Greatest hits: the most searched recipes of 2013

We all have our favourite go-to recipes. It might be the one for curry with the combination of spices you can never quite remember, or that epic brownie with sinful amounts of caramel and chocolate. Pinterest tells us that chicken recipes are the most popular for pinning, probably closely followed by those unspeakable ‘casserole’ concoctions calling for crushed orange chips and cheese out of a tube.

Here at Eat Out things are a little more sophisticated, but still utterly delicious. Judging by the list below, our readers place a lot of trust in celebrity chefs’ recipes. (And we don’t blame them, with tempting dishes like James Martin’s sticky toffee pudding and Antonio Carluccio’s mushroom risotto on offer.)

There’s also an understandable interest in baking, with top slots going to red velvet cake, six-minute chocolate cake and microwave mug cake. We fully support your lifestyle choices.

But whatever your proclivities, you’re bound to find a handful of recipes worth trying. So strap yourselves in and enjoy our greatest hits compilation of the most-viewed recipes for 2013.
