Spiced Pumpkin Cake in Jars

Spiced Pumpkin Cake in Jars

My grandmother was always preserving one thing or another, and her pumpkin spice cake was a huge hit at the holidays. Once you make this gift jar recipe, you'll see why!

Serves: 8

Ingredients
  • 1 cup seedless raisins
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup salad oil
  • 16 ounces canned pumpkin
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325F degrees.
     
  2. Sterilize 8 (12-ounce) Ball Quilted Crystal Canning Jars (14400-81400), lids and rings by boiling them for 10 minutes.
     
  3. Leave the lids and rings in the hot water until you're ready to use them; remove jars and allow the jars to air-dry and cool.
     
  4. Using a pastry brush, brush the inside of the cooled jars with shortening (DO NOT use Pam or Baker's Secret); set aside.
     
  5. Coarsely chop the raisins and walnuts; set aside.
     
  6. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cloves, cinnamon and ginger in a large bowl.
     
  7. Add raisins and walnuts; toss to lightly combine.
     
  8. In another large bowl, beat eggs at high speed until thick and yellow (2-3 minutes).
     
  9. Gradually beat in the sugar until thick and light.
     
  10. At low speed, beat in the oil and pumpkin; blend well.
     
  11. Gradually stir in the flour mixture until well blended.
     
  12. Divide among the 8 canning jars (should be slightly less than half-full. Wipe the sides of the jar off (inside/ outside) in case you slop or it'll burn.
     
  13. Place jars onto a cookie sheet or they'll tip over.
     
  14. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until a pick inserted into the center of each jar comes out clean.
     
  15. Have your lids and rings ready.
     
  16. Take one jar at a time from the oven; place a lid and ring on and screw down tightly.
     
  17. Use heavy-duty oven mitts, as the jars are HOT!
     
  18. Place the jars onto your counter top too cool. You'll know when they've sealed, you'll hear a "plinking sound."
