I wish I was going to tell you the story of the chocolate hazelnut mousse with the dark chocolate glaze on the chocolate hazelnut shortbread, but I'm not. Instead tonight's story is about what we do for the people we love.

Occasion: Stinky Came Down To See Me In The Middle Of The Night
Name of Cake: For The Love of Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
Constituents: Chocolate Bread made with WWPF and milled cane sugar
I think my WWPF is rancid.
Anyway. Decided to make a cake for Stinky as a way to say thank you for deciding at 4 pm to drive down after work and spend the night. The cake was finished by 2 am. He got here around 4 am.
Milled cane sugar. If I’m really going to use it; I need to process it for a few minutes in the food processor because the grains are too large; they don’t dissolve after mixing up the batter. Damn. Lazy and more appliances to wash vs better taste and health. That’s a hard one.
WWPF. Would have been better if it wasn’t rancid. The taste of the old oils in the bran totally overpower the cake. Damn.
Dense cake. Not too bad. Just needs fresher flour.
PS: According to Michel Odent, love, health, and sexuality are all a function of the same biological functions, namely your immune system and your endocrine system. These two systems are so intricately linked, he says, that you can't separate them out in terms of importance on love, health, and sexuality, which he also says are so intricately linked you really can't separate them out, either.)
