Bees Knees Kitchen's Thoughts

Vienna, home of breathtaking architecture, grand palaces, Mozart’s music and the Sacher Torte! My raw version follows the same guidelines as the original with two thick layers of chocolate cake, an apricot jam center and smothered in rich chocolate frosting! It is wonderfully rich and chocolatey without being too sweet and looks gorgeous topped with Cape Gooseberries.

Would this recipe be too heavy if you used pecans instead of walnuts in the cake part? This looks so delicious!

You can of course soak the Walnuts for 8-12 hours, then deyhdrate them until they are dry. If you decide not to dehydrate them then the cake batter will be too wet. Would love to hear how you get on!

I loved this dessert!! I made it tonight for my boyfriend, and we both absolutely loved it!! I added some dried coconut instead of just walnuts. It was delicious, especially the avocado icing!

This looks and sounds delicious, and I'm not a big fan of (cooked) cake. You had me with the chocolate on chocolate though. The cake itself looks moist enough ... what are your thoughts on presoaking the walnuts?

I made a Sacher Torte and was thinking about posting the recipe, but you beat me to it. My recipe was very similar to this, but I did more of a chocolate ganache than frosting per se. It was one of the best chocolate cakes I've ever had, raw or not. I liked how the cake wasn't too sweet (again, my recipe was very similar to this one), but the apricot filling and the chocolate icing balanced it beautifully. Everyone should try making it at least once.
