Best of The Redhead Baker 2018

A round-up of the most popular posts published in 2018 on The Redhead Baker blog, as determined by you -- the readers!

Best of The Redhead Baker 2018

As the year winds down, it's time for the annual "Best of" wrap-up, where I feature the most popular posts from the 88 recipes I published this past year, as determined by number of pageviews.

First, I want to thank all of you who come to read my blog, share my recipes on social media, leave comments, and ask questions. I started this blog because I love cooking and baking, and I hope that I've helped you discover new recipes, new techniques, and new confidence in the kitchen.

Now that the mushy stuff is over, without further delay ...

10. Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart

This is a family favorite in our house, too!

This decadent chocolate peanut butter tart has a sweet chocolate crust, a custardy peanut butter filling, and a rich chocolate glaze. It uses just a few ingredients, and requires almost no baking!

9. Fudgy Chocolate Bundt Cake

Chocolate bundt cake plus white chocolate glaze? What's not to love?

8. Tiramisu Cheesecake

Two desserts in one!

7. Honeycrisp Apple Crumble

I, for one, am not surprised that this classic comfort food made the "Best of" list.

Honeycrisp apple crumble is an easy, delicious dessert. The chopped apples are baked with an oat/brown sugar topping. Add ice cream just before serving, which melts into a creamy sauce. 

6. Air-Fried Philly Cheesesteak Empanadas

It's not often that a savory recipe makes the "Best of" list on this blog, but this was a good one!

5. Peanut Butter Mousse Parfaits

This was one of my all-time favorite blog recipes!

4. Hazelnut Coffee Syrup

No need to spend tons of money on store-bought flavored syrups!

It's so easy to make your own delicious hazelnut coffee syrup at home! It only takes three ingredients and a few minutes.

3. Irish Mac and Cheese

See, this is why I love "Best of" roundups — I'm reminded of great recipes that I need to make again!

2. White Chocolate Mocha Layer Cake

I'm not surprised that this fantastic cake was a big hit with readers.

1. Blood-Red Pomegranate Margaritas

In another surprise, this is the ONLY cocktail on the "Best of" list! But it's a good one!

And some honorable mentions ...
