      Excellent. I used applesauce in place of the oil. This reminds me of chocolate zucchini cake.

      This was a surprisingly good cake. (Surprising because I wasn't sure about the sauerkraut!) We had some leftover, so I wanted to use it up and we don't really like sauerkraut. I didn't tell DH what the secret ingredient was, but he could tell something was different. Still went back for a second piece after he knew! Delicious for my first made from scratch cake! Thanks! Frosting is great, too.

      Great cake, like has been said already comes out very moist, and light. Couldnt tell it was Saurkraut in it. I took some ideas from other recipes and added some chopped pecans and some desicated coconut. I will try to remember to take a phot next time I make this. Thanks.
