  • Cake in a jar

    Looking for comfort food that you don't need to cook in an emegency situation? Well look no farther... here it is CAKE IN A JAR!!!



    1 large can (24 oz) of apple sauce, or 3 cups of peeled, chopped apples.
    3 eggs
    3 cups flour (all purpose)
    1 cup corn oil
    1 ½ cups chopped walnuts or hazelnuts, pecans, etc
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon allspice
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ½ cup raisins, currants, or chopped dates

    Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F.

    Grease and flour 6 or 8 wide mouth PINT jars. Fill the jars about HALF full with cake batter. Bake at 325 for about 30 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out dry. While the cake is cooking start your lids and rings to simmering on the stove. Remove the jars from the oven ONE at a time, wipe the rim, then cap with simmering canning lid and secure the ring. Cool the jars on a towel until they "ping" and seal. Store on a dark, cool shelf.

    For a "different" taste I deleted ½ cup of applesauce and add ½ cup of brandy or rum to the cake batter. This should ensure it will keep for years. This cake will be spirit-filled!

        Is the "corn oil" corn syrup?

            Corn Oil is just plain old corn oil like what you cook with
