Pina colada jar cakes

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 can (20-oz) unsweetened crushed pineapple
1 Stick (4-oz) plus
3 tablespoons Unsalted butter, softened
3½ cup Firmly packed light brown sugar
4 Eggs
½ cup Dark rum
3⅓ cup Flour
1½ teaspoon Baking powder
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 cup Sweetened flaked coconut

from 365 Ways to Prepare for Christmas Preheat oven to 325°. Before starting batter, wash 8 (1-pint) wide-mouth canning jars with lids in hot, soapy water and let them drain, dry and cool to room temperature. Generously grease inside of jars (I’ve used PAM).

Drain crushed pineapple for about 10 minutes reserving juice. Puree drained pineapple in a food processor. Measure out 1½ cups puree, adding a little juice if necessary to make 1 ½ cups. Set puree aside. Discard remaining juice or save for another use.

With an electric mixer, beat together butter and half of brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, then remaining sugar. Beat in pineapple puree and run and set aside.

Sift together flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Gradually add to pineapple mixture in thirds, beating well after each addition to make a thick batter. Stir in coconut.

Spoon 1 level cupful of batter into each jar. Carefully wipe rims clean, then place jars in center of preheated oven. Bake 40 minutes.

About 10 minutes before the cakes are done, bring a medium saucepan of water to boil. Put in jar lids, cover and remove from heat. Keep lids in hot water until they are used.

When cakes are done, remove jars from over. If jar rims need cleaning, use a moistened paper towel. Carefully put lids and rings in place, then screw tops tightly shut. Place jars on a wire rack; they will seal as they cool.
