Description

Invented by the Austrian Franz Sacher back in 1832, this Sachertorte is a Viennese dessert classic. Combining rich melted dark chocolate into the cake batter, this Austrian Chocolate Cake is covered with apricot jam after baking and then topped with a rich chocolate ganache. The cake batter is made with a combination of ground almonds and potato starch for a dense, moist cake that captures the melted chocolate beautifully. Your chocolate loving friends and family will thank you for this delicious dessert.
