"I make this bread often. I mix in the bread machine, using the manual cycle. I will say a little extra water is needed. I shape the dough into 4 balls and bake it that way on the oven. That way a loaf is consumed before it dries out. I always freeze the other loaves. I always get comments on it when I take it somewhere. My pastor even asked for the recipe. Very tasty and a keeper."

"THE IDEA OF SAUERKRAUT BREAD SOUNDS GOOD BUT THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH WATER. IT ONLY CALLS FOR 3/4 CUP+ 1 T. I THOUGHT WHEN I STARTED IT THAT IT WASN'T ENOUGH THEN I THINK I GOT TOO MUCH. IT DIDN'T RAISE AND REALLY DIDN'T BAKE CLEAR THROUGH. THE TASTE WAS GOOD. I SEE NO ONE ELSE HAS REVIEWED THIS RECIPE. I WILL TRY IT AGAIN BUT PUT IN MORE WATER."
