Zingerman's Baking and Cooking Classes

BAKE! is Zingerman's hands-on teaching bakery in Ann Arbor, MI, tucked between Zingerman's Bakehouse and Zingerman's Creamery.

We offer dozens of different bread, pastry and cake hands-on baking classes and sometimes cooking classes in our teaching kitchens. All of us at Zingerman's Bakehouse know the joy and excitement of baking something really good and sharing it with friends when it's hot out of the oven. You'll leave our baking and cooking classes with that same joy, the food you made in class and the inspiration and skills to bake at home!

Wholey Whole Grain Breads

1:30 pm
To
5:30 pm

We all know that whole grains can be good for us, but that’s not the only reason to eat them. With the right recipes and techniques they can taste great too. We’ll teach you to make Bakehouse Country Wheat bread, a whole-grain raisin bread, and a masterful multi-grain bread. This class will change how you think of whole grain bread. 

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

Cream Pies

8:00 am
To
12:00 pm

Do you love custards and puddings?  Love buttery pie crusts?  Eat whipped cream by the spoonful?  Yes! Yes! and Yes! Then this class is for you.

Join us to make two of our Bakehouse best: chocolate cream pie and coconut cream pie. We’ll also demonstrate our popular key lime pie. Since it’s baked it’s not really a “cream” pie but it’s definitely creamy and delicious.

In this class, you'll learn how to make a buttery and flaky pie crust from scratch (no shortening allowed!), how to roll and bake the crust, and how to make the chocolate cream pie filling and coconut cream pie filling from scratch. For the key lime pie demonstration, we'll show you how to make a buttery graham cracker crust, and the rich, tart filling. We'll also demonstrate fresh whipped cream to top the pies.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, one 10" chocolate cream pie and one 10" coconut cream pie and great coupons.

Zingerman's Classics

5:30 pm
To
9:30 pm

We created this class years ago to celebrate Zingerman's Delicatessen's anniversary (they opened way back in 1982!). Learn to make our Jewish rye bread and black magic brownies, old time favorites; and hummingbird cake, a new favorite with pineapple, pecan, coconut, banana and cream cheese frosting. Find out what a rye sour is and the secrets behind our rye bread's flavor. We’ll serve our deli meats and sandwich fixins' to go with your bread and end the class with iconic Zingerman’s treats: a sandwich, a pickle, a brownie and a toast to many years of great customers.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, a satisfied tummy, great coupons, and everything you made in class: a loaf of rye bread, rye sour, hummingbird cake, and black magic brownies.
