Reading a post on a forum last night I discovered the prodigiously talented Kitchen Goddess to be found on http://culinarytravelsofakitchengoddess.wordpress.com who made cobnut macaroons with home made nutella. Now that is plain showing off. I debated whether to go and make them right there and then, but it was heading for midnight........ I cracked open 100gms of cobnuts (which isn't a quick job) and then decided it was too late. First thing this morning I decided on a cobnut cake to which I added some melted chocolate.
The recipe was a french recipe, courtesty of a forum poster Shyvas, who I sincerely thank.
I added chocolate and chestnut flour.
- 100gms cobnuts (shelled)
- 4 egg whites
- 200gms sugar
- 80gms plain flour
- 30gms chestnut flour
- 90gms melted butter
- 75gms melted 75% cooking chocolate
- Roast the nuts and grind.
- Whisk the egg whites with the sugar.
- Add the 2 flours.
- Add the melted butter and then the nuts.
- Pile into a loaf tin and bake on 170 for 30/40 mins.
