Just a quick post for Sweet Melissa Sundays, our treat this week is a Sacher Torte, picked for us to try by Jessica of My Baking Heart, thank you Jessica! This cake recipe is actually the exact cake recipe for the Speakeasy Cake I made two weeks ago, with a couple of tiny tweaks -- a layer of jam and a dried apricot on top.
Since I already made the full version for the Speakeasy, I decided to do half a recipe and bake the cake into minis with my Texas sized Muffin Pan.
After baking the cakes are split and jam is added to the middle, before being sandwiched back together...
Then comes the yummy ganache glaze and a chocolate dipped dried apricot just for fun :)
I ended up baking the six mini cakes for 30 minutes which was just right, they turned out moist and decadent. This recipe has piqued my interests regarding Sacher Torte recipes and I may try a more authentic Sacher Torte soon! Love the culinary history behind this recipe, thanks for the fun SMS pick, Jessica!
