Fondant a la creme de marron

For creme de marron(french chestnut cream) lover, this dessert is a must try. It's a little crusty on the top and soft and moist in the interior.

Fondant a la creme de marron
  • 1 can of 500g creme de marron, sweetened.
  • 3 eggs
  • 75 g butter
  • 1 tablespoon of cacao powder, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon of flour, sifted
  • a pinch of salt

Preheat the heat to 180 degrees C. Grease a rectangle baking pan (the size is about 12cm*15cm?). Or you can use muffin pan instead and you serve the fondant in individual portion. I think you can make about 5-6 portions.

Butter the butter in the microwave. Cool it. Add the melted butter to the chestnut cream. Mix before adding the rest of the ingredients to the paste. Mix again until the paste becomes smooth.

Pour the paste into the baking pan. And bake for 25 mins.
