    This is what you're really looking for



    3/4 c Butter

    2/3 c Caster sugar

    5 Egg yolks

    1/4 t Almond essence

    175 g Plain chocolate (6 oz)

    1 1/2 c Ground hazelnut filberts

    1/2 c Self-raising flour

    2 T Cocoa

    6 Egg whites


    4 T Apricot jam

    1/3 c Butter

    175 g Plain chocolate (6 oz)

    2 T Apricot brandy (or subst.)

    Preheat oven to 160C (325F). Grease a 9in spring form cake tin and line the bottom with greaseproof paper.

    Cream the butter then add 1/3c sugar slowly, beating in between additions.

    Add the egg yolks one at a time, beating in between. Melt the chocolate and add it to the mixture along with the almond essence and hazelnuts. Beat. Fold in the cocoa and flour.

    Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then add 1/3c sugar slowly, whisking in between additions. Stir about a quarter of this into the cake mixture to lighten it, then *fold* in the remainder. Spoon this into the cake tin.

    Bake for 60 - 70 minutes, until the top is firm and the centre cooked (testwith a metal skewer). Cool and remove from tin.

    Warm the apricot jam until it is semi liquid. Spread over the top andsides of the cake. Allow to cool and set slightly. Melt the butter and the chocolate for the icing and mix with the brandy, if used. Cool until it reaches a consistency for icing, then ice the top and sides of the cake.

    Its not exactly a side dish, but it can be eaten however people want to. This is a recipe for my moms BBQ. It's never failed at picnics! 1 lb Hamburger 1 C Ketchup 2 T Mustard 2 T Brown sugar 1 T Vinegar 3 T Relish 1 Carrot, grated 1 Onion, diced Throw everything into a pot over medium heat or a slow cooker and let it do its thing. Stir it occasionally. In a pot it takes about an hour. In a slow cooker you could let it go all day, longer the better really. If there are going to be a lot of people, I really suggest doubling or tripleing this recipe :) Hope it helps enjoy!

    garash torta is equivalent to sacher torte. Here is the recipe:
