Banana Crumb muffins were the top in 2014

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

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:
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...

In addition to the above, the second favorite (as far as I can tell):
Banana Crumb Muffins

Or maybe this one is #2...depends how you want to "measure":

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...!
