About this recipe:This recipe was handed down to me from my Italian mother. It's known as 'Torta di Castagne'. It is a no-bake cake, you simply throw all the ingredients together, form a log and allow it to chill overnight before slicing and serving. It is great for any special occasion, on its own or served with whipped cream.
