Chocolate Cake Mix in a Jar Recipe
1/2 C. + 3 T. butter
3 C. sugar
1 T. vanilla
2 C. unsweetened applesauce
3 C. flour
3/4 C. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/8 t. salt
Wash 8 pint-sized wide mouth canning jars in hot, soapy water. Rinse well, dry and let them come to room temperature. Grease insides of jar well. Beat together butter and half of sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and remaining sugar, vanilla and applesauce. Sift dry ingredients together and add to the applesauce mixture a little at a time: beat well after each addition .
Pour one cup of batter into each jar and carefully remove any batter from the rims. Place jars in a preheated 325º F. oven and bake for 40 minutes. While cakes are baking, bring a saucepan of water to a boil and carefully add jar lids. Remove pan from heat and keep lids hot until ready to use.
When the cakes have finished baking, remove jars from oven. Make sure jar rims are clean. (If they're not, jars will not seal correctly) Place lids on jars, and screw rings on tightly. Jars will seal as they cool. Cakes will slide right out when ready to serve.
