Sacher Torte from Ore Monogatari

Well, well, well. I’ve done it. I’ve achieved cake nirvana. I am prepared for The Great Beyond, now, thanks. There is nothing left in this world for me to experience, because I’ve already eaten the best cake attainable. Hasta luego mis amigos, Sacher Torte is all I need for the rest of my life.

I’m being dramatic, but actually, this cake is amazing. Each component is perfectly balanced to support and heighten each new taste, and the Austrians knew what they were doing when they invented this cake. Let me rewind just a little….Sacher Torte is an Austrian cake. The flavor profile is chocolate, apricot, rum, and cream. The Austrians, who, for quite a long time, made their wealth in sugar plantations, know their way around a good sweet. Seriously, these people ruled in sweets.

And Yamato knew what she was doing when she made this treat for Takeo. Dang guys, this girl has skillz. She seems so innocent and sweet, but clearly she is a master temptress with this dessert. Seriously, if someone made me delicious cakes I would be theirs forever, no questions asked.

Cake Salé from Ore Monogatari

As you may have guessed by now, I really enjoy cooking and baking, and because of this, I can really identify with Yamato san. She is my home girl. Her and me, we understand each other. She plans her foods for future events months in advance, just like I do. I get that. I understand. When she made Cake Salé, I was flabbergasted! I had never heard of such a thing before, but I trust Yamato san as a fellow baker, so I decided to do some research.

Turns out Cake Salé is a French thing, a bit like a savory bread rather than an actual cake. It has a similar consistency to a cake or a muffin, but is full of yummy savory things like meats, cheese, olives, etc. I can get behind this! So I tried it out, and it was so yummy and, surprisingly, really easy to make. Yamato san makes 2 different types, in episodes 3 (on the right) and 8 (on the left), but I chose to make the ones from episode 8 because the ones from episode 3 have corn and peas and carrots in them, and that seemed boring to me.
