Magic of Maple

A maple sandwich cookie in front of a plate of maple bran muffins and a platter of maple pecan blondies and more maple sandwich cookies.

We have so many wonderful local agricultural products to bake with in Michigan. One of our all time favorites is our maple syrup. In this class we’ll teach you how to make Bakehouse maple bran muffins, maple leaf sandwich cookies, and maple pecan blondies. Then we'll demonstrate a maple syrup pie, which you're welcome to make along with us if you wish. You'll get hands-on practice rolling out cookie dough, piping your maple buttercream filling, and more. Three Cheers to Michigan!

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and everything you made in class: a dozen muffins, a batch of cookies, a pan of blondies, and, if you chose to make it with us, a maple sugar pie. 

* Please note, to make the maple buttercream for the maple leaf sandwich cookies, you'll need a stand mixer with a whip attachment or a hand held mixer.

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.
