Sacher Torte Cupcake Recipe

Sacher Torte Cupcake Recipe

The Sacher Torte, invented almost by accident in 1832, has long been Austria’s most famous dessert. It’s also notoriously hard to make. So if you find yourself inspired after trying the Sacher Torte chocolates in our Slices of Love collection, we've got the just thing for you: an easy-to-make cupcake version of the original cake that's sure to please.

 

Difficulty: Easy

 

CUPCAKE INGREDIENTS

4 large eggs, separated
1-1/8 cup powdered sugar
1-1/8 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup butter
4 oz. apricot preserves
5 oz. of Godiva Dark Chocolate Baking Chips

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line a cupcake tin with liners. Gently melt the chocolate in a double-boiler or microwave, then let cool.

2. Separate the eggs, adding the whites to a mixing bowl along with half of the powdered sugar. Beat until stiff.

3. In another mixing bowl, cream the butter until light and fluffy — about 2 minutes. Add the melted chocolate and mix for another minute.

4. Gradually add the egg yolks and the remaining powdered sugar until well incorporated. Add the flour and continue mixing.

5. Fold in the egg white mixture; then fill your cupcake liners 2/3 full with batter. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

6. Heat the apricot preserves until liquid, then let cool. Use a knife or cupcake corer to cut out the centers of the cupcakes; then fill with the preserves.

FROSTING INGREDIENTS

7 oz. whipping cream
12 oz. of Godiva Dark Chocolate Baking Chips
1 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. butter


Directions

1. Bring your whipping cream to a boil on the stove, stirring constantly. Pour the heated cream into a bowl over your chocolate morsels, and then let it sit for a moment.

2. Add the softened butter and honey then mix, slowly going from low to high speed over 3-5 minutes. Refrigerate overnight.

3. Mix the frosting until light and fluffy, then spoon into a piping bag. Using a star tip, frost the cupcakes with a swirl of ganache.
