Chestnut Chocolate Cake

I really like chestnuts and desserts with chestnut purée. Today I baked a chestnut chocolate cake I got from an old newspaper clipping (which paper is not discernible anymore).
You mix 200g chestnut purée, 300g flour, 200g sugar, 1 packet of vanilla sugar, 1/2 a packet of baking powder, 100g soft butter and 2 eggs.

Depending on the dryness of the purée you then have to add 1 – 1.5 dl milk and finally 200g chopped dark chocolate.

I poured the dough into a round cake tin (26 cm) and baked the cake at 180C for 35-40 minutes. Whilst waiting I licked the bowl very clean.

I don’t know yet whether the cake turned out fine. I will wait for my colleagues verdict tomorrow.


And now I’ll clean the kitchen…

Update: my boyfriend couldn’t wait…
