The Sacher Torte

Who doesn’t like chocolate? Today we’re going to talk about a beautiful recipe: the Sacher Torte. It’s made with chocolate sponge, covered with chocolate. So if you feel like having some chocolate or preparing a cake for your friend whose is down the mood or having children who loves chocolate, that’s the cake for you!

The Sacher Torte was invented by Franz Sacher in 1832 in Wien, Austria. So it has nearly two hundred years this recipe.

Ingredients for a 24 cm tin or 8/12 people

For the sponge: 100 grams flour, 50 grams cornstarch, 150 grams butter, 150 grams sugar, 160 grams dark chocolate powder, 1 vanillin powder bag, 6 free range eggs, 1 pinch of bicarbonate soda, 1 pinch of salt and 16 grams of baking powder.

For the filling: 250 grams apricot jam, 50 ml water.

For the icing: 300 grams dark chocolate bar, 150 ml of water, 150 grams sugar.

Let’s start to prepare the sponge. In a bowl whisk the butter, sugar and vanillin together until they become very smooth. Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. Incorporate the yolks one by one into the creamy butter. Mix the flour, cornstarch, bicarbonate, salt and baking powder and make sure there are all mixed well together. Then sift the powders into the buttery compost little by little and with a wooden spoon keep mixing until it becomes firm. Now whip the egg whites until they become firm and add it to the sponge mix. Grease the tin with some butter and then add some flour. Add the sponge mix and bake it in a pre-heat oven for about 40 minutes at a temperature of 180@ degrees. Check with a toothpick, if it’s dry, the cake it`s ready. Do not open the oven before 20 minutes have passed.

For the icing, in a pan add the sugar and water. Stir it until it becomes clear syrup. Then add the chocolate in small chunks, cook it until it dissolve, stirring it from time to time until the sauce becomes smooth. To check if it’s ready, you can do this trick. Immerge your fingers in cold water and then into the chocolate, open up your fingers and if it’s a line it’s formed, then it’s ready.

Mix the jam and the water. Now cut the cake into two parts and brush the jam into the sponge both parts and unite the two parts. With the hot icing that we have prepared, spread it on top of the cake on a grill grate and let it cool down. Voila the cake is ready. Serve it with some whipped cream. Hoped you enjoyed.
