Sauerkrautkuchen - Sauerkraut Cake

Sauerkrautkuchen ist eine Art Quiche.

Blätterteig in mundgerechte Stücke schneiden und aufs Blech legen.
Aus Sauerkraut, Salz, Pfeffer, ein paar Kräutern, einem Ei, Schinkenwürfeln, Schmand und Reibekäse eine geschmeidige Masse herstellen und auf den Teig setzen.
30 min bei 180°C Umluft; Ober- und Unterhitze geht natürlich auch, aber dann muss jedes Blech einzeln gebacken werden, sonst wird das untere nicht braun.
Mischungsverhältnis nach Gefühl*, aber das Sauerkraut UNBEDINGT vorher gründlich ausquetschen, sonst gelingt es nicht.
Guten Appetit!

*Mein eigenes erprobtes Mischungsverhältnis ist: ca. 750g Sauerkraut, 125g Schinkenwürfel, 200g geriebener Käse (z. B. Emmentaler oder Gouda) und ca. 400g Schmand (oder Creme Fraiche, oder Saure Sahne). Das ergibt ungefähr 2 - 3 Bleche.

Die Geschichte dahinter? Ich weiß garnicht mehr, wo ich das Rezept mal gefunden habe, aber ich mache das schon viele Jahre sehr gerne, und es ist einfach immer ein Erfolg und wird regelmäßig von vielen Leuten nachgebacken.


Thanks, Jan, for this recipe. I'm posting an English translation here:

Sauerkraut Cake is a type of Quiche.

Cut puff pastry (Use frozen puff pastry, thawed) into bite-size pieces (or serving size pieces) and put onto baking sheet.

Mix sauerkraut, salt, pepper, a few herbs, an egg, cubed ham, schmand (sour cream?), and grated cheese into a smooth dough and put onto puff pastry.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350°F.

Make the filling using your ‘gut feeling’ BUT the sauerkraut needs to be very well drained (as much liquid as possible squeezed out).

The mixture that I use is 750g sauerkraut, 125 g cubed ham, 200 g grated cheese (Emmental or Gouda) and about 400 g Schmand (or Creme Fraiche or sour cream).

This is enough for about 2 - 3 baking sheets.

The story behind this recipe? I don’t recall where I found this recipe, but I’ve enjoyed making this for many years, always successfully and have passed it along to many who have also make this.

Thinking of starting your own Handmade Business?

Oma Gerhild Fulson

This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.

How do I know?

Well, if I can do it, anyone can.

I've even figured out how I can help you.

I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.

Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.

Thinking of starting a handmade business. I've got a FREE workshop from my coach right here.

PS:  Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.

PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales, and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look ... and a whole bunch to gain.
