Cake in a Jar

My Gramma was going on the Internet and found a recipe,  so I woke up this morning and she said, “We’re going to make something delicious for school!”

We got out the jars, flour, sugar, and salt and we stirred it together. I cut up apples and pears and put them on the bottom of the jar. I put butter on the top.

It’s actually really easy to do. I really, really  like this cake in a jar and I know I’ll be making it again!

Here’s the recipe Gramma found on the Internet. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Have you ever heard of baking in a jar? Me neither but watch how CHOW takes baking to a whole new level in the video below!

Personally, I would swap out the wheat flour with coconut flour or chia flour to avoid eggs, the sugar for honey, use only grass fed butter or coconut oil and top it off with homemade coconut whip cream!  You can make any recipe healthy!

“Start with two-and-one-half cups of fresh seasonal fruit. Put those into four half-pint canning jars. Combine one half-cup of flour, one half-cup of sugar and one half-teaspoon salt. Whisk it together with a fork and pour it on the fruit, and then top with butter. Once your jars are filled, move them to a square baking dish. Fill the inside of the baking dish with some dried beans to keep the jars from sliding around. Bake it at 350 for one hour. After baking, let the jars cool completely. I like to put a little whipped cream on top and, if you like, you can keep them in the fridge for up to a week. They make a great gift, and they are awesome for a picnic.” states CHOW.

    This was so YUMMY that Grandpa at TWO of the cakes in a jar! I think we’ll need to make some more real soon. Should we try different fruit combinations?
