Sauerkraut Recipes


1 pkg. devil’s food cake mix (18.25 oz)
2/3 cup water
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup Silver Floss sauerkraut, rinsed, drained and finely chopped

Combine cake mix, water, eggs and oil in large bowl. Blend at low speed until moistened. Beat 2 minutes at high speed (electric mixer) or by hand. Stir in sauerkraut until well mixed. Pour into well-greased and floured bundt pan or tub pan, two 8 or 9 inch round cake pans, or 13 x 9 inch pan. Bake at 350 deg. until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean and cake springs back when touched lightly in center: 35 to 45 minutes for bundt or tube pan, 25-35 minutes for round pans, or 30-40 minutes for 13 x 9 inch pan. Cool 15 minutes (25 minutes for bundt cake); remove from pan and cool on rack. Topping: For a spectacular effect, spread 1 can of Comstock Cherry pie filling on top of bundt cake.
