Austrian Bakery Again
Three layers of chocolate cake with a chocolate filling, a chocolate-flavored whipped cream and a chocolate ganache topping. It was good, but not as good as the white chocolate raspberry torte from Wednesday. The non-pariel covered truffle was good. I ate that last.
I should mention this excursion was last Friday, March 11. I figured I'd have the cookies for raiding over the weekend. They were incredibly good and oh, so rich. I ate about 10 of them on Friday night and could not eat any more. There's a good 2 dozen of these in the box. I finished the last of them Monday after work. Oh my. I am very glad this bakery isn't within my easy driving distance.
And it made me sad that this bakery isn't within easy driving distance. Maybe it's not true, but I think this is healthier than the stuff I buy off the shelf at Dominicks. No way can I stuff a piece of ham and a slice of cheese between two pieces of this but I wasn't eating it in a sandwich. I warmed it with a little butter and jam and that was phenomenal. It would probably cost $10 if I found it in the mainstream grocery. In this little bakery on Clark Street, it was $4.95. I finished the loaf Tuesday evening and now am thinking I need to give Jon $5 when he heads down there again with orders to bring back a loaf of something.
Bread. The staff of life.
