Tried and True (and pretty authentic) Sacher Torte Recipe

burgeoningfoodie | Aug 31, 201008:57 AM     2

Hello Hounds,

I tried my hand at making a Sacher Torte from a Wolfgang Puck recipe the other night only to see my cake rise and then spectacularly fall after I took it out of the oven. Followed the recipe exactly. I have some theories as to why it fell, but it was a first for me that is for sure.

Has anyone had a good run with an easy to follow, tried and true Sacher Torte recipe? I want to make one for a good friend of mine who really likes them but hasn't had them in awhile. I'm good with the ganache/coating and the preserve spread. The cake is where I had issues and I only have two 8x2 round pans. Despite the mention above, if you care to post the recipe, please include the preserves and the chocolate covering as well.

Thank you for your help and I look forward to the challenge of trying to make this again.
