Apple Jar Cake

Apple Jar Cake

Mason jar canning recipes are always fun to make, and this delicious apple cake is no exception. If you want to give this recipe an extra homemade spin, make your own applesauce to use in it. Yum!

Serves: 8

Cooking Time: 1 hr

Ingredients
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 1/3 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325F degrees.
     
  2. Grease 8 wide-mouth pint canning jars with melted shortening. Use a brush and avoid getting grease on the jar rims.
     
  3. Cream shortening and sugar.
     
  4. Beat in eggs and applesauce.
     
  5. Sift together the dry ingredients and blend them into the applesauce mixture.
     
  6. Add the raisins and nuts and divide the batter evenly between the jars. The jars will be more than half full.
     
  7. Bake open jars about 60 minutes in an oven at 325 degrees.
     
  8. When done, quickly remove one hot jar at a time and clean its sealing edge.
     
  9. Immediately apply and firmly tighten a two-piece wide-mouth canning lid. The lid will form a vacuum seal as the jar cools.
     
  10. Jars of cooled bread may be stored on the pantry shelf with other canned foods or may be placed in a freezer.
