this class is being offered virtually.
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 two-day 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.
On Day One, we'll meet for 1.5 hours to mix our rye sour, make our soakers, and mix our poolish before letting them sit overnight. We'll also answer any questions you may have. On Day Two, we'll be mixing, shaping, proofing, and baking our German Breads.
* Please note, to make the Wurzelbrot, you'll need a stand mixer with a hook attachment.
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.
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 1# which is more than enough for all your baking needs. Shipping is included in the cost.
Basic Bread Baking Kit
Our Basic Bread Baking Kit is great for bakers who are just starting to experiment with bread baking. It comes with 5 tools that will help you get started on your bread baking adventure: a bowl scraper, a bench knife, a lame with three razor blades (for scoring bread), an oven thermometer, and a digital thermometer. The price includes ground shipping. For more in-depth equipment descriptions please go to our FAQ page or send an email to [email protected].
Everything Bread Baking Kit
Our Everything Bread Baking Kit is great for more experienced bread bakers, or those looking to expand their world of breads. It contains all of the equipment from the Basic Bread Baking Kit (bowl scraper, bench knife, lame with three razor blades, oven thermometer, and digital thermometer), plus a willow proofing basket, a linen couche for making baguettes, cheesecloth, and ten sheets of parchment paper. The price includes ground shipping. For more in-depth equipment descriptions please go to our FAQ page or send us an email at [email protected].
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. Shipping is included in the price.
