The number one bestseller (more than 830,000 copies sold) now revised and updated with extra new recipes.
From their first shop in Notting Hill's Portobello Road, The Hummingbird Bakery introduced London to the delights of American-style baking. The simple yet spectacular recipes for indulgent cupcakes, muffins, pies, cheesecakes, brownies, cakes and cookies, in this, their first and bestselling cookbook, ensured that the home cook could create some Hummingbird magic in their own kitchens too, wherever they lived. Now Tarek Malouf and the Hummingbird bakers have created a new edition of the book, fine-tuning their classic recipes and introducing eight new bakes.
With new recipes such as Sticky Fig and Pistachio Cupcakes, Hot Cross Bun Cupcakes, Mile-high Chocolate Salted Caramel Cake and Chocolate Cola Cake, this is the must-have book for cake lovers everywhere.
