me over 2 years to share a recipe with you guys.

7. Peanut Butter and Apple Rice Pudding

I love that you love peanut butter as much as me! I think it must be the worlds favourite food and this is a great way to use it in a pretty healthy dessert or cheeky breakfast.

 

8. French Toast Bagels With Mango Maple Salsa

A great way to use up left over bagels and a real treat for breakfast. The flavours are so fresh and decadent.

 

9. Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes

A cupcake twist on a classic American flavour. This recipe is adapted from my most popular post of all time, Peanut Butter Cupcakes and these are a great variation.

10. Lemon Raspberry Muffins

It seems we all love muffins be it for breakfast, mid morning snack or an afternoon pick-me-up. One thing I am really grateful to this blog for is teaching me to really appreciate muffins for what they are, a great and often healthy treat.

 

My Top 10 From The Last 12 Months

There is some crossovers on my list from the Third Year Blogaversary Top 10,  but there are also some other great recipes here too. As a blog writer, sometimes you create a recipe / post that you absolutely love and are really proud of but it doesn’t always capture the imagination of your readers. So I just wanted to take this chance to shine a little light on some of those recipes from the last 12 months. In no particular order here we go;

 

1. Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake

My first go at a microwave mug cake and I loved it. Cake in 5 minutes, now that’s living the dream! I always held off from trying microwave cakes because I thought they would be awful, but this cake was a fudgy decadent treat packed full of chocolate!

2. Homemade Slow Cooker Spicy Apple Sauce

Homemade is always best and I always have this in my fridge. Slow cooker takes, all the work out of it. Apple sauce may not be expensive to buy but this way I control what goes into it and how much sugar is added, exactly none!

 

3. Spiced Pumpkin Cake with Maple Frosting

Very seasonal flavours but oh so good. I really should make more layer cakes but for some reason I don’t. But this is everything I want in a layer cake, packed full of flavour, tender crumb and oh so moreish.

 

4. Caprese Inspired 3 Cheese Macaroni

As I said above its the ultimate comfort food. And no top 10 of mine would be complete without it.

 

5. Healthy Creamy Sweet and Savoury Avocado Berry Salad

I live off this in the summer, the berries pop with flavour against the more savoury salad ingredients. If you have never added berries to a salad before, promise me you will try it this summer.

6. Amazing Cake Batter Funfetti Cookies

Another crossover but such a great colourful cookie I couldn’t leave it off my list. Boxed cake mix replaces some of the flour in this recipe and gives them a lovely flavour.

 

7. Homemade Mint Oreo’s

Why you can’t buy this flavour in the UK baffles me, but these cookies are a close approximation of the ones I have had in America. A dark chocolate small cookie packed full of mint buttercream a great flavour combination.

 

8. Blueberry Banana Smoothie {Vegan & GF}

Packed full of oats this smoothie will keep you full for hours, so easy to keep Vegan and Gluten Free but not necessary if you don’t need to.

9. Banana Buttermilk Chocolate Chip Bunt Cake

You didn’t seriously think I could have a personal top 10 without a banana cake recipe did you? The buttermilk makes this cake so tender, I adore it.

 

10. Vegetarian Butternut Squash Tomato Pasta Bake

If you are looking for a healthy vegetarian dish them look no further. Easy to make and healthy to boot, easy to make Vegan and Gluten Free by making a few easy swaps.

 

So what will the next 12 months bring? I think I will continue sharing savoury recipes as they seem to be popular and more exploration into Gluten Free baking. I love the idea of being able to bake a treat that doesn’t exclude anyone. The same can be said for Vegan baking, I have thought about going Vegan but I just can’t give up eggs and cheese. Not that I eat all cheeses as you will be surprised just how many cheeses are not vegetarian, but a big bowl of Mac & Cheese just makes me so happy! I’m simple to please I know!

 

Here is to the next 12 months 😀
