Chestnut Cake (Castagnaccio)

One of my favorite sweets here in Italy…
This cake is so simple to make and so tasty!!
I guess I eat it at least one time a week πŸ™‚

What you need is:
β€’ 250 grams of chestnut flour
β€’ oil
β€’ raisins (a handful)
β€’ pine nuts (also a handful)
β€’ Rosemary leaves
β€’ water (half liter)

First blend water and chestnut flour, let it stand a bit and add later raisins, pine nuts, 2 spoons of oil and a pinch of salt.
This hast to be in the oven for 35 minutes at 220 degree.
Later put a few rosemary leaves over it and after baking put 2 other spoons of oil over the cake.
I would suggest to eat directly a piece when it’s still warm! But of course with a little cooling up time before!!
