The Top American Recipe of 2022
The number of recipes out there is staggering, and finding the most popular recipe in 2022 can be daunting. A Google search by York Test revealed that the Magic Cake is the most sought-after American baking recipe in 2022. This French dessert’s magic comes from its unique batter creating three distinct layers as it bakes, eliminating the need for three pans. Like magic, the ingredients bake into a fluffy, sponge top layer, creamy middle layer, and a firm, custard bottom layer. There are many variations of the Magic Cake recipe. This one requires four ingredients and is easy to make, whether you’re a baking newbie or a top chef.
Most Popular Pandemic Recipe
Changes and trends from the pandemic lockdown still echo through our lives. Stay-at-home or remote work is increasing, staycations are more appealing, and a greater number of people are spending more time in the kitchen. Food & Wine calls out this banana bread recipe as a top ranking choice during the pandemic. Make this classic that inspired bakers in 2020, whether it’s the Food & Wine version or one with a twist.
Best Vintage Recipe
Vintage or retro trends circle back around, showing up in fashion, home decor…and baking. For this recipe, we travel back to the 60s for the Tunnel of Fudge Cake, an era that also gave us tie-dye and ponchos, which are still popular today. You can’t go wrong with a classic.
New Thanksgiving Dessert
With Thanksgiving upon us, it’s the perfect time to try a new dessert. Save that pumpkin pie for another day and give Spoon University’s new Apple Cinnamon Roll Cake a try. A fresh twist on dessert will add a unique and delicious element to the day if you are cooking a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Combine the fall-like flavors of an apple cinnamon roll with cake, and top it with glaze. It’s sure to be a memorable dessert!
