“Oh, that he may not discredit me tonight!” – These words of Prince Metternich of Austria marked the beginning of the story of the Original Sacher-Torte in 1832. The court of Prince Metternich had requested a dessert for a special occasion, but the chef was ill at the time, so 16-year-old apprentice Franz Sacher filled in. The cake he created could not have been more delicious.
The Original Sacher-Torte is still hand-made using Franz Sacher’s original recipe to this day, and is best enjoyed with a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream. (Chocolate) dreams do come true!
Sachertorte is a chocolate cake that is beautifully dense, topped with an apricot chocolate glaze… Pip was introduced to this gateau (cake really doesn’t do it justice) via a home-made approximation by a friend – and then the ORIGINAL when she got married and it was used as the wedding cake! This has been informally made with a dollop of apricot jam in a Classic hot chocolate for a few years now, but the time has come to now release the glory to everyone.
Just pop it into cold milk on the hob and stir it in whilst it slowly heats, melts, and blends beautifully to make the best hot chocolate.
