OK, baking isn't exactly a new discovery for WW members: Our two-ingredient dough is a perennial top performer. But in this year of cabin-fever quarantine baking, members tracked the recipe a whopping 403,000 times—often as a base for cinnamon rolls, mini hand pies, and more. Banana bread blew up in the baking category, too, anchoring itself in the year’s no. 2 spot. That being said, baking wasn’t just about sweet desserts and snacks this past year. Savory recipes for buttery biscuits, pizza crust, and cream cheese muffins with smoked salmon also appeared among the top 20 entries. Check out the full list of baking hits below (and note that we compiled the year’s top chocolate recipes in a whole separate article—they were that popular).
