Simmer Pro Starter for a single food blog or store

Simmer Pro is now available in a new subscription for just one license key. This purchase gives customers one copy our recipe plugin for WordPress including nutrition content in grams per serving of:

  • Protein
  • Sugar
  • Calories 

Serving size in ounces is also included. This macro nutrition data is added next to existing yield, total number of servings, preparation time, cook time, and total time fields. The number of nutrients included in each recipe will be growing to include all daily value nutrients for United States Federal labelling with Simmer Pro 2.0.

Nutrients are always manually filled and never calculated by an algorithm for maximum control by recipe authors.

Simmer Pro 2.0 Preview

An upcoming release, Simmer Pro 2.0 moves the Nutrition panel to a new separate metabox for easier editing, and adds nutrients in grams per serving of:

  • Carbohydrates
  • Fiber
  • Protein
  • Fat
  • Saturated Fat
  • Unsaturated Fat
  • Trans Fat
  • Cholesterol
  • Sodium (milligrams)

The new nutrition metabox will individually allow an option for a United States Federal percent daily value nutrition label based on a 2,000 Calories per day diet. This label will not be applied by default, and can be selected through a checkbox for each recipe.

As always, nutrition fields filled with 0 are not displayed. See the Simmer Pro demo and contact our team for questions or purchase Simmer Pro Personal to download this plugin.


Example pie

May 25, 2017

This vanilla cake can be made with any fresh fruit. Grab some strawberries when they're their sweetest, in June.

  • 20m
  • 1h
  • 1h 20m
  • 1 Pie


  • 2 tbsp. butter for inside pan
  • 1 c granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 lb strawberries

Whipped Cream

  • 1 tsp. powdered sugar
  • 1 c heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Butter the inside of a 10-inch pie pan, or deep 9" pie pan.
  2. Hull and halve strawberries.
  3. Whisk flour, baking powder and salt together in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, beat butter and 1 cup sugar until pale and fluffy with an electric mixer, about 3 minutes. Mix in egg, milk and vanilla until just combined. Add dry mixture gradually, mixing just until smooth.
  4. Pour into prepared pie plate. Arrange strawberries, cut side down, on top of batter, closely together in a single layer (feel free to overlap them). Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons sugar over berries.
  5. Bake cake for 10 minutes then reduce oven temperature to 325°F and bake cake until golden brown and a toothpick comes out free of wet batter from the center of the cake, about 50 minutes to 60 minutes. (Gooey strawberries on the tester are of course fine!) Let cool in pan on a rack. Cut into wedges. Optionally serve with lightly whipped cream.
