    Default Pumpkin Spice Cake in Jars

    Pumpkin Spice Cake in Jars

    1 cup seedless raisins
    1 cup walnuts
    2 cups 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 sugar
    1 cup oil
    16 ounces canned pumpkin

    Preheat oven to 325F. Sterilize 8 (12 oz) Ball Quilted Crystal Canning Jars, lids and rings by boiling them for 10 minutes. 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. Prepare the batter in the meantime.

    Using a pastry brush, brush the inside of the cooled jars with shortening (DO NOT use Pam or Baker's Secret); set aside. Coarsely chop the raisins and walnuts; set aside. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cloves, cinnamon and ginger in a large bowl. Add raisins and walnuts; toss to lightly combine. In another large bowl, beat eggs at high speed until thick and yellow (2-3 minutes). Gradually beat in the sugar until thick and light. At low speed, beat in the oil and pumpkin; blend well. Gradually stir in the flour mixture until well blended.

    Divide among the 8 canning jars (should be slightly less than 1/2 full. Wipe the sides of the jar off (inside/ outside) in case you slop or it'll burn. Place jars onto a cookie sheet or they'll tip over. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until a pick inserted into the center of each jar comes out clean. Have your lids and rings ready. Take one jar at a time from the oven; place a lid and ring on and screw down tightly. Use HEAVY-DUTY mitts--the jars are HOT! Place the jars onto your counter top too cool. You'll know when they've sealed, you'll hear a plinking sound.

    Obviously you aren't aware (or don't care?) that such things are VERY unsafe and should not be done. Easily verified by a search on the Internet.
    I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.
