Best of The Redhead Baker: 2016

At the end of the year, I always pause and look back on the most popular posts from 2016. Did your favorite make the list? 

Best of The Redhead Baker: 2016

Another year has come to a close. It had its ups (I finally got a full-time, permanent job, and I love the work that I'm doing; my blog reached a milestone 100K pageviews in a single year; and, oh yeah, Dave and I got married!) and it's downs.

At this time each year, I look back at the most popular recipes that I published on the blog this year, based on pageviews. The list doesn't include popular posts that were published last year or earlier.

Before I get to the list, I want to thank all of you who read my blog, whether you've been reading for years, or this is your first time here. I'll be posting a survey early in the new year to find out what you like seeing on the blog, and what you want to see more of!

16. Mini Brioche

Decadent, buttery brioche is a yeast dough enriched with eggs. Serve with a light spread of your favorite fruit preserves. #BrunchWeek

15. Vanilla Pear Brioche Bread Pudding

Vanilla-pear bread pudding baked in muffin tins are an easy, delicious, portion-controlled dessert. Serve warm with a drizzle of white chocolate sauce.

14. Pumpkin Brulee Tart

Move over, classic pumpkin pie! Pumpkin brulee tart has a custard-like spiced pumpkin filling baked in a chocolate cookie tart shell, then is sprinkled with sugar and bruleed. #PumpkinWeek

13. Red Velvet Quick Bread

This month's #TwelveLoaves is all about RED! I made an easy red velvet quick bread with sweetened cream cheese swirl. Enjoy a slice for breakfast for dessert!

12. Loukoumades (Greek Honey Fritters)

Light, airy puffs of dough are fried, then coated in a sweet honey syrup. Greeks traditionally served them as dessert, but they're equally delicious at breakfast! #SundaySupper

11. Carolina-Style Barbecue Sauce

Carolina-style barbecue sauce has a base of mustard and vinegar with just a bit of tomato sauce, unlike other regional barbecue sauces. It's spicy and tangy and delicious on everything!

10. Salted Caramel Cream Puffs

Sweet cream puffs are filled with salted caramel pastry cream, then topped with rich chocolate ganache. Finger food for dessert! #SundaySupper

9. Strawberries and Cream Sweet Rolls

8. Frozen Pina Colada

Have a taste of the tropics with a homemade frozen pina colada: a blend of ice, pineapple slices and juice, coconut cream and rum. #SundaySupper

7. No-Churn Peach Pie Ice Cream

This peach pie ice cream is flavored with roasted peaches and has a swirl of graham cracker crumb crust, and no ice cream maker is required to make it! #SundaySupper

6. No-Bake Key Lime Pie Parfaits

Key lime pie parfaits — all the flavor of the pie without the work! This no-bake layered dessert is quick and easy to make. #BrunchWeek

5. Iced Caramel Coffee

Don't spend big bucks on coffeehouse caramel coffee anymore! It's so easy to make your own brunch-worthy iced caramel coffee at home! #BrunchWeek

4. Pretzel Bites with Honey Mustard Dip

Pretzel bites with honey mustard dip are a versatile snack for kids of all ages. Enjoy a few any time you need a sweet-and-salty snack! #ProgressiveEats

3. Bruschetta Pizza

Bruschetta pizza is loaded with fresh summer tomatoes, basil and garlic over lots of melted mozzarella cheese. What better flavor for summer pizza? #ProgressiveEats

2. Creme Anglaise

1. Lemoncello Tiramisu

Lemoncello tiramisu adds a burst of bright flavor to the traditional layered Italian dessert. #SundaySupper
