Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, salt, and water. Whisk the batter well until the batter is silky smooth in consistency.

Add the olive oil to a nonstick pie pan and heat in the oven for 5 minutes. Once the oil and pie pan are hot, add the batter. Smooth out the batter evenly. Sprinkle the raisins, pine nuts, rosemary and orange zest on top.

Bake the cake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the top is golden.

    This chestnut flour cake is awesome and easy to make. My daughter eats gluten free so when I saw David Rocco make this cake I immediately thought of my daughter. We just celebrated an early Christmas together. My daughter made this chestnut flour cake. She and I both love it. It's easy to make and the orange zest makes it even tastier. Thank you!
