We'll be using the power of bacon to flavor three amazing baked goods, all in honor of Zingerman's Guide to Better Bacon book (available at all Zingerman's locations). You'll make a similar version of our wildly popular peppered bacon farm bread, bacon cheddar scones found in the book, and sweet and salty bacon pecan sandy cookies. We'll take you to hog heaven with a demonstration of our maple glazed bacon apple doughnuts. Try and contain yourself.

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, two loaves of bread, a dozen scones, three dozen cookies and great coupons.

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.

After tasting all of these brownies you’ll leave feeling magical.
