Sachertorte - The Queen of Austrian Cakes
Well known and beloved - in Austria and all around the world
The most famous Austrian chocolate cake with two layers of apricot jam and crunchy chocolate icing. A favourite in its hometown Vienna, but equally popular outside of Austria.
Created for Prince Metternich by the young Franz Sacher in 1832, the prince wanted "a special dessert for his guests", and the rest is history.
As the Guardian says: "Soft but firm, delicately chocolatey, luscious with apricot jam – a ‘grown-up chocolate cake’ that gets better with age"
‘Many of our customers, both Austrians and visitors to Vienna, say that our version is at least as good as the original’, but you should try it for yourself!
