Poor man's chestnut cake: castagnaccio

Last fall, I've found out that EXPO 2015 will be hosted in Milano. It started in May and it will be open throught October. Perfect reason to visit Milano again this year! While I was combing through the food directory, just like hunting for treasure (treasure map is here), planning and imagining going from one pavilion to the next (each participating country has its own pavilion), this cake with chestnuts particularly stole my attention and I had to make it!
This cake has a very nutty, earthy like taste. You may need to get adjusted to it, but once you do you'll love it!
