Giveaway - The Hummingbird Bakery Life is Sweet

Life is Sweet Cookbook

You can't help but fall in love with a cookery book which has 100 original recipes for happy home baking. This book is the fourth cookbook written by Tarek Malouf, famous for opening The Hummingbird Bakery in London back in 2004.

Most of us are familiar with the American cupcake and red velvet cake but there is so much more to tempt us. This book has an amazing array of authentic American baked goodies, including cakes, cupcakes, bars, cookies, pies, bread pudding, ice cream and pancakes. The recipes are for the novice through to the adventurous baker.  There are some show stoppers including a red velvet crepe cake, layer cakes to wow all of us and what I predict is going to be one of the most popular bakes from this book......Red Velvet Brownies!

I made Ozark Pudding cake, which apparently gets it's name from the Ozark Mountains in Missouri and Arkansas, this is one of those baked-in-a-skillet cakes and was supposedly a favourite of President Harry S. Turner.  The pudding is on the delicious side of gooey, the edges are crisp, chewy and fabulous. The pudding is best served warm accompanied with a dollop of ice cream, well that's my recommendation!  If you've got a couple of eating apples going spare and a few store cupboard ingredients then this pudding can be made in next to no time at all.

I made my pudding in an ovenproof frying pan - and it turned out fine
