Food Porn: Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake, v. 1.0


gluten-free and vegan Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake, v. 1.0

Yes, you read that correctly: chocolate sauerkraut cake. Think about it - sweet + salty + bitter + sour. Four of the five essential flavors. Actually, as I think about it, sauerkraut is pretty pungent, so can we add that fifth flavor to the list too?  If so, this cake may just have the potential to satisfy all our flavor needs.

Both the cake and frosting are gluten-free, vegan, and made without refined sugars and gums. And as a bonus, I didn't use tree nuts or coconut either!  I just licked out the frosting bowl and ate a piece two pieces of cake.  It needs a bit of tweaking, and when I'm done,  I'll share the recipe with you.  I think you'll love it.

Want to come over for a slice? I have a whole pan, and one of my housemates doesn't like cake. (!!!)
