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.

My mom loves this book and honestly the recipes are fun and easy to make


Great book, col concept with laying it flat. However printing is not as shown. Even the cover art is cut off. Several flaws on pages and the large heavy book was shipped in an in padded plastic envelope which my mai person crammed in the mailbox further damaging the book. There were also several printing. Errors that looked like heat burns. Their customer service is supposed to be sending me a new one. If it arrives in better condition I will change my review.
