While I was cruising Facebook recently, a friend posted a video about how to make a cake in a Mason jar. I was intrigued.
I jumped over, watched the video and was inspired to make these for my daughter’s upcoming birthday. These fun cakes can be refrigerated for up to a week if you put the top on the jar.
You can just enjoy them immediately, of course, or gift them to friends and family.
The recipe is easy and the ingredients are few. Adorable, portable cakes in a jar:
- 1 1/2 cups pitted cherries (or your favorite seasonal fruit)
- 1 cup sliced strawberries (ditto)
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream (If you want to make your own whipped topping, that is.)
