My guest post on:
Do you have a million baby jars laying around your house like me. You wash them but can't find the heart to throw them in recycle? Yeah me to. So I have been seeing all these "Mason Jar Cakes" and thought, "Hey, since I am on a diet, I could totally do it in baby jars and maybe justifiy a small treat every once in awhile!"
So I decided that this is what I would do on a Saturday afternoon.
First gather your cake mix and all ingredients. If you want different colors, use food coloring. You will need a spray oil to coat the jars. I washed the jars by hand with the bottle brush, then ran through the dish washer on "Sanitize" mode.
Line them all up on a cookie sheet. I used the temperature for the 13x9 pan (350 degrees). They cooked approximately 30-35 minutes.
The jar and the lids are super hot!
Soon you will hear, POP POP POP coming from the kitchen. That is the jar sealing!
You can also freeze them. We always freeze the ones that didn't seal right. They will stay good in the freezer for about 5 months.
Hope you liked this handy trick!
