If you live in the Savannah area, and you don’t know about The Back in the Day Bakery…WHAT are you waiting for? The Back in the Day Bakery sits at 2403 Bull Street in beautiful Savannah, Georgia and it’s only the best place ever for all things sweet, savory, and delicious. They say “Slow down and taste the sweet life,” and it isn’t just a tag line. Owners Griff and Cheryl Day believe “good food should nourish your body and soul.” When you visit Back in the Day Bakery, you enter a neighborhood bakeshop where everything is hand made in small batches. They put a real emphasis on quality and local ingredients, and you can taste the love in every bite!
The Back in the Day Bakery is known locally as well as nationally for their decadent, down-home desserts and scrumptious rustic breads. Now, we know everyone can’t make it to Savannah, so what’s the next best thing? A cookbook of course! That’s right! The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook is coming! We are super excited to see the finished product. Some of the cookbook was written right here on Tybee Island at our Mermaid Cottages! The cookbook celebrates the bakery’s tenth anniversary, and it’s packed with all the baking knowledge Griff and Cheryl have to share, right along with loads of amazing recipes to tempt your taste buds.
Back in the Day’s famous Buttermilk Biscones are in there as well as 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 the list goes on! The full-color photographs will make your tummy rumble. There are even behind-the-scenes bakery shots that will give you a peek into the day-to-day workings of life at the bakery. This special cookbook celebrates family traditions, baking from scratch, and quality local ingredients. It’s basically a “down-home bake sale in a book!”
