Cooking Time35 min

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3/4 cup margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup molasses

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325F degrees.
     
  2. Sterilize 5 (12-ounce) Ball Quilted Crystal (#14400-81400) jam/jelly canning jars, lids and rings by boiling them for 15 minutes.
     
  3. Remove the jars from the water and allow them to air-dry on your counter top; leave the lids and rings in the hot water until you're ready to use them.
     
  4. Once the jars are cool enough to handle, use a pastry brush to grease them with shortening and set aside.
     
  5. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, ginger, cinnamon and cloves.
     
  6. Stir in margarine, water and molasses until well blended.
     
  7. Divide batter among the 5 jars (they should be about 1/2 full).
     
  8. Place jars onto a cookie sheet and bake at 325F degrees for 35 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.  Move the jars around in the oven while they're baking, so they'll bake evenly.
     
  9. Remove jars from oven one at a time and place the lid and ring on and screw it on tightly.  Allow jars to cool on countertop.
