   Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set
   aside.  Cream together the butter and sugar in a bowl until light and
   fluffy, using an electric mixer set at medium speed.  Add eggs, one at a
   time, beating well after each addition.  Beat in vanilla. Add dry
   ingredients alternately with water to creamed mixture, beating well after
   each addition.  Stir in sauerkraut. Spread batter in greased 13 x 9 x
   2-inch bakeing pan.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree F. oven for 35 minutes
   or until cake tests done. Cool in pan on rack. Frost with Creamy Chocolate
   Frosting.  Cut into squares. CREAMY CHOCOLATE FROSTING: Melt chocolate in a
   custard cup in hot water. Cool slightly. Combine chocolate, cream cheese,
   milk, confectioners' sugar, salt, and vanilla in a bowl. Beat with an
   electric mixer at high speed until smooth and creamy. NOTE: This is one of
   those dishes that sound absolutely horrible, but tastes great. It is also
   one of those recipes that is a classic but you can never find in most
   cookbooks.  I have fooled my kids with this as well as seen it done on TV.
   Everyone thinks that the sauerkraut is coconut. So be sure to rinse and
   drain the sauerkraut several times when you make this recipe.
