Top 10 Recipes in Animal Crossing [2024]

Cooking is finally in Animal Crossing! Using fruits, fish, and crops that are now available in the game, we can now make scrumptious dishes and desserts that look absolutely amazing as decorations.

Want to make your kitchen a bit homier? Add some pie and cookies on the counter. Outdoor cafe looking a bit empty? You can now use drinks as decor!

Eating foods will give you the strength to shovel up trees or break rocks, but using them as decorations is where it’s at.

We’ve come up with what we think are the top 10 recipes in Animal Crossing.

These recipes are not that difficult to obtain and can be used in a lot of design ideas. Let’s get cooking!

10. Bread

Animal Crossing Bread Recipe

There’s nothing like freshly-baked bread straight from the oven! In Animal Crossing, the bread you create will already be in a cute basket, with a loaf, croissants, and baguettes in it.

A bread basket will look great on a kitchen counter or breakfast table!

You will need three flour bags to cook this, which can be made with five wheat per bag.

The recipe for this can be obtained from any cooking villager or from your Happy Home Paradise restaurant.

09. Any Fruit Jam (Apple Jam, Cherry Jam, Peach Jam, Pear Jam, and Orange Marmalade)

Animal Crossing Cherry Jam Recipe

Got a lot of excess fruits? Turn them into jam! This is one of the easiest recipes you can do to use up your extra fruits.

There is also one jam recipe for each main fruit, and you’ll most likely get the recipe for your native fruit first, so you don’t have to worry if you don’t have all the fruit trees yet.

To make jam, you will need three of a certain fruit.

For Apple Jam, you will need three apples. Cherry Jam requires three cherries. Three peaches are needed for Peach Jam. Pear Jam?

You bet you’ll need three pears. And lastly, three oranges are necessary for Orange Marmalade.

The jams are in cute jars with checkered lids, so they look great as decor, especially in country-style or ranch-themed Animal Crossing kitchens.

08. Fruit Salad

Animal Crossing Fruit Salad Recipe

This is the recipe to make when you have all the fruits in the game. Gotta flex that achievement with Fruit Salad!

You can get this recipe from any of your villagers or talk to the chef at your Happy Home Paradise restaurant.

You will need one of each main fruit to make this.

07. Turnip Salad

Animal Crossing Turnip Salad Recipe

Turnips aren’t just for selling and earning Bells now – you can now cook with them!

This recipe gets the seventh spot in our list because of the novelty of turnips and the special method of acquiring them.

She will mail you something as thanks for your turnip patronage. She might mail you Bamboo Shoots or a recipe the next day.

You will need one stack of turnips and one tomato to make this recipe.

06. Coconut Milk
