      • 1 spray cooking spray

      • 2 cups all-purpose flour

      • 1 1/3 cups sugar

      • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda

      • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

      • 1/2 cup regular butter, melted

      • 1 1/2 cups hot water

      • 1 tsp vanilla extract

      • 1 cup sauerkraut, pureed until smooth

      • 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa


      Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a bundt pan with cooking spray.


      In
      a large mixing bowl or in the bowl of an electric mixer, combine flour,
      sugar, baking soda and 2/3 cup of cocoa. Add melted butter, hot water
      and vanilla extract; mix well. Add sauerkraut and blend thoroughly.


      Pour
      batter into prepared pan; bake in center of oven until a tester
      inserted in center of cake comes out clean, about 55 to 60 minutes.


      Cool cake in pan for about 20 minutes and then turn out
      onto a baking rack to cool completely. Sprinkle with 1 tsp cocoa powder
      before slicing into 14 pieces.


      Optional: You can easily change the flavor of this cake by adding
      strong coffee instead of hot water or adding cayenne pepper and cinnamon
      with the vanilla.
