This time of year has me thinking of chestnuts more than ever. Fresh chestnuts as well as jarred and vacuum-packed versions pop up at supermarkets and specialty stores, conjuring up images of chestnuts roasting on an open fire and special chestnut desserts for the holidays.
Chestnuts are one of my favorite things. My love for them is pretty well documented here (type in "chestnuts" in the search bar) and I'd like to add another chestnut dessert to the roster today. This time, I'm exploring a rendition of the classic chestnut sponge cake you'd find at a Chinese bakery.
