5. Lactose-Free No-Bake Blueberry Cheesecake

This is the only No-bake popular recipe of 2021. This is a lactose-free dessert which I wanted to add to my collection because I am slightly lactose intolerant.

Silky smooth is what I would describe this Lactose-Free No-Bake Blueberry Cheesecake. This recipe is lactose-free with no baking required. The tart blueberries balance the sweet cream cheese mixture to create perfection.

Cranberry White Chocolate Scones recipe released for the Holidays. I’m not surprised this recipe is popular for 2021. The flavour profile is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Tart cranberries, sweet white chocolate chips and tang of buttermilk. It truly is the perfect Holiday scone.

Its no wonder why this a popular recipe of 2021.

2. Pumpkin Pie Spice Scones

Fall baking is very popular due to Thanksgiving for Canada and the USA. Pumpkin spice is probably the “spice of the season” because of the very trendy Starbucks drink “Pumpkin Spice Latte”. This recipe was tricky to create because pumpkin puree adds so much moisture to scone dough. However, the end result is a soft yet flaky scone with classic Fall flavours.
