   1 1/2 c  Sugar
     1/3 c  Sugar
       4 tb Bourbon
       2 ts Bourbon
   2 1/2 c  Pureed unsweetened
            - chestnuts
     3/4 c  Ground pecans

       6 tb Chilled butter; cut into

   1 1/2 oz Bitter chocolate; chopped
     3/4 lb Bittersweet chocolate
   3 1/2 c  Whipping cream
     1/2 c  Confectioners' sugar
   1. Make the cake: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 2 nine-inch
   cake pans. Beat 6 egg yolks well. Stir in 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1 1/2
   teaspoons bourbon, then blend in 2 cups chestnut purEe. Stir in ground
   pecans. Whip egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff. Fold whites into
   the batter. Divide the mixture between the two cake pans and bake for 25
   minutes. Cool on a cake rack, then remove from the pans.
   2. Make the filling: Beat the 2 egg yolks with  1/3 cup sugar. Add instant
   coffee and 1 tablespoon hot water. Beat chilled butter into mixture, then
   add 1/2 teaspoon bourbon and remaining 1/2 cup chestnut puree. Stir in
   chopped bitter chocolate. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
   3. Melt bittersweet chocolate with heavy cream over low heat. Stir in 2
   tablespoons bourbon, transfer to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and
   4. To assemble the cake, spread the chilled chestnut filling atop one cake
   layer and cover with the other. Cover the torte with the chocolate icing
   and sprinkle the top with chopped pecan pieces. Chill before serving.
   Meanwhile, prepare a bourbon chantilly to pass at the table. Whip the 2
   cups of cream to soft peaks, gradually beat in the confectioner's sugar and
   then fold in 2 tablespoons bourbon.
