Preparation of Castagnaccio:

In a bowl, mix the chestnut flour and water. Stir until a smooth dough. Add olive oil, raisins soaked in boiling water and drained, pine nuts, salt. Mix everything well. Sprinkle with rosemary.

Pour the finished mixture into a greased pan sprinkled with some flour. You can come across the recipe with added nuts and even blueberries. Spray with olive oil.
