• Crazy Cake Mix in a Jar

    2 cups flour
    2/3 cup Cocoa Powder
    3/4 tsp. Salt
    1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
    1 1/3 cups Sugar
    (4 cups of ingredients fill the jar)

    Combine the sugar and salt and place in a 1 quart canning jar. Add the cocoa powder. Combine the flour and baking powder and add to the jar. It is helpful to tap jar lightly on a padded surface (towel on counter) as you layer the ingredients to make all ingredients fit neatly. Use scissors to cut a 9" diameter circle from fabric of your choice. Center fabric circle over lid and secure with a rubber band. Tie on a raffia or ribbon bow to cover the rubber band.

    Attach a card with the following directions:

    Crazy Cake

    This is a crazy cake because you mix the cake all together in the pan that you bake it in.

    Pour contents of jar into a 9x13" baking pan, then add the following ingredients:

    3/4 cup Vegetable Oil
    2 tsp. Vinegar
    1 tsp. Vanilla
    2 cups Water

    Stir cake ingredients together using a wire whisk or fork, making certain that all ingredients are completely mixed together. Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes. Frost as desired or serve sprinkled with powdered sugar, with fresh fruit on the side.

      I was trying to think of something besides a glass quart jar, or a ziploc or vacuum bag to put these mixes in, and as I looked on the island in my kitchen were sitting two of those 32 quart Gatorade Bottles! I'm sure after cleand and dried these would work wonders for a mix! I'm gonna start using those, and for bigger mixes, a 64 oz. plastic bottle that juices come in! (Or larger) ....I was afraid of glass breaking, rips in the ziplocs, etc. Thanks for listening! CarlaJean
