Corsican Spice Bread with Candied Citrus

The more difficult articles to find like chestnut honey and chestnut powder may be found at Supermarket Italy (link on sidebar) or also Yummy Bazaar (link on sidebar). There are probably other places to find those products like and I would bet Walmart also has those items (because Walmart has everything and that is an excellent thing of course), but not being sure, I thought I would mention two places of surety to have.


This recipe brings some of the best ingredients of Corsica together: Wonderfully nutty chestnut flour, fragrant citrus and the island’s dense, dark-golden honey. Making this cake takes my imagination back on a hike through the island’s lush green forests, and I can almost smell the damp forest floor after a violent summer rain. –

Even if your imagination is not quite as (over-)active, or you simply have not yet travelled to Corsica, this not too sweet spice cake may be a wonderful choice for your tea break. And if you like it a bit sweeter, you may choose to drizzle a bit of that honey on top…
