Sacher-torte, recipe (including photos)

Ingredients for the dough:
  • 80 grams of butter (for the dough) and an additional small cube for greasing the baking pan
  • 80 grams of sugar
  • 80 grams of chocolate
  • 60 grams of flour
  • 4 eggs
  • apricot jam

Mix the butter at room temperature with the melted chocolate and half of the sugar.

Add the egg yolks one by one mixing until thick and foamy.

Add the flour and mix.

Beat the egg whites with the remaining sugar and then add them slowly over the mixture.

Pour the entire composition into a buttered form and bake it at 180 degrees Celsius for about one hour.

Ingredients for the icing:
  • 100 grams of sugar
  • 80 grams of chocolate
  • 60 milliliters of water
  • 1 teaspoon of sunflower oil

Boil the water with the sugar.

In a separate pan melt the chocolate together with the sunflower oil.
When the water/sugar composition is cooled add it over the melted chocolate and mix.

When the cake is cooled cut it in two layers.

Spread the jam in between the two layers only (not on top of the cake).

Cover the entire cake with the icing.
Let it rest in the fridge for 2 hours before serving.
