I substituted 6 T. flaxseed meal for about a third of the butter. I also added between 1/2 and 3/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips along with the sauerkraut. I baked this in a Bundt pan for 45 minutes. It was very nice, but next time I will increase the cocoa a bit and be sure I add the chocolate chips again. This recipe is a real keeper. Even the pickiest eaters in my house had no idea at all that there was sauerkraut in it; they loved it!

This was really good, I was very pleased. I chopped the sauerkraut super fine, so there were only a few incidents with stringy pieces. I frosted this cake with the Chocolate Frosting I recipe and took a few pieces down to the boys at the neighborhood bar and they enjoyed it.

It was pretty good, the saurkraut needs 2 either be chopped really super fin eor food processed. My brother really didn't enjoy the stringy pieces of pickeled cabbage.
