Over Christmas I always get back into baking, and this year I decided to make a dark chocolate cake that is super indulgent without being full of sugar . The Sacher Torte is an Austrain cake which is dense and packed full of flavour from the dark chocolate, espresso and apricot jam. The cake was fairly simple to make, with just the issue of separating the eggs and adding the whites and yolks separately making it slightly more time consuming than an average sponge.
I followed this recipe from Good Housekeeping, although I didn’t do the icing as I didn’t want it to be overly sweet. I found some other recipes which look just as good like this one from BBC Food and this one from Delia online. Overall, this is a perfect occasion cake which doesn’t need to much expertise in the kitchen.
