Experience three classics from Detroit institutions that have been around since the 1920s and 1940s. Our own principal Dan was born and bred in the "D" and these foods are a beloved part of his memories there. Together we'll bake Detroit style deep dish pizza with caramelized cheese edges baked in a blue steel pan, spiced almond cookies in the traditional windmill shape and a family favorite long john coffeecake with butterscotch, walnuts and streusel. Get a little piece of history and a big bite of flavor, along with plenty of hands-on practice and tips for mastering these new recipes. 

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, one pizza, one coffeecake, baked cookies and cookie dough to make cookies at home and great coupons.

Learn the secrets to traditional German-style soft pretzels made with lard and dipped in lye. We will teach you how to form the crossed pretzel shape and tell you the story of why a monk decided to have this food be “in prayer.” You'll also shape the stick or baguette we make at the Bakehouse. These simple but tasty rolls are sure to become a family favorite. We'll also answer the “burning” question, “Are these dipped in the same lye used to make soap?” We'll end class tasting some warm pretzels with a little mustard and Zingerman's Creamery pimento cheese.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipe, the knowledge to recreate it at home, a dozen pretzels you made in class and great coupons.

*This class was formerly known as "Bavarian Baguettes: a.k.a. German Pretzels"

Brownies are easy even without a box mix, but you really can taste the difference when you make them with great ingredients. We’ll make four different varieties including our very own magic brownie with toasted walnuts (called one of the top 20 recipes of all time by Midwest Living Magazine), a fudgy brownie, buenos aires brownies with dulce de leche caramel and pecan blondies. After tasting all of these brownies you’ll leave feeling magical.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes,  the knowledge to recreate them at home, four pans of brownies you made in class and great coupons.

One of our most popular classes! Your family and house guests won't soon forget waking up to the aroma of butter, cinnamon, and muscovado brown sugar permeating the house from the fresh baked sweet rolls. Join us and find out how it's done. Learn the basic techniques of creating a sweet dough including mixing, kneading and rolling, hand-shaping your rolls, and properly proofing them. We'll also demonstrate how to make pecan sticky buns, a staff favorite. Wait until you taste these warm from the oven in class!

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, dough to bake at home later, a half dozen big cinnamon rolls and a cinnamon roll wreath you made in class, plus great coupons.

Join us to learn two Hungarian all time favorites Rigó Jancsi and Somodi Kálacs. Rigó, as we call it, is a chocolate sponge cake filled with chocolate rum cream and iced with chocolate ganache. It’s named after a famous handsome and charming Hungarian violinist! Somodi Kálacs is a Transylvanian yeasted sweet bread and the biggest bread hit we’ve had at the bakery in years. It’s a sweet buttery rich bread brushed with butter and cinnamon sugar. It’s irresistible. This class covers a variety of techniques too- from glazing your torte to rolling and folding the cinnamon swirl inside your loaf.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them and pronounce them at home, one 1/4 sheet cake, and one loaf of bread, and great coupons.
