** The malted barley flour is also known as diastatic malt powder.
In a bowl combine bread flour, whole wheat flour, unprocessed bran, dark brown sugar, oat bran, rolled oats, granola, malted barley flour and salt. In bread pan add water, molasses, and caramel coloring. Add flour mixture; top with yeast and select dark bread setting.

CHART HOUSE JUMBO LUMP CRAB CAKES
1/2 pound jumbo lump crabmeat
1/2 pound special crabmeat (also called regular, deluxe, flake or white)
5 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon parsley
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
4 ounces Japanese-style panko breadcrumbs
Remove the shells from the crabmeat, being careful not to break up the meat. Place in a stainless steel mixing bowl.
In another mixing bowl, mix together the egg, mayonnaise, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt and pepper. Mix in the breadcrumbs.
Pour the mayonnaise mixture over the crabmeat. Using a rubber spatula, fold this mixture into the crabmeat gently but thoroughly. Be careful not to break up the jumbo lumps. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Form the mixture into six crab cakes (4 oz. each). Gently shape the cakes, but do not overwork them. Place each one in a parchment-lined sheet pan. (These can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator until ready to cook.)
To broil, preheat the broiler and adjust the oven rack to the middle shelf. Place the cakes in a buttered, oven-proof dish. Broil on the middle shelf until brown on top. Gently turn the cakes over and continue cooking until brown on top and cooked through.

CHART HOUSE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE PIE
1 1/2 cup Oreo cookies broken into rough chunks; use the whole cookie, including the white cream filling
7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
***FOR MOUSSE FILLING ***
18 ounces semi-sweet chocolate bits
6 egg yolks
5 egg whites
2 cups heavy cream
To make the crust: Place cookie chunks in the bowl of a food processor and process until you have crumbs. Add the melted butter and process again until well mixed.
Spray a 9-inch spring-form pan with nonstick cooking spray. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom of the pan and about 2 inches up the sides.
Freeze to set while you prepare the mousse filling.
To make the filling: Place the chocolate bits in a heavy glass or ceramic bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir and microwave again until the chocolate has melted completely.
(If you prefer, you can place the chocolate in a bowl over a pot of water that is steaming - but not boiling - and let it melt, stirring occasionally.)
Stir the egg yolks into the melted chocolate.
Place the egg whites in a clean, dry mixing bowl. Beat, using a wire whisk, until soft peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mix, one third at a time.
Place the cream in the mixing bowl you used for the egg whites and, using the wire whisk, beat the cream until it is stiff and not at all grainy. Fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture.
Pour the mousse into the reserved crumb crust. Freeze again until firm and set, about three or four hours.
To cut portions cleanly, use a sharp knife. Dip the knife into hot water and dry it off before you make each slice.
