BITDI’ve been to Savannah a few times over the years and loved it. But somehow I missed the Back in the Day Bakery, which is apparently quite the place. Lucky for us the folks that started that local hotspot have written a book: The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook by Griffith and Cheryl Day.

About The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook by Griffith and Cheryl Day: “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.”

In their book, the duo behind The Back in the Day Bakery not only share their own treats they share great stories and photos all served up with a pinch of Southern charm.

The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook by Griffith and Cheryl Day is available from Amazon and other fine book retailers.
