As I am just in the ”getting ready for holidays and reading old recipes” mood, here is a recipe for a delicious Sacher Cake (best one of all I had tried:):
150 g of flour
150 g of bitter chocolate
150 g of butter
100 g of milled sugar
50 g of sugar (for the egg white snow)
2 spoons of coffee
bit of salt
1 small spoon of baking powder
First, melt the chocolate above boiling water. Then mix yolk, butter and sugar (for one yolk add some sugar) and after getting a clear mixture, add melted chocolate and coffee. Make snow from egg whites then softly mix it in the previous mixture along with flour (again, slowly: some egg white and some flour). You put everything in a cake baking dish and bake cake for 45-60 minutes at 175°C. After it gets cold, slice it up horizontally in two parts.
Soak the dough with mixture of 2 dl of water, 3 spoons of sugar and 2 spoons of rum (melt everything in water). Melt marmalade in a dish and spread it across the cake (middle, up and sides). Make a frosting from 1 dl of milk,1 chocolate and 1 spoon of butter (previously mixed in a dish and heated) and spread it over the cake. Let your imagination flow and add something new every time (like the slices of white chocolate on the picture).
Invite your friends over for a piece of cake and enjoy a nice evening:)
