Go ahead and make it with the wholewheat. Yes, it will be a little different, but I find that even people who dislike wholewheat, don't dislike it in desserts.

I thought "bain-Marie" was double boiler - over boiling water, not in it.

This is what I think of as a bain marie, where you put the water in and then bake in the oven:



But it also shows this (where it's done on the stove top and the top pan actually touches the water in the bottom one):

.

So it looks like everyone is correct!
