Megan's Chestnut Cake
If you want to channel passion, bake this cake. Our neighbors, Megan and Akiva, live on a vibrant homestead raising children, chickens and trees. Akiva is known as THE tree guy around these parts, and if you have a hankering to get inspired about the great Chestnut Revival, watch his Chestnut videos here. Megan, is known as THE baker around these parts and here she makes the case for replacing wheat flour with a sustainable perennial forest crop...chestnuts! The silky nuttiness of the chestnut flour makes this cake an obvious pairing with our Essence Ice Cider.
Here is a love letter my friend Ben wrote about the marriage of apples and chestnuts found in this cider and dessert pairing. This is why we eat and drink...a sensory experience that allows a profound connection to the rich narrative of our lives and irrepressible hope for the future. We hope you can share that pleasure with someone you love. Love makes the world a better place.
