This week my spam folder brought me something I had never heard of before, nor had I ever considered it. Apple cake in a jar. You read that right, you make apple cake in a jar.
I have to admit, I had to reread the recipe like three times to be sure that’s what it wanted, it wanted me to bake apple cake inside of a jar. In the interests of ‘you have GOT to be kidding me, this will never work’, I gave it a shot.
First, the recipe!
So I started by putting the batter together which wasn’t that difficult really. This is what it looked like:
In other words, it looks like cake batter. It isn’t really exciting, until I put it in jars.
I was positive that I was going to end up with glass all over my oven, but ,I decided I’ve gone this far, I might as well finish it up. While it was baking, I boiled the tops.
Once it finished baking, I took it out and put the tops on as the recipe said. I was shocked, everything worked!
I took them into work because I wanted to have the pleasure of handing them out and seeing the looks on people’s faces. They were greatly entertaining, because most people were very confused. Apple Cake in a Jar blew people’s minds. According to everyone, who tried the cake, it was very tasty too!
Until next time, toodles!
