How it's done


Beat the butter in a bowl until soft, using the whisk on a hand mixer. Add the sugar, vanilla sugar, salt and egg yolks and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. Stir in the chestnut puree, cocoa powder and hazelnuts. Beat the egg whites with the salt until stiff, carefully fold into the mixture. Transfer the mixture to the prepared tin.


Approx. 1 hr. in the centre of an oven preheated to 180°C. Remove and allow to cool in the tin.

Good to know
Note: The cake should still be moist inside. The moistness will cause the cake to collapse a little in the middle.
Tip: Stir 1 tbsp of kirsch into the batter.
