About Cheryl Day | Griffith Day

Cheryl Day and Griffith Day

Griffith and Cheryl Day founded Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah, GA, 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 kitchen when he was a child, and Cheryl was introduced to the pleasures of the oven by her mother and grandmother. The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook is their first book and was written to celebrate the bakery’s tenth anniversary. @cherylday @backinthedaybakery

Sugar-Dipped Fruit

Unlike painting your domicile, painting summer berries with simple syrup demands little precision and even less prep work.

Shortcut Pie Crust

Perhaps the easiest pie crust ever. Actually, we take that back. Definitely the easiest peasiest pie crust ever. No kneading. No rolling out. Really.
