Emperor`s cake (Kaiserkuchen)...

Based on the recipy of the world famous Sachertorte we created a delicious chocolate cake. Emperor Franz Joseph I loved cakes, that he could easliy take in his hands. Once you tasted this delightful pastry you won´t be able keep your hands off it anymore!

The eldest of the well known tarts: Linz Tart (Linzertorte)...

The famous Linz Tart was first mentioned around 1656 and therefore is the oldest of the best-known tarts in the world. The composition of delicious nuts and spices in a short pastry and the smooth flavour of the red current jam make it a unique delight. It is optically characterized by its grid design on top. Nobody knows, where the recipy originated from - historians tell us, it was probably brought from Spain to Linz, because the grid refers to the moorish architecture and design. Nonetheless for many centuries now it has been one of Linz´ landmarks and to this very day is one of the best know tarts in the world.

Have yourself treated like an empress - our Elisabeth Cookies (Elisabethkränzchen)

We found the recipy of these unique cookies in the cookbook of Theresia Teufel, who was the personal cook of Empress Elisabeth. The later loved sweets and rather missed a big meal in order to treat herself with her beloved cakes and sweets. We added some secret elements and together with their beautiful wrapping, they are a very special present or souvenir.
