Kitchen Chater's Chocolate Kraut Cake

Pat Duran


This recipe is from my Aunt Clara, this cake was alway made with my Uncle John's homemade sauerkraut(which is so good, when I was a kid my cousin and I would sneak into the shed and lift the lid to the barrel and take up the stone and plate and eat the sauerkraut..My Uncle got wise and put a padlock on the door- didn't matter we went in the back window) anyway this sauerkraut(what was the this makes a great cake. I can still taste that sauerkraut.....
