Chestnut desserts are quite popular here in Austria. They are usually made from chestnut flour or puree, which contributes to their tender texture and natural sweetness as such desserts use less sugar. 

This chestnut cake is simple and incredibly delicious. It’s moist, fairly chocolaty, and not too sweet. It’s nice to serve with tea and coffee. Naturally, it’s a gluten-free cake that doesn’t use wheat flour. 

Enjoy!

Good morning, thank you for your question! Usually you replace 1 egg with one tablespoon of flax seed meal mixed with three tablespoons of water. I didn’t try this for this particular recipe, let me know how it turned out! Thank you!
