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. (!!!)

So as to ensure I didn't eat the entire cake myself, I took most of it to the clay studio to share with other clay folks. It was met with very positive reviews from everyone who tried it!  I stayed at the clay center for almost 4 hours working in the studio, and of course, got quite hungry as the time passed by. I proceeded to eat 4 squares of cake (bringing my daily total up to an absurd 6 pieces of cake), and thought each one tasted better than the last. The sauerkraut cake is a success, methinks. No more cake for me tomorrow though, unless I want to buy new pants.  ;)
