Danish: The Breakfast of Vikings

a close-up of a fruit and cheese danish

Sail ashore and conquer the mysterious and rich world of Danish dough. In this hands-on class, we'll teach you the techniques for creating rich, butter-laminated (layering the dough with butter and folding it over) and yeasted Danish dough. You'll get plenty of hands-on practice in class mixing, kneading, laminating, hand-shaping, and proofing yeasted dough. Together, with our rich laminated dough, we'll create 18 hand-shaped Danish (almond-filled bear claws, pinwheels, and pockets filled with cream cheese or fruit). 

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and all the Danish you made in class.

In-Person: We'll end the class with a tasting and you'll leave with Danish dough to bake with at home later, as well as some great coupons. You may want to bring a cooler and ice pack to class with you for storing your bake-at-home sweet dough on the ride home if you are traveling more than an hour to attend.

Virtual (2-day): On Day One, we'll make the laminated dough and go over all your options for topping/filling your 18 Danish. On Day Two, we'll shape, proof, fill/top, and bake all your Danish.
