APPLE CAKE IN A JAR
Recipe by Dorothy Rieke. Recipe is taken from the October 2012 issue of the Mature Living Magazine published by LifeWay, page 32
3 cups all-purpose flour 2 ⅔ cups sugar
1 ½ teaspoons salt 4 eggs
½ teaspoon baking powder ⅔ cup water
2 teaspoons baking soda 3 cups peeled, grated apples
¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon ⅓ cup chopped dates
⅔ cup shortening ⅓ cup raisins
½ cup chopped walnuts
Sterilize 7 or 8 wide-mouth pint jars and lids. Grease them with shortening.
Preheat oven to 325˚F. Sift the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Set aside. Mix the shortening, sugar, and eggs together in a large bowl. Add the dry ingredients alternately with water, mixing well. Fold in the apples, dates, raisins, and nuts. Fill the jars about half full. Clean the tops of jars. Place the jars on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes. When the cake is done, remove the jars from the oven. Wipe the rims with a clean soft cloth. Place hot, sterilized lids on the jars. Add the bands and tighten. Set aside to cool. When ready to serve, open the jar, slide out the cake, slice and serve. Yield: 7 or 8 cakes
