Cake in a jar

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
6 Wide (1 pt) mouth canning jars
1 Yellow cake mix
1 pack (4 serving size) vanilla instant pudding mix
4 Eggs
1 cup Water
⅔ cup Oil
Candy coated chocolate pieces for "buttons" (M&M's?)

This recipe is from the Aleene's Creative Living TV Show. Designs and instructions by Penny Mathews.

Jars, seals and bands must be sterilized prior to use. Cover with water and boil for 15 minutes. Dry jars. Allow seals and bands to remain in hot water or re-heat before cakes are finished baking.

Blend all ingredients, except candy. Mix for about 2 minutes. Add a handful of candy. Grease jars. Pour one cup batter into each jar. Drop a few candies on top of batter. Place jars on a cookie sheet, not touching each other. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes. Do not over bake. Carefully remove from oven. Place seals and screw bands on jars. Do not over tighten.

Let cool. For gift giving you can paint the lids and seals, glue real buttons where desired and tie raffia around edge of lid. Write recipe on index cards - decorate with a few buttons and give a cake and recipe to someone special. For prolonged storage, keep cakes in refrigerator.
