From last week's FFWD chestnut and pear soup, I had both chestnuts and pears leftover. Accordingly, what is a girl to do other than to make baked goods with the leftovers. I chose to make this chestnut cake with pear. I didn't have fresh pears, but tinned pears worked fine.
This really is a delicious cake. It is light and spongy, and is perfectly delicious without the chocolate icing suggested in the recipe. Here's a peek inside the cake:
If you find yourself with some chestnut puree that you don't know what to do with, you can't go past this chestnut pear cake.
