Cookbook Giveaway: The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook

By: Kirsten Vala

My reputation as a baker was on the line a few weeks ago at our office cupcake bake-off. As I was searching and scrambling for a recipe, the cute-as-a-button The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes from the Best Little Bakery in the South caught my eye. A few days later I baked pretty pink Strawberry Cupcakes from the cookbook for the competition – they didn’t win, but they were fantastic (if I do say so myself). In fact, all the recipes in The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook are fresh, homey takes on classics, and I can’t wait to bake more beautiful sweets from this cookbook.

Cheryl and Griffith Day, pictured on the cover, founded the Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah in 2002. They’re both self-taught bakers, with Cheryl baking the sweets and Griffith taking on breads and the bakery’s savory fare. The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook includes all their customers' favorites, including breakfast treats, quick breads, pies, puddings and cookies, all made with fresh, local ingredients and a good bit of Southern charm.
