      Me and my husband love these flourless cakes, they are so intense and moist. I made this with sweetened chestnut pure and did not change anything else. Perfect, not too sweet at all. Anything that comes from Nigellas kitchen goes well down with my husband, I just need to mention her name and he's sold.
