That is really interesting you would never think of sauerkraut in a cake. I bet it is super moist.
Ron For some reason the beer jumped to the side of the salt..... it is 1 c. beer
I remember this recipe from years ago but had completly forgotten about it. It is really moist and contray to belief you can't taste the kraut. Delicious yum-yum.
My dad would eat this cake simpley because it had beer in it. Even though you can not taste it. LOL!
