As requested: Cake Receipe

OK, here's my Oma's Sauerkraut Cake receipe. I *highly* suggest you use a stand mixer, but that's because I'm lazy. :grin:

2/3 C butter
1.5 C sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2.25 C sifted flour (I didn't sift it)
.5 C unsweetened cocoa (I used Hershery's Dark Chocolate)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
.25 tsp salt
1 C water
2/3 C sauerkraut, rinsed, drained and chopped

Cream butter4 until light and fluffy; add sugar and beat until blended. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Sift flour (I didn't) and measure the 2.25 Cups. Add to flour: cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt, sift again (again, I didn't). Add alternately with water to egg mixture. Gently but thoroughly stir in chopped sauerkraut. Turn into two greased and floured (I used a bundt pan, and used cocoa instead of flour)8-inch or 9-inch round pans lined on the bottom with waxed paper (I didn't use the paper in my bundt pan). Bake at 350* for 30 minutes (I baked at 325* for 40 - your mileage may vary). Allow to completly cool before frosting.


1.5 C heavy cream
3 Tblspn powdered sugar
1 Tblspn dry instant coffee
2 tsp cocoa
2 Tblspn rum OR 1 tsp rum flavoring

Whip cream until fairly stiff; gradually beat in powdered sugar. Add coffee and cocoa. Shake beater clean and fold in rum flavoring (or rum). Beat again until quite stiff (this takes a while). Frost cake, and enjoy!

The cake itself is moist and sweet; the mocha icing *makes* it. It's quite good - and you can NOT tell the sauerkraut is in it - people think it's coconut. :grin:

  • Houston, we have a date!

    The cabinets will be installed Feb. 1 and 2. Let me repeat that: I should have a fully functional kitchen Feb.2!!!!!!!!!!! I don't think I have…

  • I see the light!

    Floors are DONE. Finished. Beautiful. The kids' bathroom is virtually done - the grout needs to finish curing (tomorrow evening!) and we need to hang…

  • So, let's get y'all up to date, shall we?

    Sunday, most of the kids bathroom was textured, but not all. Football was on, so nothing else got accomplished by the male portion of the equation,…
