Sacher Torte is a German term meaning a rich chocolate cake. Likewise , Sacher Torte is a moist chocolate cake with a filling of apricot jam which is hidden underneath the chocolate topping. It is usually served with whipped cream.
Personal Note: You've got to travel to Vienna and experience falling in long line just to get a seat in Hotel Sacher Cafe to be able to taste a piece of Sacher Torte. Believe it or not, I waited in line, too like many others. Almost everyday, during my 25 days in Vienna, I walked by Sacher Hotel Cafe and almost everyday, too,there is a long line of people waiting to be seated to taste the "original Sacher Torte". I have lots of pictures standing infront of their display window admiring the Original sacher Torte. Unfortunately, it was my sister who made a photo of the Torte when we finally got our chair and has not given me a copy until now.
