1/2 c
1 tsp
1 tsp
1/4 tsp
2/3 c
1 1/2 c
3
1 tsp
1 c
2/3 c
sifted flour
baking cocoa
baking powder
baking soda

sugar
eggs

Fudge Frosting:

4 T
4 T
1/2 c
sugar
milk
butter
Nestles chocolate chips
Procedure:

1.  Preheat oven to 350F.
2.  Sift together the dry ingredients. Set aside.
3.  Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
4.  Add eggs, one at a time beating well after each addition.
5.  Beat in vanilla.
6.  Add dry ingredients alternately with water to creamed mixture, beating well after each addition. Stir in Sauerkraut.
7.  Spread batter in greased 13" x 9" x 2" baking pan.
8.  Bake till cake tests done. (30 - 35 minutes?) Cool before frosting.

The frosting I like tastes so much like yummy old fashioned fudge without all the work. And if you over cooked it and added walnuts I don't know why you couldn't use it as fudge. My mom used to hate it when hers would break on top of the cake but we loved it!

Fudge Frosting:
1.  Put sugar, milk and butter in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
2.  When sugar is dissolved, add chips, remove from the heat and stir till smooth.
3.  Pour onto cooled cake.

I know it will seem a little thin, kind of like syrup but it will set up fine.

Make this when there are a lot of chocolate lovers around or well you know what will happen.....lol
