The Best of Brown Eyed Baker in 2011: The 10 Most Popular Recipes

As 2011 winds to a close it’s time for the annual roundup of the most popular recipes that were posted during the year. It wouldn’t be a New Year’s Eve weekend without it! As usual, there were a variety of treats that made the list but surprisingly only one cookie! It seems that this year’s list was pretty evenly split between appetizers, cupcakes and chocolate/peanut butter concoctions. I always look forward to putting this list together and uncovering which of the recipes were among the reader favorites for the year. So much fun! Enjoy the little trip down the foodie memory lane; perhaps you’ll even uncover a recipe you missed or forgot about it!

    I have made quite a few of your recipes this year. The one recipe I made the most was your grandma’s banana bread! Delish! I also made your triple chocolate cookies, oreo cheesecake cookies, beer and brown sugar kielbasa and sauerkraut, buffalo chicken dip and thick and chewy chocolate chip cookies. I am sure I made more, but those are the ones that immediately popped in my head. I can’t wait to see what your cook/bake up in 2012! Happy New Year!

    My husband just loves that salsa. I make a batch about once a month.


  11. Jennifer@Peanut Butter and Peppers on December 30, 2011 at 9:07 am

    I’ve made your restaurant style salsa and it is the best! I’ve must of made it a dozen of times! All your recipes look wonderful!

    I can’t seem to get enough, everything makes my mouth water, new follower πŸ™‚


  28. Angela on December 31, 2011 at 12:58 am

    My favorite on this list is the salsa. I have made this several times and I have to say, it has spoiled me. I can’t even eat the store bought jarred salsa anymore. πŸ˜‰


  29. Ryan on December 31, 2011 at 1:56 am

    Ahhh these all look so great! I want to try every single one. The buffalo chicken dip is gonna be first and it’s gonna be delicious πŸ˜€


  30. Kylie on December 31, 2011 at 2:22 pm

    The Pumpkin Scones are my FAVORITE, with the Chubby Hubby Truffles second. THANK YOU for inspiring me in the kitchen with your posts!!


  31. john on January 3, 2012 at 10:07 am

    I made the restaurant style salsa for NYE. It was a huge hit! Thanks for reposting!


  32. maria on January 3, 2012 at 10:15 am

    My favorite was the IRISH CAR BOMB cupcakes too! I’ve made them at least a dozen times this past year. They freeze well even with the frosting, and EVERYONE loves them! They are the moistest cupcakes I’ve ever tasted and they are so delicious. The frosting is heavenly and I never knew I could bake until I made these. πŸ™‚
    THANK YOU for sending us daily fabulous recipe emails!

    Happy 2012!
