Recipe: Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake

You may not think sauerkraut when contemplating a chocolate dessert but, yes, it’s a delicious combo. Trust us, the staff at wildbrine love this chocolate sauerkraut cake. While you cannot taste the kraut at all, it’s working culinary magic behind the scenes. This unique cake ingredient adds moistness, an acidic tang that adds backbone to the sweetness, and layers on more texture (kind of like coconut) to an otherwise ordinary cake. Plus, it adds more nutrition to the mix. Win, win, win… win. For a little giggle, surprise people by guessing the “secret”  ingredient.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 TBSP pure vanilla
3 eggs
1 cup water
3/4 cup wildbrine Raw Organic Green Sauerkraut, drained and chopped

I was first introduced to this delicious cake in the 70s. A coworker brought it in to a roomful of skeptics but we quickly became converts.
