Zingerman's Classics

brownies and cake recipes by antonis achilleos

this class is being offered virtually. 

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 our hummingbird cake recipe, 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 fixings to go with your bread and end the class with iconic Zingerman’s treats: a sandwich, pickle, 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.

What's different when you take this class virtually:

Please note that this class will take place over two days. On Day One, we will meet for 30 minutes to mix and discuss our rye sour. On Day Two, we will bake!
