With the end of the year quickly approaching, I'm sharing the recipes you loved in 2023.
Make It Dough had over 700K page views(!!!) and more of you made my recipes this year than ever before.
I'm truly grateful for your continued support in visiting Make It Dough, enabling me to create new recipes and explore the boundless potential of sourdough. Thank you!
Top Recipe of the Year
This year's top post highlights your appreciation for sourdough discard bread. These recipes combine the convenience of commercial yeast with the deep and nuanced flavor of sourdough discard.
Once again, Basic Sourdough Bread didn't make the list, indicating your preference for exploring creative sourdough starter recipes on Make It Dough.
I'm most surprised by how much you guys loved my recipe for Raspberry Preserves! It was one of the 10 most visited pages on the site. However, since it doesn't contain sourdough I left it out of this year's list.
A personal recipe development highlight for me this year was nailing Sourdough Brownies. Mastering brownies, especially achieving that coveted shiny top, is a challenge that many bakers understand. I'm thrilled to have finally created the brownie recipe of my dreams. They made the list, so I'm delighted to know that you guys loved them as much as I do.
Baking better bread
Additionally, I've published more bread baking guides designed to assist you in refining your techniques and creating better sourdough bread at home. The most popular posts include guides on How to Score Sourdough Bread and Baking Bread without a Dutch Oven.
