SACHER TORTE

Sacher torte is a legendary chocolate cake invented in 1832 by Franz Sacher in Vienna, Austria.

The cake is comprised of two layers of dense, mildly sweet chocolate cake (usually a sponge cake) with dark chocolate icing on the top and sides and a thin layer of superior-quality apricot jam in the middle.
It's most commonly served with sugarless whipped cream as most Viennese consider the Sacher-torte too "dry" to be eaten without a counterpart.

The original recipe is a well-kept secret of the Sacher Hotel, built in 1876 by the son of Franz Sacher.
The trademark for the "Original Sachertorte" was even registered by the Hotel.

However, another pastry shop ("Demel") had also produced a cake called the "Original Sachertorte" and until 1965 Hotel Sacher was in a long legal battle over the trademarked name.
Hotel Sacher prevailed and the cake at Demel is now called "Demels Sachertorte".
It differs from the "Original" in that the layer of apricot jam lies directly underneath the chocolate cover, covering the entire cake, instead being in the middle.

The Original Sachertorte is one of the most famous Viennese culinary specialties.


It's only made in the cities of Vienna and Salzburg, and is shipped from both locations. Bolzano, Italy is the first and currently only Sacher shop beyond the borders of Austria.
