The story of Sacher Torte begins in Vienna, Austria, during the early 19th century. It was the year 1832 when Franz Sacher, a 16-year-old apprentice at the court of Prince Metternich, was given the task of creating a special dessert for an important event. Faced with the challenge, Franz concocted a masterpiece, a cake that would become an emblem of Austrian culinary excellence.
The original Sacher Torte recipe consisted of a dense chocolate cake with a layer of apricot jam in the center, all gloriously covered in a smooth, velvety chocolate glaze. The cake was an instant sensation, captivating the palates of the Viennese elite and soon spreading its fame throughout the world.
