After doing the observation, I noticed that you seem to really love our family desserts recipes. Whether it’s a simple sheet cake or a slightly time consuming chocolate cake.
About 2 years ago, I posted my first simple video on my YouTube cooking channel and within the last year, I added several more. Even with those few videos, you all seem to love them. Therefore, there will be more videos coming in 2020 that I had been working on these past couple months.

#14 Homemade Dulce de Leche (Cooked Condensed Milk)
This is the only method we use for making homemade dulce de leche. It works like magic! The texture of dulce de leche comes out really thick. It’s perfect to use as filling for desserts such as oreshki cookies or peach cookies.
#13 Walnut Shaped Cookies with Dulce de Leche Filling (oreshki)
These are melt-in-your-mouth! Who would ever reject that dulce de leche filing? I recently uploaded another very similar recipe to this, Oreshki (Walnut Shaped Cookies) that you will love just as much.
#12 Ptichye Moloko (Birds’ Milk)
The light and fluffy combination of creamy white and cocoa mousse-like layers will put you through the roof. This super delicious dessert takes 30 minutes to make.

We all loves scones and there are thousand recipes of them online. Why these are a hit? These are creative and made into an unusual shape that makes them so eye-catching on the web.
#10 Ukrainian Old-Fashioned Honey Babka
This is the easiest honey dessert you will ever make. It’s the honey version of brownie. This cake is baked as a sheet cake and topped with delicious frosting.
#9 Honey Cake Roll
This cake roll became reader’s favorite since day one. It literally takes an hour to put together and turns out fluffy and light as an air every time.
#8 Honey Cake with Sour Cream Frosting
Readers love this cake so much because of how easy it is. Others love it for its extra fluffy layers and yummy sour cream frosting. It’s the easiest 3-layer honey cake on the web!
#7 Deruny (Ukrainian Potato Pancakes)
This dish works for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s so easy and takes less than 30 minutes to make unless you’re doubling or tripling the serving. We love to enjoy these with lots and lots of sour cream.
#6 Homemade Pumpkin Puree
Mom’s recipe of making pumpkin puree at home was a huge hit during fall months. This is how I have pumpkin puree all-year-long!
#5 Homemade Farmer’s Cheese (tvorog)
If you did not have a chance to make it, you’re missing out bunch! This is the easiest method of making homemade farmer’s cheese without waiting days for that cheese. Readers love that it’s not sour and does not have any extra aroma to it. Did you know its freezer-friendly?
#4 Chocolate Spartak Cake
I’m surprised this cake didn’t hit the #1 for 2019. This is the most loved chocolate cake recipe on the web. These thin, chocolate-y layers filled with sour cream frosting are to die for!
#3 Smoked Salmon Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches
These elegant appetizers are a must for gatherings. They are easy to put together and can be prepared few hours in advance. But seriously, who wouldn’t love that chunk of salmon, right?
#2 Macarons with Raspberry Filling
With 2 years in a row being the #2, this recipe is a keeper! I’m all for that raspberry filling!
#1 Cream Filled Pizzelles (trubochki)
The moment I updated photos of these pizzelles, it went viral. Even though some of you had issues with runny filling for these, it was always the favorite of all.
I’m not sure though why some readers get bad results with filling. I make this recipe A LOT and it always turns out. I’m leaning more towards that bakers are thawing cool whip because most recipes tell you to thaw cool whip before use.
I’m considering of switching the cream to dulce de leche and just leave the original filling in the notes section of the recipe. If you’d like that, leave a comment below.
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting super hungry here. It’s midnight!!!

Thank you Vika for your kind words. It means so much to me to hear my readers loving my blog so much 🙂 You’re making me cry from happiness 🙂
These are all recipes that are on regular routine in our house. We especially love the spartak cake and babka. As for recipe #1, dulce de leche sounds delicious but for me it always turns out anyway. Whatever you decide, I’m sure it will taste just as delicious! 🙂
