So ill be honest, I don't know where I was, or what I was doing when I heard of cake in a jar, but it sounded pretty darn awesome and inventive! It also sounded like an easy and perfect gift to put in the rooms of the single soldiers for redeployment! Anyhow, almost immediately after hearing about cake in a jar, I googled it. I found lots of recipes, but the one at Loving a Soldier, Living the Life (Army Wife Network) seemed to be the one for me.
Washed them. and boiled them.
I did not really know how to boil jars, so I googled that too.
Then here is the best part of the recipe.
Mr. Dough boy
The recipe is a cake box recipe! Prepare as directed. Fill the jars half way.
Bake at 400 for 30-35 minutes.
Oh! I forgot to mention!
I invited Betty and Duncan over to see how they do in the jar!
So far, so good!
