The Banana Crumb Muffins seem to be the highest-rated recipe on that particular website. So perhaps they are the most successful, but not necessarily the most popular.

I'm sure there would be enormous regional variations. I wasn't surprised at the most popular recipe search for Ukraine in 2014, according to the following article at "The Independent":

"Ukraine's most searched for recipe on Google is quite something"
http://indy100.independent.co.uk/article/ukraines-most-searched-for-recipe-on-google-is-quite-something--lJibRrA8tx

The top 10 Ukraine Google Recipe searches for 2014 were:

10. Canned cucumber recipe
9. Cheese casserole recipe
8. Pickled courgette recipe
7. Miso soup recipe
6. Cake lollipop recipe
5. "Embroidery" cake recipe
4. Homemade pizza recipe
3. Glaze recipe
2. Easter cake recipe
1. Molotov cocktail recipe

Hello JD- Thank you for looking into this. Those must be quite the muffins. Did they maintain their crown in 2015?

It is not the most popular recipe on internet, but the most folksy traditional one where I live. "green sauce: 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_sauce#German_Gr.C3.BCne_So.C3.9Fe

Great with boiled (if David manages that) potatoes and boiled eggs (the ones that didn't survive uncracked Easter-egg dying).  "Green sauce" also goes very will with boiled meat, fish, anything! if one is a native of Frankfurt am >Main.

David's Boiled Water Recipe highlights the geographical variation in recipes. In Europe and most of the southern hemisphere, everyone uses an electric kettle to boil water rapidly. The recipe is included with every kettle, so there's no need to search the internet for it.

Those poor 'merkins, who must wait for the pot and its water to heat up through innefficient heat transfer between stovetop and pot, instead of heating the water by direct heat transfer from the electric element.

Why has an otherwise-advanced country not adopted the electric kettle method? I think it must be because of the lower capacity of US power outlets, which I think are rated 10 amps at 115 volts (1150 watts). In the UK the outlets are 13 amps at 230 volts (2990 watts). So the UK water boils 2.6 times faster than the same water in a North American kettle. Presumably the North American stovetops are wired to a more robust supply.

brudenell,

I took a more serious look to see if there was a way to address your question.

I conducted a variety of searches like this one:

https://www.google.com/search?num=100&q=%2210k+made+it%22+site%3Aallrecipes.com&oq=%2210k+made+it%22+site%3Aallrecipes.com&gs_l=serp.3...22959.23337.0.24076.2.2.0.0.0.0.77.148.2.2.0....0...1c.1.64.serp..0.0.0.hXNG4lRWsys


adjusting the "X number made it" numbers (10k, 11k, etc) to look for the recipe with the greatest number of folks who have made it. It turned out to be...

https://www.google.com/search?num=100&q=%2214k+made+it%22+site%3Aallrecipes.com&oq=%2214k+made+it%22+site%3Aallrecipes.com&gs_l=serp.3...14522.15484.0.15939.4.4.0.0.0.0.64.218.4.4.0....0...1c.1.64.serp..0.0.0.lUOypyfQGes


Look familiar?

Good morning David- It is interesting to see your approach to this question. Thank you for posting. It is safe to assume lasagna still reigns on Allrecipes.

I am somewhat surprised at the relatively low numbers given the significantly higher count on a YouTube video such as this one:

The discrepancy in numbers probably has to do with apples to oranges (to use a cooking analogy) comparisons.

The video boasts 1,670,461 views. It also has 23,729 thumbs up votes and 2,994 thumbs down.

The lasagna recipe reports 14,000 who "made it" and 9661 reviews. No figures are shown for the number of views of the recipe, though your original link put the number at 12 million and climbing.

Actually making the lasagna and then posting a written review is a much higher hurdle than simply viewing a site or clicking a like/dislike button. For that reason, I don't think the numbers can readily be compared.

Now for a bite of something to eat...!

David
