Chocolate Cake in a Jar
1 stick + 3 tbl. butter
3 cups sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups unsweetened applesauce
3 cups flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Prewash 8 pint-sized wide mouth canning jars (be sure to use the
kind that have no shoulders) 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 325¼F 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.
