Sachertorte is one of the classics par excellence in my family. My mother has certainly done it a thousand times and I have already ventured one or the other time. Nor does it pass a visit to Vienna without taking home a Sachertorte. That’s why it was absolutely time for me to finally make a vegan version. Just at the thought of it, the water in my mouth runs together.

Vegan Sachertorte – made quickly and delicious for putting in

There was not even a reason for this. Neither a birthday nor an anniversary. I think it was just the desire for an ultra-chocolate cuisinento get in the mood for the upcoming autumn. Not for long, then… No, I don’t even think about it. No, I don’t want to think about wool sweaters and frozen windscreens. We now return to the beginning and think of the Sachertorte.

A bowl and a little patience – Voila!

This vegan sachet cake is a dream, why? You really only need one bowl and less than an hour. This gigantic soul flatterer is finished. Yummy Mummy! Added to this is the fact that this cake is far healthier than most conventional cakes, because:

  • I use coconut oil instead of margarine
  • Reduce and replace the total amount of oil with apple sauce
  • Whole cane sugar replaces white sugar
  • Dark, vegan chocolate and raspberry jam replace the classic buttercream fillings (with conventional cakes, because in the Sacher is never buttercream)

  • Divide evenly into the 2 baking pans or springters and bake in the oven for about 25-30 minutes. Use a wooden stick to test whether the cake is ready. Put in the middle of the cake, when it comes out clean, it’s done. Otherwise, bake for a few minutes and test again.
  • Remove and allow to cool completely.
