Guschlbauer Chocolate Cubes

Filed under: Austrian Cake — admin @ 1:11 pm

Guschlbauer Chocolate Cubes are called “Guschlbauers Wienerwürfel” and manufactured in an Upper Austrian village known as St. Willibald. Guschlbauer is a local factor in the province of Upper Austria when it comes to candy and cakes. If there is an exhibition or an event, you can be sure to find the Guschlbauer truck selling sweets and cakes of the own production.

I found the chocolate cubes of Guschlbauer in the supermarket. The taste was really brillant. I do love dry cakes. And this is one is dust dry. The shining example of Guschlbauers chocolate cube should be no secret. It’s the Original Sacher cake. And I have to admit that this chocolate cube of Guschlbauer tasted not worser, or even the same as the Original Sacher cake. It’s really something to enjoy. But of course it depends if you like dry or juicy cakes.

4 chocolate cubes in one package.

Get ready for enjoyment!

The inside of the cube. Coated with great dark chocolate. I would say Guschlbauer created one of the best cake candy of Austria.

Traunkirchner Cake

The Traunkirchner Cake was invented by Maria Schrangl from Upper Austria in 1936.

Maria Schrangl was a ship cook on the Danube river during the 1930’s. She even came to the black sea with her ship. In that period she found time and inspiration to create her special cake.

In 1938 she had enough of cooking on the water. She bought the “Restaurant Wiesinger” in the Upper Austrian town of Marchtrenk (Welser Strasse), and started to cook on the land. She offered the Traunkirchner Cake only for special orders, and usually only rich people were able to afford this sweet speciality.

Soon the Traunkirchner Cake became a regional sweet delicacy.

Unfortunately the origin of the name is unknown. Until today the cake is known as insiders tip, and not available in shops or coffee houses. The cake on the pictures was made at home.

The Traunkirchner cake needs 3 days until it’s ready for enjoyment. Because of the costly preperation, the sweet delicacy is only made for very special events.

This is really a very delicious chocolate cake. I was surprised in a positive way.

Pischinger has a long history. The Viennese company was established in 1849, and received world fame by the invention of the “Pischinger Torte” in 1881.
