Today's cooking club theme...cabbage. Hmmm not much of a cabbage person, so I went to my mother's recipes and found this recipe for Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake! Cabbage = sauerkraut, let's give it a try. I made a few changes and here you go a moist, tender, slightly tangy delicious cake that I will make again. I didn't tell my hubby it was sauerkraut until he gave it a thumb's up.
