Truly this is the first book I have ever owned that I feel I could bake everything from. Everything! There is so much love in this book and the recipes are ones that you will treasure. There is nothing really fancy about it, they don't try and reinvent the wheel, these are just incredible good old fashioned American desserts that have stood the test of time and will hopefully continue to inspire new generations to get back to scratch baking rather than buying manufactured baked goods that are filled with artificial ingredients and certainly made with no love. Do yourself a favor and get this book!!! It's written for anyone, whether you bake all the time or haven't ever made anything from scratch. This is certainly one that will never sit on a dusty shelf!
Update June 2014 - I've now made 30+ recipes from this book and it remains my very favorite baking book! They've all been great recipes! Many I have made several times over.
I've tried several recipes so far and every one has turned out beautifully. The recipes are very easy to follow, ingredients are "every day" items you probably already have in your pantry. All I had to purchase was mace, whole nutmegs, and cardamom. But it's well worth it because these are used in several recipes in this book. I've made the sweet potato pie twice and my family absolutely loves it. I'd never even eaten a sweet potato pie before, so I had no idea what it would taste like. Wonderful! So easy to bake. Their homemade jam recipe is so easy and instructions are thorough and detailed. I made it using strawberries, both fresh and frozen. Turned out great both times. So much better than store bought. I've made the Southern Corn Cakes, Baked Vanilla Custard, Bourbon Pecan Pie (to die for!), Bourbon Bread Pudding (my Mom's favorite), and Blueberry Biscones with Lemon Glaze. Their special recipe for shortcut piecrust is amazing - buttery, flaky and so very easy to prepare. My next treat will be the lemon bars. Can't wait!
Everything I've baked so far was perfectly yummy! I never considered myself a baker, but with successes like these, I've come to love baking and making treats my family enjoys.
Aside from the recipes that I've tried, what really caught my eye with this book was the interesting take on cookies, savory foods, and bars. We've all heard of Mexican chocolate, but Back in the Day Bakery has developed a cookie made with almond and all-purpose flour as well as chocolate and cayenne pepper for kick, which is one recipe I cannot wait to try. They also include a recipe for Bennecake Thumbprint cookies, which uses Benne flour, local to the Low Country of South Carolina/Georgia. If that doesn't pique your interest, then the Lemon Pie Bars, Drunk Blondies, Almond Crunchies, and homemade Sno Balls might catch your eye. Still not convinced? Savory foods such as Pancetta-Fontina Bread Pudding and Vegetable Potpie are also included!
The biggest complaint for cookbooks are those that don't include enough photographs. Back in the Day Bakery has a photograph on nearly every page, and you can clearly see what the end result should look like. Every recipe is incredibly easy to read and follow- just ask my 7 year old, who helped make the Espresso cake and Bundt cake. I can't say enough good things about this cookbook, and I am so glad that I purchased it. Highly recommended.
Every time I need to bake something special, I turn to this book because I *know* it'll be fantastic. It's absolutely packed with fabulous recipes, and I find that the amount of story and commentary woven into the book is perfect: not too much or too little. Plus, the design of the book is gorgeous, and if you've ever been to the bakery, you know that the aesthetic of the book and the photography takes you right back there. I remember seeing Cheryl sitting at a booth in the bakery and working on this book during several of my last visits there and eagerly anticipating its release, and I'm so glad it's completely exceeded my expectations. I still miss Back in the Day for the friendly owners, staff, and atmosphere, but at least now I can replicate their incredible sweets and savories anytime I want.
