Foodie Friday: Chestnut Cake

It’s been a while since I’ve had roasted chestnuts. They make me think of winter and Christmas songs. But I did go for some chestnut cake recently.

Chestnut cake: soft pastry with chestnut paste

It’s a sweet offering that uses chestnut paste in the middle of soft doughy layers. The Japanese chestnuts used on the inside are a bit like sweet potato in taste and density.

Thumbs-up!

Fun fact: Besides being eaten by themselves, chestnuts can be incorporated in a Japanese rice dish
