The Hummingbird Bakery Review

My Hummingbird Bakery Experiences


I've been to all three branches of Hummingbird Bakery in London. All three are clean, enticing and stocked with the most delicious variety of cakes.

However my favourite branch has to be Hummingbird Bakery in Spitalfields London. The fact that it's across the road from Pizza Union is one major reason. I also like that this store has some outdoor seating. Hummingbird bakery in London Spitalfields isn't on a main road, or a super busy London street.

Hummingbird Bakery Cupcakes
Hummingbird Bakery Black Bottom Cupcake and Salted Caramel Cupcake
On visits to the Hummingbird Bakery, I've tried their
red velvet brownie. Red velvet cupcake, black bottom cupcake and salted caramel cupcake.

Yum. Yum. Yum. The black bottom cupcake at the Hummingbird Bakery is pure indulgence. Soft, and fluffy chocolate marbled sponge of mostly milk chocolate with a hint of white chocolate. Creamy milk and white chocolate flakes cover the black bottom cupcake and a delicious soft chocolate center hides within.

The Hummingbird Bakery black bottom cupcake is not too sweet and not too heavy. It's mouth wateringly chocolatey!

The Hummingbird Bakery salted caramel cupcake is pretty cool. Something I'd only purchase again if I fancy a change. There are a few annoying salt crystals lingering on top, however. The caramel and sponge of this cupcake is delicious.

The red velvet brownie is very moist. It's more cakey, than brownie in consistency. The Hummingbird bakery red velvet brownie is pretty decent but not mind blowing in my opinion.

The red velvet cupcake is most wanted. However, I prefer the Hummingbird Bakery black bottom cupcake. It's chocolatey enough for me, and that's a tall order to fulfill!

On another visit to the hummingbird bakery I was lucky enough to take home the last mini mississippi mud pie. It's not so mini, which is obviously a good thing. You could share it with someone - If you're feeling that generous!

A thick layer of dense mousse slash brownie chocolate sits beneath an even thicker layer of unsweetened whipped cream. The Hummingbird bakery mini mississippi mud pie is so delicious. It's not too sweet. The crust is unsweetened and has a nice crunch to it. Milk chocolate shavings top the mississippi mud pie off.

The "mud" can only be described as a delectable cross between chocolate mousse, tiramisu and a brownie.

As always at Spitalfields Hummingbird bakery, the service I received and my usual faves - black bottom cupcakes were top notch.

Whats Amazing? 

The service. The shop, the cakes and pies.
