This is a recipe sitting in one of our family's recipe boxes. The name on the top is Jessie Penner. I've never met this lady, but she does make a wonderful sauerkraut cake!

This is very similar to a recipe that I used to make. You really can't taste the sauerkraut, which looks like cocoanut bits in the cake. My recipe uses 2-1/2 cups flour and only 1/4 tsp salt, and says that you can use either coffee or water. It is finished with a whipped cream mocha topping.
