German Breads

dinkelbrot bread by Antonis Achilleos

this class is being offered virtually and in-person.

While working with Eli and Tino of Dresdner Backhaus, a famous bakery in Dresden, Germany, we exchanged recipes and experience freely. Join us for this hands-on class* as we make three of the breads our German friends taught us: the Bakehouse's Dinkelbrot, a spelt, rye, and sunflower seed loaf; Wurzelbrot, a rye and wheat baguette; and Vinschgauer, a savory, seasoned mountain roll that's delicious with ham and cheese. You'll get plenty of hands-on practice mixing, shaping, and proofing a variety of yeasted bread doughs, and then bake them to perfection.

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

We'll end the in-person class with a German bread tasting and you'll go home with some great coupons.

* Please note, the virtual class takes place over two consecutive days. On Day One, we'll meet to mix our rye sour, make our soakers, and mix our poolish, before letting them sit overnight. On Day Two, we'll be mixing, shaping, proofing, and baking our German Breads. To make the Wurzelbrot, you'll need a stand mixer with a hook attachment. 


* The in-person class takes place over one day for 4.5 hours.


What our guests have to say about this class:

Very thorough presentation. One of the best BAKE! classes I've taken. Taking home rye starter is a big plus! —Helen P.

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.

Barley Malt Syrup


Barley Malt Syrup is a mellow sweetener, a tasty food source for yeast, and an ingredient that we use in our virtual Soft Pretzel, Better Bagel, and German Bread classes at Bake. We will ship you 14 ounces, which is more than enough for all your baking needs. Shipping is included in the price.
