|What is "Sachertorte"?||
A ‘Sachertorte’ is a chocolate sponge cake, which is filled and or coated with apricot jam, and then covered with a plain chocolate glaze. It is served with ‘Schlagobers'(whipped cream) on the side. I once spent 8 months in Vienna, and very few days went by where I did not have Sachertorte and coffee at a coffee shop, and I have to say, I have yet to come across a proper example of this cake outside of Austria.
‘Schlagobers’ is the name of a ballet with a score and libretto by Richard Strauss – a group of children in a Viennese Cake shop find the confections coming to life. I for one, would love to see it being performed. A Sachertorte come to life would leave me with an epic dilemma – do I devour it, or let it live?
