      Although the best part is telling people about the secret ingredient, the cake itself is pretty good, too! A little dry, but good flavor.

      I made this for my husbands b-day, we loved the finished product. A little nervous going into it with the saurkrautt and all but it was a great adventure and a divine desert. Thanks for making baking interesting.
