    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 USA and 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 USA and Canada)
