The Hummingbird Bakery is the destination bakery for Londoners with a passion for great cakes. In this irresistible book, the chefs from the bakery share their recipes for a delicious range of 60 bakes, from deliciously light cupcakes with pretty buttercream frosting to moist chocolate layer cakes and zesty lemon meringue pie. Hummingbird recipes not only taste great but also look spectacular - without resorting to fussy recipes and hours in the kitchen. The chapters include Cupcakes, Cakes (including loaf, layer, ring and cheesecakes), Pies, Brownies and Bars, Muffins and Cookies.
The Hummingbird's Cupcakes fly off the shelves faster than any other cake. Who can resist an adorable Vanilla Cupcake topped with candy-coloured buttercream frosting and sprinkled with hundreds and thousands? Take Cakes to the next level with some mouth-watering recipes. Red Velvet and Carrot are both favourites 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 favourite 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 the lunch box. There can't be much that beats a home-made 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 kind of cookie fiend. This cookbook allows you to step inside this unique bakery and bring its trademark buttercream swirls, sprinkles and layer-cake slices into your own kitchen.
Classic bakes are back in vogue and this book provides 60 simple recipes for everyone's favourites from Vanilla Cupcakes to Key Lime Pie.
