Chocolate chestnut cake

Prep: 20 mins
Chocolate chestnut cake
This is incredibly easy to make and disappears quickly.

500g sweetened chestnut puree

175g soft unsalted butter

300g dark chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa solids)

3 tbsp dark rum


125ml double cream

125g dark chocolate, chopped

Handful chocolate chunky sprinkle (optional to decorate)

In a bowl add the puree along with the butter and beat until it's smooth.

Melt the chocolate and let it cool slightly, before adding it to the chestnut and butter mixture.

Beat in the rum, and spoon the chocolate mixture into a round cake tin, lined with cling film.

Wrap the overhanging cling film over the cake so that it is completely covered, and put it in the fridge to set overnight.

For the icing, use a saucepan and add the cream and chocolate, and heat gently.

Once the chocolate has melted, remove from the heat and whisk until it reaches icing consistency.
