Chocolate and chestnut cake
I've just made this particular piece of cake heaven this morning - you've got to try it! Chocolatey and moist, soft and buttery................
2 large eggs
4oz self raising flour
2 - 3 tbsp good cocoa powder
1 small tin sweetened chestnut puree (200 - 250g)
milk to mix
Cream butter and sugar, beat in whisked eggs; add chestnut puree, beat well, then add in flour and cocoa. Beat well to mix thoroughly, adding enough milk to give a soft dropping consistency. Turn into a prepared loaf tin and bake in a hot oven for about 35 - 40 minutes until well risen and firm to the touch. Turn out on a wire rack to cool, if you coudl wait that long. Would be lovely as a pudding with cream..........
