Hunka Burnin' Love Cake

This class is being offered virtually. 

The first version of our Hunka Burnin’ Love cake was created in the late ’80s at Zingerman’s Delicatessen. Then, as today, the Deli version is a whopping 7-pound cake! It’s a four-layer, 9-inch round cake that can easily satisfy 30 people. (The Deli serves big pieces though, so each cake is cut into 16 slices for individual sale.) The cake itself is a fudgy, dense, chocolate butter cake filled and iced with lusciously smooth dark chocolate buttercream. 

In this class, we’ll teach you how to create a more modest-sized Hunka Burnin’ Love cake* that is great for birthdays or just everyday enjoyment. 

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and the 8-inch, 2-layer Hunka Burnin' Love cake you made in class.

*Please note, to make the Hunka Burnin' Love cake, you’ll need a stand mixer with paddle and whisk attachments.

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.
