Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Vanilla cupcakes

    • alexthepink on October 26, 2018

      Batter seems runny and grainy, but the cupcakes are delicious.

    • Melanie on May 24, 2014

      Light and fluffy. I paired this cupcake with a rosewater icing and chopped pistachios.

  • Pumpkin pie

    • rbarathan on August 07, 2011

      check portions - recipe makes enough for two pies

    • pomona on September 22, 2019

      Made the filling with a butternut pumpkin and baked it in ramekins without pastry. Too sweet but otherwise tasty. Didn't have the custard texture of other, eggier pumpkin pie filling I have made. Baked the pumpkin in wedges, skin on for 40 mins at 200. Drained them in a colander while cooling to get it to a more tinned consistency.

  • Chocolate cupcakes

    • Melanie on May 24, 2014

      Lovely texture and flavour. I paired these with the chocolate frosting recipe.

    • tootkingkitchen on March 11, 2021

      My go to cupcake recipe. Nice and light with flat tops for easy icing

  • Vanilla frosting

    • Melanie on May 24, 2014

      Easy and tasty.

  • Chocolate frosting

    • Melanie on May 24, 2014

      Easy and tasty.

  • Peaches and cream cupcakes

    • Melanie on May 24, 2014

      I liked these cupcakes - adding fruit into the batter helped to keep the cupcakes moist. I made mini cupcakes - cooked for 12-15 min in a FF oven at 155C.

  • Hazelnut and chocolate cupcakes

    • sarahalley on December 31, 2011

      These came out pretty well, but weren't the best cupcakes I've ever made.

  • Key lime pie

    • pomona on October 05, 2018

      Made it for a work event where it was hoovered up. Quality of limes matters.

  • Blueberry pie

    • pomona on October 05, 2018

      Used the blueberry mix recipe and my own pastry. Very nice, not too sweet. Would be great warm with ice cream.

  • Banana loaf

    • pomona on September 22, 2019

      Cake rose flat - remarkable and never happens to me. It looked great but then sunk in the middle as it cooled. I was concerned it hadn't finished cooking but turns out there was an air pocket in the centre. Cake was baked through, great texture, great taste.

  • Traditional brownie

    • Apsie on May 04, 2020

      This is my go to brownie recipe, it is often requested by family and colleagues when baking is on the cards. It is simple to make, one pan, one tray, no mess, always works, and has so little flour in the recipe can easily be substituted to make it gluten free.

    • sarcastic84 on January 02, 2022

      Foolproof brownie recipe - made with the wrong sugar & butter & still came out ok. Perfect for making additions to as well. Use cheesecake from Paul Hollywood's weekend baker brownie recipe & add frozen raspberries.

  • Carrot cake

Publishers Text

Tarek Malouf opened the first Hummingbird Bakery in London's fashionable Notting Hill district in 2004. This cookbook allows you to step inside this unique bakery and bring its trademark butter cream swirls, sprinkles, and layer-cake slices into your own kitchen.

The Hummingbird's Cupcakes fly off the shelves faster than any other cake. Who can resist an adorable Vanilla Cupcake topped with candy-colored butter cream frosting and scattered with sprinkles? Take Cakes to the next level with some mouthwatering recipes. Red Velvet and Carrot are both favorites at the Bakery, and the Hummingbird Cake is a sweet, sticky triumph of banana and pineapple.

Open Pies, pies with tops on, delicate pies and no-holds-barred pies: There's no shortage of options. Try Lemon Meringue with its mountain of golden fluffy meringue atop a rich, tangy lemon cream. You'll find favorite Pecan Pie here too. When you need a sweet fix, Brownies & Bars hit the spot. Rocky Road and Muesli Bars are always popular and make welcome additions to a packed lunch. There can't be much that beats a homemade Blueberry Muffin with your first cup of coffee in the morning. Finally, there's something childishly satisfying about a big, chewy Cookie studded with chocolate chunks--there's something here for every king of cookie fiend.
