    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.

    Serves: 6 

    • 100g caster sugar
    • 45g unsweetened cocoa
    • 115g unsalted butter, melted
    • 1 (435g) tin chestnut puree
    • 50g whole almonds, chopped
    • 60g walnuts, chopped

    Prep:10min  ›  Extra time:8hr chilling  ›  Ready in:8hr10min 

    1. Stir together the sugar, cocoa, butter and chestnut puree in a bowl. Fold in the almonds and walnuts until evenly blended. Pat the mixture into a log and wrap tightly with parchment/greaseproof paper. Refrigerate overnight before slicing to serve.
