I used strong coffee instead of water, and added the zest of one orange, using a microplane. After the layers cooled, I brushed them with kahlua.
It was frosted with an easy butter cream: butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, cocoa, pinch of salt, coffee. Garnished with long strips of orange zest. Served with Breyer's Natural Vanilla ice cream.
Upon our return, I drained the wheat berries, put them in the rice cooker with chicken stock, a bay leaf, a smashed garlic clove, and a splash of olive oil.
They cooked for a bit, maybe a little longer than brown rice, and I added some water along the way.
