The number one bestseller (more than 830,000 copies sold) now updated with 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.

Now Tarek Malouf and The Hummingbird Bakers have created a new edition of the book, fine-tuning their classic recipes and introducing new bakes such as:

  • Mile-high Chocolate Salted Caramel Cake

  • Sticky Fig and Pistachio Cupcakes

  • Hot Cross Bun Cupcakes

  • Chocolate Cola Cake


The UK home of the American cupcake, branches of The Hummingbird Bakery in London have become something of an institution. If you haven't had chance to sample their delights, or even if you have, you can now make your own with this book. Top tip: the red velvet cake = instant happiness.
