Sachertorte (UK: /ˈzæxərtɔːrtə/, US: /ˈsɑːkərtɔːrt/, German: [ˈzaxɐˌtɔʁtə] (listen)) is a chocolate cake, or torte, of Austrian origin, invented by Franz Sacher, supposedly in 1832 for Prince Metternich in Vienna. It is one of the most famous Viennese culinary specialties.
According to Franz Sacher's son Eduard, Sachertorte was invented by Sacher when he was an apprentice under Metternich's chef Chambellier. The story goes that Sacher was required to create a novel cake when the chef was ill. The Metternich connection was probably invented by Eduard many years later, to appeal to \"Viennese nostalgic for their imperial past\".
Hotel Sacher's \"Original Sacher Torte\" is sold at the Vienna and Salzburg locations of the Hotel Sacher, at Cafe Sacher branches in Innsbruck and Graz, at the Sacher Shop in Bolzano, in the Duty Free area of Vienna airport, and via the Hotel Sacher's online shop.

Sachertorte is a specific type of chocolate cake, or torte, invented by Austrian Franz Sacher in 1832 for Prince Metternich in Vienna, Austria. It is one of the most famous Viennese culinary specialties.
That did the trick. This cake still has the classic taste and texture of a true Sachertorte, but is a little softer. I do like the cake better after a day or two when the preserves have had time to absorb into the cake. Which means, of course, that this is a great recipe to make ahead.
This torte is named after the classical composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who was born in Salzburg, Austria. It is hard to pin down a classic recipe for Mozart Torte, as these vary considerably.One thing that is clear is that the original cake was inspired by the dessert Mozartkugeln. Confectioner Paul Fürst first created Mozartkugeln in 1890 in Salzburg. It consists of spheres made out of Viennese nougat, which has a soft, truffle-like consistency, and pistachio marzipan covered in chocolate. Their popularity inspired the Mozart Torte, invented by Michael Prousek in 2005 for Chocolaterie & Grosskonditorei Aïda in Vienna.Although developed more recently than Apfelstrudel and Sachertorte, this delicious cake is a modern classic! 781b155fdc
