Sacher Cake (Serbian= Zaher Torta, Захер Торта)
Zaher cake is easy to make and it is beyond delicious! That's about all I have to say about it. It is my most favorite cake.
10 tbsp sugar
250g ground walnuts
250g butter, melted
200g bitter sweet chocolate
1.5 tbsp flour
250g apricot jam
100g bitter sweet chocolate
3 tbsp sugar
5-6 tbsp milk
Separate egg whites and egg yolks.
Beat 10 egg whites until they form a hard foam.
Once the white foam is hard, add sugar and egg yolks.
Mix all together.
Fold in the walnuts.
Mix in the flour.
On the stove, melt the butter and chocolate.
Allow this mixture to cool a bit. Then add it to the egg, sugar and walnut mix.
Transfer into the 9" springform. Bake at 350F for about 45 minutes.
Spread apricot jam over the top.
Then spread melted chocolate/ butter mix. Cover the sides as well. Try to make a nice uniform layer.
Refrigerate for the glaze to solidify before serving.
