Learn how to make one of the sweets that Yamato made for your loved one! O Sachertorte (in Japanese, ザッハトルテ), which is also known in Brazil as Torta Sacher, is a sweet that came from Austria and is appreciated all over the world.

In particular, the Japanese placed this cake (although it is called a pie, it is nothing more than a cake) on the menu of their patisseries and is also used as a gift option for the Valentines Day.

This dessert is so successful, that it even helped Mc Donalds in Japan to come out of a crisis created by a meat scandal in 2015, where the chain's popularity dropped a lot. Mc Café invested in foreign sweets and Sachertorte was included and became one of the most requested.

Considerations before starting the recipe

In Oremonogatari, Yamato made this dessert in small portions and wrapped them in molds. You can do it in one size only.
The following recipe is an adapted version of the recipe found in Japanese manga.

The original Sachertorte has apricot jam as a filling, but if you don't like it, you can choose another jam, or use chocolate glaze if you want.

Glazing is the liquid chocolate coating that is placed last. Only make the glaze when the cake is completely ready, as it should be used while still warm.
Without more, let's go to the recipe!
