From Spoon: My bakery fantasy (see our post on Kittery, Maine’s Beach Pea Baking Co. here) continues with a recent column for The Record featuring the “Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook” by the adorable Cheryl and Griffith Day.
I have – sadly – never been to Savannah, but if I were to find myself in that storied city tomorrow, my first stop would be the Day’s quirky bakery, housed in a former general store and decorated with vintage kitsch, including Cheryl’s collection of Easy-Bake ovens. Where Beach Pea is pure southern Maine, Back in the Day Bakery is pure southern – serving up treats like Buttermilk Biscones, ‘Nana Puddin’ and Creole Brownies. Of course it was hard to choose just one, but the winner was this aptly named Lovely Lemon Loaf – the lemony-est lemon cake of all time (and from a gal who loves her lemon desserts, that’s saying a lot). The column and recipe are here.
