About the Author

Griffith Day and his wife, Cheryl, founded Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah, Georgia, in 2002. They're both self-taught bakers; Griff's interest in baking was piqued by the magical sourdough starter that his mother kept in the family kitchen when he was a child. He is the master behind the flavorful breads and the creative savory menu at the bakery, and his pioneering spirit complement's Cheryl's enthusiasm to create Back in the Day's unique atmosphere. Together they comprise a sweet and savory tour de force!


Cheryl and Griffith Day founded Back in the Day Bakery, in Savannah, Georgia, in 2002. Their first book, The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook, was a New York Times bestseller. Cheryl’s enthusiasm for enriching lives through the time-honored art of scratch baking is one of her most endearing qualities, along with a few dance moves she picked up in her days as a Soul Train dancer. Griff adds his pioneering spirit to the mix and is the master behind their flavorful breads and creative savory menu. Together they comprise a sweet and savory tour de force!

Cheryl and Griffith Day are the authors of the New York Times bestselling Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook and Back in the Day Bakery Made with Love.

I've completed so many recipes from this book and they're all fantastic. The Mexican Hot Chocolate Shortbread cookies are perfect with just the right amount of kick. The Cinnamon-Sugar Donut Muffins are to die for! My whole family loved the Chicken Pot Pie Cobbler - my 9 year old son had two helpings which never happens. Oh, how could I foget the Bourbon Peacon Pie!!! My husband says it's the best peacn pie he has ever had. It's my new "go-to" book.

A fantastic book! Everything I've made so far has been a huge hit. A word of advice: they measure butter the european way, not north amaerican as I first assumed. Because of that, my first few attempts at recipes in the book were alright, but not what I thought they'd look like. Now I know better!
Just in case you don't want to take the time to search, when the recipe calls for "8 Tbsps (1 stick)" that's equal to 1/2 a cup of butter. When it calls for "1/2 a pound (2 sticks)" that's one cup. etc etc.
Worth every penny.

By Reader Writer Runner TOP 50 REVIEWER on April 30 2015
Format: Hardcover
According to their fans, Cheryl and Griffith Day epitomize southern hospitality; their bakery, located in Savannah, GA, has become a go-to place for comforting baked goods, vintage décor and old-fashioned allure. So, in honour of their 10th anniversary, the Days released "The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook" containing 100 favourite recipes organized into nine categories.

The book begins with a forward by celebrity chef Paula Deen, who loves the bakery so much that she rented it for her niece's bridal shower, and continues with chapters such as Breakfast, Cupcakes and Cakes, Cookies, Brownies and Bars and Savories. It also contains a useful section aimed at novice bakers covering everything from creaming butter to working with eggs. For visual appeal, the Days include appetite-inducing photos of baked goods on antique china.

Southern staples take centre stage ('Nana Cream Pie, Peach Cobbler Muffins, etc) but unexpected international fare like Guava Sweet-Cheese Turnovers and Bacon-Jam Empanadas broaden the book's repertoire. Most charmingly, the Days have injected the spirit of the bakery right into the cookbook; they interrupt recipes with tales about Savannah and anecdotes describing both the sweetness and the bitterness that accompany following your dreams.

I have had this book for about 6 months and have made many of the recipes in it. Every recipe I've tried has been delicious and easy to make. The directions are straight forward, the ingredients are listed in the order they are used and there are lots of photos to entice you try something. It's also nice that the ingredients are easy to find and are probably already in your cupboard/fridge. If you're looking for really tasty food, that people will devour and rave about, this is the book to get. This isn't the book to buy if you're looking for low fat, low calorie, dairy free, and/or health conscience recipes that will help you lose weight.

I stumbled on this book as I was looking for something else on Amazon and sort I impulsively bought it! I'm really glad I did because its a lovely book filled with good old fashioned baking recipes. The peach muffins were particularly delicious. I will say that for most of the recipes I tried, they tend to go just a bit heavy on the sugar, so I just reduce it a bit. Overall, a lovely book written in a lighthearted style.
