For those who may not be so familiar with this cake, the Original Sacher-Torte has been the world's famous cake since 1832 and the original recipe is a well-kept secret. I was told that there were hundreds of imitations of this dessert to date, but it's highly recommended to go to Hotel Sacher itself where it was originally created.
The Sacher cake is made of chocolate sponge cake with a thin coated apricot jam in the center and dark chocolate icing coating the entire cake. Each slice is traditionally served with a huge dollop of unsweetened whipped cream. The cake is slightly dry yet it tastes best with a portion of the whipped cream. I enjoy the less sweet taste of it and the chalky feel of dark, dark chocolate.
And one piece is definitely not enough to fill my chocolate addiction. There's no time to even think about the calories. So I had two slices of tortes of different varieties along with the outstanding cuppa coffee to soothe my addiction.
This is the plush cafe outside the Hotel Sacher overlooking the Vienna streets. It's a great feeling being able to sit here enjoying my cravings and the atmosphere is very inviting, personal and welcoming. It’s not just about enjoying the delightful cakes, but also to get a taste of Austria’s traditional coffee-house culture with the Sacher flair.
Having a cuppa coffee here is sure to please even for those non-coffee drinkers like me. For my choice of coffee, I choose Wiener melange, a Viennese blend of coffee and milk foam. It has a comforting creamy quality and is typically dusted with cocoa powder. If you're a coffee lover, this is definitely the place to satisfy your daily addiction to coffee.

the seal on top of the cake is to signify its authenticity from the Hotel. yes, the cake is quite expensive and a slice costs around RM25.
What a great combination! A perfect take on the themeReplyDelete
