Oh, and by the way, I found the fastest way ever (for me) to de-shell the chestnuts. --. It’s a vanilla chestnut (heavy on the chestnut) cake with a creamy eggnog frosting that makes you want to kiss an elf or something
Mix only until just combined, do not over-mix. Fill each cupcake with the Black Sesame Pastry Cream and generously frost with the Chestnut Cream Frosting so that the frosting resembles a mountain of noodles
(All chestnutscake have to be a little moist). I love chestnuts récipes, many times ago we had only chestnuts in Winter and when I lived in the south of Chile always my uncle Miguel send us chestnuts, and my mom made the chestnuts puree (I have someones of her récipes in my label chestnuts) Now we have frozen chestnuts puree so I make when I find a lovely recipe like this I adapted from a lovely Italian blog Al Cibo Comestible, Genny has delicious récipes
No cake would be more apt for MY celebration than yema cake. Yema cake was named after the sweet. It is a recent trend but it actually is almost the same as an old fashioned swiss roll called brazo dela reina (meaning the queen's arm, the same as brazo de mercedes but has a swiss roll instead of meringue for the cake base)
I have always had these 'jinx' when it comes to baking sponge cakes. I don't really know why, though I've followed exactly what the recipe said, but still, it will end up either being heavy or 'very not a sponge cake should look like'
Fold in the meringue (egg white mixture) into the flour-yolk mixture until well combined. I've been seeing some of my Filipino friends posting photos of yema cake the past few weeks, and I promised myself I will try to make it when I get the chance
The cake is dense--a cross between a pound cake and a donut--and just incredibly delicious. These little gems could be quite addictive and I can't wait to try another recipe--probably the one for donut holes
