Attention Baking Gurus
« on: August 20, 2014, 09:03:59 AM »
Have any of you tried or baked a Sauerkraut & Beer Cake?  My mother-in-law used to make them all the time and them boys are good.  My wife and I were drooling whilst talking about it last night.  If you wanna try it, I strongly recommend it.  Trust me, you won't even taste the sauerkraut.


1-1/2 cups sugar

2/3 cup shortening or butter

3 eggs

1-1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup cocoa

2-1/4 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup water or beer

1/2 to 2/3 cup sauerkraut, chopped, rinsed and drained well

Cream together sugar and shortening. Add eggs, mix well, then add vanilla, salt and cocoa, and mix together. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and baking powder. Alternating, add the dry ingredients and water or beer. Mix, then fold in sauerkraut by hand.

Bake in greased and floured pan(s) for 35-45 minutes at 375 degrees. This will make one 9-by-13-inch sheet cake or a two-layer cake. The cake is moist and chewy. You can frost it with your favorite frosting, although sour-cream or cream-cheese icing is really delicious.

That cake is definitely different.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
