What's the most popular recipe in your state?

Shockingly, bread isn't the overall leader.

With dozens of stay-at-home orders still in effect across the United States due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, cooking and baking have long been a go-to activity for many. Americans have been filling their kitchens with the scent of homemade bread, cookies and more.

You've seen the banana bread and sourdough boules all over your Instagram feed, but have you ever wondered which one is more popular? Well, Google dug up the most searched recipes in each state over the month of April so you can find out.

In the same findings, Google found that banana bread is the most popular recipe worldwide since March 1. Not a huge shocker, considering how quickly bananas ripen.

But, perhaps surprisingly, bread was not the most popular recipe uniquely searched across the 50 states. That title was taken by the mighty hamburger.

While Arizona was the only state thirsty for lemonade, D.C. tagged along in the drinks department with margaritas.

Breakfast dishes remained popular in states stretching from Alaska to Vermont with cinnamon rolls and pancakes being the most searched, respectively.
