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 9×13″ 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.

  1. 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!
