Except for the order, the top 5 posts in 2016 here at I Sing In The Kitchen are the same as they were in 2015! I guess it goes to show that everyone loves a great dessert.
Here we go.
Coming in at Number 1, up from it’s number 3 place in the top 5 in 2015, are the divine Lemonies pictured above. A fusion of lemon bars and brownies, they’re packed with lemon flavor and sport a tangy glaze that hardens a bit as it sets. Delicious
Dropping to number 2 from last year’s number 1 spot is the showstopper of a cake in the photo above. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Overload Cake was also number 2 in 2014, the year I first made it. Who is not going to love “a super chocolatety cake covered in a not too sweet, silky smooth peanut butter icing and topped with a rich chocolate ganache…. and on top.. a good dose of chopped peanut butter cups.” Yum.
Number 3 this year is last year’s number 2. Crunchers, which have made the top 5 list the past 4 years, are well deserving of all the popularity.
Here’s how I described them: “Crunchers are dessert bars which combine a buttery graham caramel layered between crackers and topped with a chocolate-peanut butter-butterscotch coating.
Incredibly sinful and totally recommended. At once sweet and salty, Crunchers are a butterscotch version of homemade Twix Candy Bars.”
Caramel Cake, number 5 in 2015, has moved up to last year’s 4th most popular post. Starting with a boxed mix this very light textured vanilla cake gets “cloaked in an incredibly rich and sweet caramel icing that hardens up into a delectable shell.” Super terrific.
And last but not least is yet another veteran of the ISITK Top Five.
Number 5 for 2016 is Crunchers Revisited. It’s a careful remaking of Crunchers to try and trouble shoot some of the problems brought to my attention in the comments section. They really are an exceptional dessert.
I think I might do a post this week about some of my favorite recipes that I made in the last year. And some might not even contain sugar. Boo! :)
Onto the music.
How about another kind of Dessert to go along with that top 5 list?
“Player”, from LA-based band Dessert, is weird and wonderful. There is enough electro-pop for dancing but plenty of interesting listening if you are sitting still.
