Celebrate National Chocolate Cake Day!
Today is one of our favorite food holidays: National Chocolate Cake Day! Although its origin is uncertain, it’s easy to see why this is a day worth celebrating.
Before chocolate was used to bake one of our favorite cakes, it was primarily consumed as a beverage to have with yellow cake. It wasn’t until 1832 when Austrian chef Franz Sacher constructed the first and most famous chocolate cake: the Sachertorte. The Sachertorte is three layers of chocolate cake separated by thin layers of apricot jam, iced with chocolate, and served with whipped cream.
