Make a

caramel

in the pan by heating 3 tablespoons of sugar sprinkled with a few drops of water.

As soon as the caramel begins to toast, pour it into a

tart tin

and cover the bottom well, stirring the tin so that it spreads.

Cook the chestnuts for

five minutes,

giving them a cut so that they can be peeled.

Peel it off patiently and remove the inner cuticle and leave it clean.

This is important, otherwise it would not be so tasty to eat.

Put the peeled chestnuts to cook in the milk until they are soft.

Blend the chestnuts and milk, mixing them with the

butter

, all with the help of the hand mixer.

In a bowl, mix the sugar with the egg yolks, beating until white.

Add the cooked chestnut cream and mix well.

Beat the whites aside until stiff and add to the bowl with enveloping movements.

Fill the caramelized mold and bake in a double boiler in the oven for

30 minutes

.

Use a toothpick to check that it comes out clean, which will indicate that it is cooked.

Let cool and unmold carefully, turning the cake so that the caramel part is on top.

Garnish with chestnuts in syrup and serve.
