I made this chestnut chocolate cake for my girlfriend. She lives quite far away from me so a little while ago I bought a small heart-shaped baking form in order to show her every now and again how much I miss her.
She’s also been asking me more and more often lately when I will post another recipe (what she really means is: when will you finally make me another heart cake?).
A heart-shaped cake says ‘I miss you’
In any case apparently she’s quite happy with my recipes and by pouring my cakes into this lovely shape at least I’m able to send her a little bit of the enchantment of the cakes which I’ve made for her but which she will actually unfortunately never taste, except when she comes to visit me.
I can wholeheartedly recommend anyone to buy a nice heart-shaped springform pan, as it’s simply much nicer to give your cake an exciting shape than to make the standard round one.
All of my favourite ingredients in one chestnut chocolate cake
To further express my hardship (and to eat the pain away somewhat) I’ve decided to put all of my favorite ingredients into this cake, like chestnut flour, cocoa, peanut butter, almond flour, almonds, almond milk, coconut oil, xylitol and dates. These are all healthy ingredients and things that I can endlessly keep putting into my mouth.
