Applesauce Cake Baked in a Jar Recipe

2 2/3 C. shortening
2 2/3 C. sugar
4 eggs
2 C. applesauce
1/3 C. water
3 1/3 C. all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 t. baking powder
2 t. baking soda
1 1/2 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
2 t. cloves
2/3 C. walnuts, chopped (optional)

Cream together the shortening and sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the applesauce & water; set aside.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves. Blend the dry ingredients into the applesauce mixture. Fold in the nuts.

Sterilize pint (wide mouth jam/jelly) jars, lids and rings. (keep the lids & rings in the hot water until ready to use). Grease the insides of the jars with shortening, (do not use Pam). Fill jars half full.

Place the jars on a cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 325� F. Bake in preheated oven for about 45 minutes or until pick inserted in the center (deep) of each cake comes out clean.

Remove jars from the oven one at a time, wipe rim of jar clean; put on a lid and ring. Screw on tightly. Jars will seal as the cakes cool. You'll hear a "plinking" sound which means that the jars have sealed. If you're not sure, push down on the lids after the cakes have cooled, the lids should not be lose or it is not sealed.

Note: I am not sure how many jars this will make, I have not tried this recipe and it does not say.
