Every year my family really does roast chestnuts like the famous Christmas song...most of the nuts end up in a traditional wine-soaked stuffing recipe from days gone by. For some reason I'm not a stuffingloving person so I groove on using chestnuts in sweeter treats instead. Liane's chestnut cream-covered cake is a yumfully wonderful choice! The cornmeal and teff is a flavorful combination and the chestnut cream is lickably delish...so good on hearty bread or chocolate cupcakes or drizzled on roasted parsnips! Liane's recipes include chestnut flourpowered waffles, beignets and a luscious custard cake too! :)
