About this item


Book Synopsis

A decade-by-decade cookbook that highlights the best (and a few of the worst) baking recipes from the 20th century

Friends of baking, are you sick and tired of making the same recipes again and again? Then look no further than this baking blast from the past, as B. Dylan Hollis highlights the most unique tasty treats of yesteryear.

Travel back in time on a delicious decade-by-decade jaunt as Dylan shows you how to bake vintage forgotten greats. With a big pinch of fun and a full cup of humor, you'll be baking everything from Chocolate Potato Cake from the 1910s to Avocado Pie from the 1960s.

Dylan has baked hundreds of recipes from countless antique cookbooks and selected only the best for this bakebook, sharing the shining stars from each decade. And because some of the recipes Dylan shares on his wildly popular social media channels are spectacular failures, he's thrown in a few of the most disastrously strange recipes for you to try if you dare.

A few of Dylan's favorites that are going to have you licking your lips and begging for more include:
● 1900s Cornflake Macaroons
● 1910s ANZAC Biscuits
● 1930s Peanut Butter Bread
● 1940s Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake
● 1950s Tomato Soup Cake
● 1970s Potato Chip Cookies

Baking Yesteryear contains 101 expertly curated recipes that will take you on a delicious journey through the past. With a larger-than-life personality and comedic puns galore, baking with Dylan never gets old. We'll leave that to the recipes.

About the Author

B. Dylan Hollis is a social media personality who has tasked himself with baking and tasting unusual recipes from bygone years. Born and raised on the island of Bermuda, he later attended college at the University of Wyoming to further a career as a jazz pianist and arranger. He stumbled into both baking and social media fame at once in 2020, when quarantine boredom led him to film an investigation of an old cookbook he had collected from an estate sale. Hundreds of recipes later, Dylan now entertains millions across TikTok, YouTube, and Instagram with his unique style and fast jokes.

Just as enjoyable as his videos, this book brings recipes from the past to life with Dylan’s trademark whimsy. The book itself is gorgeous and the recipes are presented very well. I was hesitant to buy a book entirely about baking, but it was well worth it!

What's not to like? It's a collection of recipes from Yesteryear written with humor and helpful hints. Dylan brings his social media presence to print! Even if you don't bake you'll love this book.

I love the variety of recipes and the way they’re organized. The photos are beautiful and give you a great idea of what end results should look like. Nothing seems fussy and I even found a few recipes with treats I grew up with. While some of the recipes seeming a little unconventional, I do appreciate the paragraph talking about his experience and thoughts while making the dish. One of them definitely acknowledged that while yes, this seems crazy, it did indeed turn out well. I’m more likely to try some of the recipes after reading the authors notes.
