Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_9612– the size of my pan is L 19cm x W 5cm x H 5.5cm. feel free to use your desired loaf pan, but not something that’s too big as this recipe yields a small loaf
我家的烤盘尺寸为长 19 x 宽 5 x 高 5.5厘米。您可用自己心意的模子,不过不要太大,因为这个食谱做出来的量比较小

– if you do not have candied chestnuts, you can always make it at home. there are many such recipes available in the internet
网上挺多糖泽栗子食谱,可搜一搜,自己试做哈

– if you do not want to use candied chestnuts, use cooked/steamed chestnuts and pump up sugar to 80-85g
如果不想用糖泽栗子,可以用煮熟/蒸熟的栗子。不过糖份需稍增量 ~约 80~85克
