To make this cake you roast, boil and puree your chestnuts before adding them to eggs, milk, brandy, chocolate and almonds to make the cake batter.
Delicious! Gorgeous cake, easy to make and works really well as a breakfast cake I didn't add any milk though as it wasn't in the instructions - what stage is that added at? - 30 Nov 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
I just made it and my whole family loves it. @Cherries Jubilee, adding milk is in the instruction. #3. Put the chestnut and milk together then puree. - 15 Jul 2015 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
I agree with cherries jubilee, the recipe tells you to soften the chestnuts in the milk, drain well and purée the chestnuts it doesn't tell you when or even if to put the milk in. I will be making this next weekend will review the results minus the milk. Made this cake this morning, quite expensive to make, my Husband liked it but I didn't, for me, it wasn't worth grating my finger for when I prepared the chocolate but we all have different tastes I guess. - 20 Jan 2018 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
