Cake in a Jar!

I've been a little obsessed lately with baking cakes in jars. "Why?" you might ask... Well, with Rory gone I've had to find a way to ensure he still is the lucky recipient of home baked goods (paleo friendly, of course). For his birthday I baked coconut flour cakes and sent Maranatha Dark Chocolate Almond Spread as the frosting. Three weeks later, he received his birthday surprise and told me they tasted as if I had made them the day before.

Here is a link on instructions: Baking Cakes in Canning Jars.

In the oven right now are Nut Butter Blondies baked in jars! I prepare my jars a little differently than the link above. I do not grease my jars first. Rory eats them directly from the jar so it seems like a moot point to me. Also, baking times can vary quite a bit from original recipes, so keep an eye on them while baking.

The possibilities are endless! Have too many ripe bananas laying around? Make a batch of banana bread in jars and you'll have some 'fresh' banana bread to enjoy for weeks to come. Bored, but love to bake? Bake up a batch of your favorite cake. The single serving jars will help keep your will power in check! :) They also make great gifts and are suitable for fundraisers!



  1. Outstanding!! And they mail well?? This is so exciting!

  2. I can definitely attest to the awesomeness that is the cake in a jar... I'll never eat another stale, old cake again while I'm in Afghanistan

    Thanks babe!
