Modern Classic Holiday Desserts
From airy cream puffs with chocolate sauce to sticky toffee pudding, here are modern classic holiday desserts.
Sacher torte is a classic Austrian chocolate cake layered with apricot preserves. Lidia Bastianich’s version uses the preserves three ways: for moistening the cake layers, as a thick filling between the layers and as a glaze to seal the cake before covering it in chocolate. The cake is moist and luscious on its own, but it’s also delicious served the traditional way, with unsweetened whipped cream.
