Austria's most famous and revered cake. A dark, rich chocolate cake filled with apricot jam, it actually improves with keeping a day or two and is fabulous served with freshly whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. The original recipe is a closely guarded secret but we think Karen's version comes very close.
Bake With A Legend Online Classes are an interactive experience, where we limit group sizes to around 20 to ensure an intimate online setting. Not only do you have your celebrity baker teaching you, but you also have one of our brilliant Bake With A Legend hosts who will ensure the smooth running of your experience ensuring everyone is enjoying themselves.
If you need any help at any point during the class, you’ll be encouraged to raise your hand and your baker will be virtually joining you in your own kitchen in no time to assist you!
You’ll bake along in tandem with Karen, learning many tips and tricks a long the way as you perfect all the skills required to make Karen's delicious take on the Rich Austrian Cake. Karen will also be on hand to answer your questions, be those about baking or her experiences of being involved on such an iconic television show.
