Detroit Classics

Virtual Detroit Style Pizza class photo by Antonis Achilleos

Experience three classics from Detroit institutions that have been around since the 1920s and 1940s. Together in this hands-on class, we'll make 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 Long John Coffee Cake, with a butter, brown sugar, and walnut 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 classic recipes. 

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and the pizza, cookies, and coffee cake you made in class.

In-person: We'll end class with a tasting of what we made and you'll go home with some great coupons.

I never wanted to make pizza at home but now I definitely will. —Arielle J.

My Weigh Kitchen Scale


A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!

The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. The price includes ground shipping.
