A simple recipe perfected over 180 years is just one of the elements in the process of making a great chocolate cake.
Back in 1832 Franz Sacher was commissioned by Prince Wenzel von Metternich to create a special dessert for several important guests. This was the first instance of the now famous Sacher Torte.
The original recipe is rather simple, and hasn’t changed significantly over the years. It is basically a dense chocolate cake with some layers of apricot jam and a dark chocolate coating.
But you have to see how they do it at the Hotel Sacher.
The care. The pride. Those humble yet fit-for-purpose tools.
