Salted butter, for the cake tin

500g sweetened chestnut purée

4 eggs

40g cocoa powder

Leaves from 4 rosemary sprigs, plus extra sprigs for the top

Icing sugar, to dust


1. Heat the oven to 180 ̊C/Fan or 160 ̊C/Gas 4. Butter a 20cm round cake tin and line with baking parchment.

2. Pour the chestnut purée into a large mixing bowl. Separate the eggs and lightly beat the yolks with a fork, then add them to the purée. Pour in the ground almonds, add the cocoa and mix well.
Roughly chop the rosemary leaves and add them to the batter, then stir until well combined.
