Yes! Here it finally is: THE vegan sachertorte recipe you’ve been looking for. No more words needed.

Vegane Sachertorte

Serves about 30 (one baking tray, about 20×30 cm)

  • 250 g spelt flour
  • 200 g wholemeal spelt flour (or normal spelt flour)
  • 50 g cocoa powder
  • 300 g brown sugar
  • 20 g baking powder
  • 500 ml water (if using only normal spelt flour, reduce to 450 ml)
  • 100 g oil
  • 100 ml vegan milk
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 250 g apricot jam (or any other jam, if you don’t care about “original” sacher)

Preheat the oven to 180° C (350° F). Line a baking tray with baking paper. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Add water and oil and pour the mixture on the baking tray. Bake for 30 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out dry.

Meanwhile prepare the ganache. Chop the chocolate. In a small pot, bring the milk to a boil and add the chocolate. Let it stand for about a minute, until the chocolate has become soft. Stir until you have a nice, shiny, ganache.

Cut the cake in half and spread the jam on the cake. Cover with the upper part of the cake and spread the ganache on top of it. Keep in a cool place for about an hour or until the ganache has dried.
