About This Item


Lets bake a cake
There are several travelbugs about cooking, but I could not find one about baking cakes.
The idea for this one is to share a recipe for a cake or cookie or any other sweet you like.
As this TB will start it’s journey on the 2nd geocachers meeting in Vienna I will start
with a recipe for the famous Sachertorte.

For 12 people:

130 g butter, 110 g icing sugar, 6 egg yolks,
130 g chocolate, 130 g flour, 6 egg whites,
100 g fine granulated sugar, Apricot jam,

- Beat together the butter and icing sugar
- While constantly steering gradually add in the egg yolks and the melted chocolate
- Beat the egg whites with the granulated sugar to stiff peaks and mix them into the chocolate batter. Gently fold in the flour.
- Place in a buttered tart mould and bake for 60 minutes at 180° C
- Let cool, remove from the mould, slice through the centre and fill with a layer of good apricot jam
- Glaze with chocolate

Serve the Sachertorte with whipped cream.

Placed in a cache near the base for some of the guy wires for a very tall television transmitter in Barrie, Ontario. May be able to see Austria from the top? I didn't climb it.
