Don't be put off by the name - this is an extremely delicious and moist apple and nut cake with a coarser texture. You drain the liquid off the sauerkraut so it doesn't overpower the cake.
I read the only other review of this recipe and decided that nothing could be all that bad if porpoerly prepared. Having baked with sauerkraut before I knew that if not thooroughly washed it would not be good. I tried this recipe and foud it to be very good and even gave some to firends who do not like sauerkraut and they found the cake to be most enjoyable. - 02 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was horrible, don't try it. - 27 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
It all depends on the brand of sauerkraut you buy when making something like this. Canned or bagged, and if it has a strong flavor to it or not. Some bagged krauts are sweeter than others. - 04 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
