Sauerkraut Chocolate Cake

Tomorrow is friend-of-the-blog Mrs. Tairy Greene's birthday! In her honor, I am goin to post seven days of cake recipes, startin with this gem: Sauerkraut Chocolate Cake.

Yes, when I think of cake, I immediately think of sauerkraut too, don't you?

2/3 c. sugar
2/3 c. Crisco
1/2 c. cocoa
1 1/2 tsp. soda
1 tsp. vanilla
2/3 c. sauerkraut - rinsed, drained
3 eggs
2 1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. bakin powder
1 tsp. red colorin
1 c. water

Oven temp: 350 degrees

Pan size: 9x13 bakin pan

How to:
Blend sugar, Crisco, eggs; add cocoa, flour, bakin powder and soda. Mix together and add vanilla, red colorin and water. Chop sauerkraut and add to batter. Bake in well greased 9x13 pan at 350 for 30 minutes. (Here are my thoughts: 1) Why the sauerkraut? I've heard of (and eaten) zucchini cake before, but sauerkraut is pickled and smells like pee! 2) What is the point of addin red food colorin? That just seems weird. Oh wait, this is a perfectly good chocolate cake ruined by sauerkraut. Weird is the word here.)
