About this item

Fire up your oven with recipes from what Paula Deen calls one of the "must-eat-at-places" in Savannah

Nationally recognized and locally adored for its decadent homespun desserts and delicious rustic breads, Back in the Day Bakery is a Savannah landmark. As Paula Deen says in her foreword, Cheryl and Griff Day "bake decadent treats, but they also bake wonderful memories that stay with you forever".

To celebrate the bakery's tenth anniversary, this duo has written a book filled with customers' favorite recipes. It's packed with Cheryl and Griff's baking know-how plus recipes for their famous Buttermilk Biscones, Old-Fashioned Cupcakes, Chocolate Bread, Cinnamon Sticky Buns, S'more Pie, Almond Crunchies, Drunk Blondies, Pinkies Chocolate Lunch-Box Treats, Rustic Cheddar Pecan Rounds, and much more. Irresistible full-color photographs of food and behind-the-scenes bakery shots will give readers a glimpse into the sweet daily life at the bakeshop. Celebrating family traditions, scratch baking, and quality ingredients, The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook is like a down-home bake sale in a book.

I also had the chance to go to one of their baking classes where I tried an additional six recipes that were all delicious. You cannot go wrong with this book. It's is worth it's weight in gold and will be treasured for many years to come!!

Some of my favorite memories as a child and also with my own children, involve going to bakeries. It’s such a wonderful experience to look in the glass cases and see all the treats. I’ve enjoyed Mexican, Armenian and French bakeries, each with their own regional favorites. I haven’t had the chance to go to the Back in the Day bakery in Savannah, with its old fashioned Southern charm and delicacies, so I was thrilled to find The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook. A foreward by Paula Deen explains how special this bakery is and what a treat it is to visit. Since I don’t live close by, it was a real pleasure to leaf through it and enjoy seeing all the gorgeous foods and old timey memorabilia that make the The Back in the Day Bakery such a sought after destination. And then there’s the recipes! The nine chapters cover Breakfast, Breads, Cupcakes and Cakes, Pies, Pudding, Cookies, Candies, Savory and more. Each recipe has a fun description that tells about its connection with the bakery. Reading about Griff’s childhood memories picking berries at his family’s cabin brought me back, too, and made the Blackberry Cobbler extra compelling. Lots of Southern classics like ‘Nana Cream and Sweet Potato Pies are included, as well other yummy treats, like Chewy Granola Bars or Vegetable Pot Pie. Of course, I immediately had to try out a recipe and I decided on the Peach Cobbler Muffins, they sounded so good! The turbinado sugar on the top did remind me of crunchy, sweet cobblers and the almond extract made them smell and taste heavenly. The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook is an ideal example of how food is so much more than just good eating, it is most definitely memories, too!

Good Read

Customer review by HotLady2010

4.0 stars by HotLady2010

Very easy read. Recipes are mostly simple, a few are drawn out. The Retro design is good. I have not made anything yet, but plan to make the Chocolate Heaven cake for Mothers Day & the Ham & Cheese Puffs real soon. I liked too because they are in Savannah, GA & started small in a struggling community.
