Chestnut and pear cake





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.

An excellent use of left over ingredients! I imagine this would be beautifully moist.

this looks delicious - I now feel bad that I threw out two pears yesterday - wish I had been as resourceful
