Zingerman's Baking and Cooking Classes in Ann Arbor

***UPDATE***

Although we all love to come together for classes, in order to minimize the spread of the virus, all in-person BAKE! classes are canceled until at least August 1st.

Online classes are up and running though! Just look for classes that start with the word "virtual," like Virtual Boston Cream Pie, Virtual Cake Making, and Virtual Amber Waves of Grain.

The easiest and fastest way for you to make changes to your registrations is for you to sign into your account here at bakewithzing.com. As always, if you’d rather give us a ring, we’re happy to assist you with cancelations or class credits over the phone at 734-761-7255.

We look forward to seeing you again in class soon!


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!

Our classes (except for family classes & kids camps) are designed for adults 17 & up.

Virtual Wholey Whole Grain Breads

12:00 pm
To
5:00 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. 

In this online, interactive class via Zoom, 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.

We can’t wait to (virtually!) bake with you! With your registration, you will receive the student guide, a grocery and equipment list, and any associated information for the class. You will also receive a link to the Google Meet invite. This is your invitation into the class! Consider adding it to your Calendar.

We encourage you to look through the recipes at this time and the list of ingredients and equipment you will need to have handy in order to plan your trip to the store and have your class run smoothly. 

Day of Class

  • We ask that you have your ingredients out and ready to scale before class. We can all scale together, just make sure to have ingredients accessible. 

  • Please have a look at the equipment list to make sure you’ve got everything handy. 

  • While not required by BAKE! Law, we highly, highly, highly recommend that you use a scale to ensure the best results and accuracy when baking. 

  • On the day of your class, gather your ingredients, and make yourself comfortable. Expect to see your instructor ready to invite you in 5-10 minutes before class starts. We will do (with some tweaking!) carry on our class as we do our in-person public classes...but this time, you’ll bring your own apron! 

General Thoughts

We understand and expect that we will all work at different speeds, and ask that you be courteous of this in our classes. We have limited our class size to 12 (households, that is, we know there may be more than one of you participating in each home) to ensure that everyone gets the attention and help that they need. 

Since this is a new format for us, we’re learning as we go along! Any feedback or suggestions you have can be sent to [email protected]

Virtual Dinner Series British Isles

12:00 pm
To
4:00 pm

In this online, interactive class via Zoom, you won’t need to hop across the pond to enjoy a traditional British meal—it will all come together in your kitchen! Our Guinness Beef Stew is so rich and flavorful that Amy says, “I’ve since stopped up making my family’s stew recipe.”  Beware this might happen to you, too! To sop up the stewy sauce we’ll make soft and tasty Baps—a dreamy little dinner roll. Need a little something for dessert? Let’s make classic shortbread cookies.

We can’t wait to (virtually!) bake with you! With your registration, you will receive the student guide, a grocery and equipment list, and any associated information for the class.

Virtual Cosmic Cakes

2:00 pm
To
6:00 pm

The Bakehouse retired these beloved treats, but now, in this online, interactive class via Zoom, you can recreate them at home. Cosmic Cakes are our version of whoopie pies—we’ll start with thin layers of our classic buttermilk chocolate cake, sandwich them around fresh Swiss buttercream filling, and then coat them in a rich, dark chocolate. We’ll give you the recipe for four different filling flavors in all—vanilla, chocolate mint, peanut butter, and banana—you can choose which ones you fill your Cosmic Cakes with.

We can’t wait to (virtually!) bake with you! With your registration, you will receive the student guide, a grocery and equipment list, and any associated information for the class.
