Somodi Kalács, a cinnamon swirl bread, recipe in our virtual baking class

This class is being offered virtually. 

Join us for this virtual hands-on class to learn two of our Hungarian favorites that are so good they grace the pages of our cookbook, Zingerman's Bakehouse: Rigó Jancsi [pronounced, ree-GO yan-CHEE], a traditional Hungarian coffeehouse torte named after Rigó Jancsi (1858-1927), a famous Hungarian violinist who seduced and married Detroit native, Clara Ward, Princesse de Caraman-Chimay. It's two light layers of chocolate sponge cake filled with chocolate rum whipped cream and iced with apricot glaze and dark chocolate ganache. You'll also make our Somodi Kalács, a cinnamon swirl bread (pictured on the right). This class covers a variety of techniques—from glazing and marking your torte to folding and rolling the cinnamon swirl inside your yeasted dough.

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them and pronounce them at home, and everything you made in class: one 1/4-sheet cake and a loaf of bread.

* Please note that a standard mixer is required for this class.
