National Sachertorte Day

The National Sachertorte Day is observed on December 5. This food holiday is dedicated to a specific type of chocolate sponge cake invented by the Austrian confectioner Franz Sacher.

In 1832, Prince Wenzel von Metternich required that his personal chef cook a special dessert for several important guests. The chef was ill at the moment therefore the task fell to his 16-year-old apprentice, Franz Sacher. Sacher created a chocolate sponge cake with apricot jam and dark chocolate icing which is said to have delighted the guest.

Having completed his training, Sacher opened a specialty delicatessen and wine shop in Vienna. His eldest son Eduard perfected his father’s recipe and developed the Sacher torte into its modern form. The cake has become one of the most famous Viennese culinary specialties.

“The Original Sachertorte” is a trademarked label. It is sold at the Vienna and Salzburg locations of the Hotel Sacher, at the Sacher Shop in Bolzano, at Cafe Sacher branches in Graz and Innsbruk. The original cake has two thin layers of apricot jam between the sponge base and the outer layer of chocolate icing. It is typically served with unsweetened whipped cream.

It is not necessary to go to Vienna in order to celebrate the National Sachetorte Day. This delicious chocolate cake can be made at home. It is also served as a dessert in numerous restaurants.
