   *  Sauerkraut should be rinsed and drained thoroughly and then chopped
   +++ 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.
