Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Sachertorte

Base:
Combine 150 gr of butter and 100 gr of sugar and mix for a few minutes. Add 150 gr of melted plain chocolate and half a tsp of vanilla extract and mix well. After that add 5 egg yolks one at a time. When all egg yolks are incorporated into the mixture add 55 gr of plain flour and 75 gr of ground almonds. In separate bowl wisk the egg whites and transfer them to the other mixture. Combine carefully until the egg whites are fully incorporated and transfer the mixture into 23 cm cake tin (greased well in advance and covered with non-stick paper on the bottom). Bake for around 45 min, 180 C. When the base is ready let it cool completely, remove the paper and spread with apricot jam on the top and the sides (I made it once with raspberry jam and it was delicious as well)

Icing:
Bring 200 ml of double cream to simmer, remove from the stove and add 150 gr of plain chocolate. Mix well until fully incorporated and leave to cool slightly. Then pour the ganache over the top and the sides of the base.
