Pud - Choc Chestnut Cake, decadent and so rich, used half Cadbury dairy milk choc. - 16 Feb 2014
Lovely texture with the chestnuts and looks very heavy. Flavour-wise it is very bitter, however that could be because I used 74% dark chocolate, so maybe a 50% would be a bit better or perhaps increase the sugar content. You definitely need to have the cream with it to balance the bitterness. On the whole though a nice cake and I would make it again with some tweaks! - 03 Nov 2011
amazing fudgy cake...a hit with hungarian inlaws!! a bit timely but worth every minute...a tip though, cut out a piece of wax paper the same size or a little smaller than the finished cake to place on the cooling rack because it will be difficult to remove after the glaze has dried. a new family favorite - 27 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
