My grandparents live in Vienna, and i've spent summers there my entire life. This is not the sachertorte i have enjoyed at the Hotel Sacher on countless occasions. This recipe is too moist, not like the famed- whichever you take that to be. This cake tasted somewhat like a box mix- the flavors were not as deep to me, probably a result of the quality of chocolate in the States versus Wien. If you use the whipped cream, as is tradition, do not sweeten it, it overpowers the chocolate. The cake is not meant to taste like a Hershey bar as many Americans like. The difference is, desserts are on a completely different level in Austria. Pastry and sweets are time-honored, proud traditions- usually unchanged for centuries. On the up side, i imagine this would be a nice deviation from a simple cake, possibly for a birthday. I suppose i will simply have my Omi ship them to me in the States.
