So nice to visit my childhood memories! My mom used to make this all of the time! She would just used a double boiler frosting instead of the cream cheese one, so I'm going to have to try it with the cream cheese! Thank you for the memories!
Delicious! This quick and easy cake was moist and flavorful. The sauerkraut gives this cake its moistness, and if you don't tell anybody what is in it, they will never know!! I used (2) 9" round cake pans and baked it for 30 mins. My family loved it and claimed it a "winner". Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper.
