Yes. Sauerkraut. No. You don't taste it. You don't even really notice its there. It adds some fibre, some moisture. Tell people what's in it /after/ they eat it.
Sauerkraut Cake (adapted from Canadian Lutheran Ladies Family Favourites Cookbook)
2 1/4 c flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup butter or margarine
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup water
2/3 cup sauerkraut (drained, rinsed, chopped well)
Combine dry. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Add liquid and dry ingredients alternately ending with dry. Stir in sauerkraut. Bake in a 9x13 pan at 350F for 30 mins.
It certainly doesn't suck to have a piece of this with boozed cherries that didn't seal properly poured liberally on top. I mean, they didn't seal properly, clearly they need using up. Clearly.
