What are we waiting for? Let's dive right into our 10 most popular recipes of all time, which you may already be familiar with. Curtain up!

10th Place

As befits an American cheesecake, cookie crumbs adorn the base, which is then topped with a generous mixture of cream cheese and sour cream. In our house, this is a true classic that never fails to capture hearts–especially when served with fresh berries.

9th Place

Whether it's called French toast or Arme Ritter in German, bathed in milk and pan-fried, this brunch classic transforms stale bread into an absolute staple–the golden delight on our list!

8th Place

Colors, colors, and warmth! Our legendary vegan sweet potato curry is packed with fresh veggies that you can customize to your liking, guaranteed to bring good cheer to your plate.

7th Place

Nothing like the smell of a freshly baked tray of cookies coming out of the oven! With your first bite into these "chewy" cookies, you'll forget everything going on around you for a moment. This recipe is an absolute MUST!

6th Place

The Italian dessert classic par excellence has also become a staple on our platform! Layers of ladyfingers, velvety mascarpone and aromatic coffee make it simply irresistible – even if you're actually already "too full" for dessert.

5th Place

This small chocolate dream defines delectable in the world of desserts. Everything we have dreamed of before, this recipe actually makes it come true, letting us melt away with its soft core inside.

4th Place

One-pot recipes have been one of our most beloved discoveries! This simple pasta version with cherry tomatoes, baby spinach, and Parmesan is sure to succeed, but at the same time is incredibly aromatic and intense in flavor. And best of all, of course, the minimal washing up!

3rd Place

Butter chicken in mildly spiced tomato sauce

Inspired by the Indian take-out classic, this homemade version is just as delicious, likely healthier and even more flavorful. Tender chicken breast goes swimming in a super creamy, rich tomato sauce and deservedly takes the bronze medal.

2nd Place

Easy Italian lasagna

Feel-good, comfort food at its finest, from which you know exactly what to expect: Intensely savory Bolognese sauce, pasta cooked al dente, creamy bechamel, and a golden-brown Parmesan crust–a warm embrace for stomach and soul and thus a well-deserved second place.

And now, *drum roll* please....

1st Place

Fluffy buttermilk pancakes
