Austrian Desserts

More Than 400 Recipes for Cakes, Pastries, Strudels, Tortes, and Candies

In this beautifully photographed book, Austrian pastry master Toni Mörwald, and award-winning restaurant critic Christoph Wagner share the secrets to crafting more than four hundred desserts, from traditional dishes such as Linzer torte and apfelstrudel to contemporary and diet-conscious recipes.

For Austrians, dessert is the culmination of any meal—the crowning achievement that can make or break a culinary experience—Austrian Desserts has it all. With easy-to-understand instructions, Mörwald and Wagner allow chefs of any skill level to create and serve:

  • Iced temptations for sultry summer days
  • Fresh berry roasts and pies
  • Crème brûlées with an Austrian twist
  • A variety of flaked baumkuchen (layer cake)
  • Chocolates and candied confections
  • And so much more!

Sprinkled between these delicious recipes are tips and tricks from a kitchen connoisseur, suggestions for health-conscious substitutions, and notes on the traditional origins of numerous Austrian dishes.
