Flourless chocolate torte and mostly wheat bread

Posted Apr 23 2012 12:41pm
I'm going to keep things short today. I have a pile of work in front of me, since I took the weekend off for my birthday. I turned 28 yesterday. I had an awesome brunch with friends, followed by a trip to the museum , and a nap (I never take naps!). All-in-all a great, low-key weekend.
My husband surprised me with his flourless chocolate torte. He first made this for me years ago and it's kind of his signature dessert now. Eggs. Chocolate. Butter. A sprinkle of pistachios. That's it.
We baked bread for this week's Food Matters Project. Check out the full recipes  for homemade baguettes and whole wheat bread hosted by Melissa . See what others made here .
I decided to make the whole wheat loaf on Saturday. I mixed up the dough, put it in the windowsill, and ran errands. It was fairly warm here, so my dough was ready in less time. I subbed one cup of whole wheat flour for half a cup of oat flour and half a cup of brown rice flour. I added a teaspoon of dried oregano to the dough and covered the top with sesame and flaxseeds.

We thought the bread turned out pretty good. I'm glad I mixed in some lighter flours, so it wasn't as dense as some wheat breads can be. We ate it with a smear of arugula pesto and goat cheese, these roasted carrots, herbed omelets, and braised chard for dinner on Saturday. Hope you all had a great weekend.
