Experience authentic American baking as you’ve never tasted it before! The fourth recipe collection from Britain’s favourite bakery gathers together all the irresistible delights that make classic American home baking so mouth-watering. 

Whether it’s whipping up a batch of fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes over a hot griddle, going back to old fashioned baking values with a waste-not-want-not Shaker Lemon Pie, or pouring glossy chocolate glaze over the impressive Tunnel of Fudge Cake, this new collection contains 100 irresistible new recipes you’ll want to try. 

Each recipe comes with easy step-by-step instructions, beautiful photography and hints and tips for perfecting your bakes. Find out where recipes originated from and discover the secrets of American pantries with handfuls of pecans, golden pumpkin and more than just a splash of bourbon along the way!

No matter whether you’re familiar with The Hummingbird Bakery’s bestselling cookbook collections or whether this is your first foray into baking, there’s something sweet for everyone. Novice bakers can excel with simple treats such as home baked Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Cookies or more experienced hands can progress to Doberge cakes or the impressive sky-high Alabama Little Layer Cake. And for those looking for a chilled dessert, you’ll be scooping up Red Velvet Ice Cream and slicing into the sumptuous layers of Gingerbread Icebox Cake in no time.
