Healthy Dark Chocolate Cake







  • 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.
