About The Yummy Yank

Welcome to The Yummy Yank, where our founder, Lisa Gair, an American expat in the UK since 1997, shares her passion for baking with the world. From humble beginnings in her home kitchen to a thriving business, she has been delighting taste buds across the UK with her delectable creations.

The name "The Yummy Yank" says it all—Lisa is a Yank serving up scrumptious desserts. But there's more to it than meets the eye. It's a heartfelt tribute to her father, fondly nicknamed Yummy, and his twin brother, known as Yankee. Their memory lives on in every sweet treat we bake, spreading joy just as they did.

The Yummy Yank journey wouldn't be complete without the support and inspiration from everyone from family and friends to esteemed chefs, who have shaped what The Yummy Yank is today. With their guidance, we have become a true embodiment of love and deliciousness.

Indulge in our range of classic bakes, including rich American-style brownies, bars, and traybakes in over 20 mouthwatering varieties. From loaf cakes to signature brownie combinations, there's something for every sweet tooth. Our products are available online, at food festivals, retail outlets and through private orders or catering, ensuring everyone can experience The Yummy Yank's irresistible delights.

At the core of our ethos is a commitment to supporting small businesses and local artisans, using regional ingredients whenever possible. While some ingredients may hail from the USA, we strive to celebrate and champion local flavorus, creating treats that are not only delicious but also rooted in community.

Experience the magic of The Yummy Yank and join us on a journey of sweetness and nostalgia.
