A Jarring Experience!

I have become a bit obsessed with mason jars and seem to be using them for a myriad of things. From baking cakes in them (See photo below of Lekach for Mivtzoim and a gift at my daughters Bas Mitzvah  to stacking gelt in them! This makes a great gift to friends, Baal Habatim, community leaders and can even be used in local stores who may wish to offer a sweet Chanukah treat! I love making my labels on http://www.myownlabels.com and hope you will too!

A little twine and a layer of parchment paper, covered by brown craft paper gives these Honey cakes a rustic look. Make sure to fill your jars only half way with batter and if you’d like, attach a wooden spoon for convenience:). Bake at regular temperature however the time may need to be adjusted. Yum!

Any kind of Mason Jar will do, however these are a little classier! Something about that little band of orange rubber! Kind of makes it all come together!

    • Yes, just fill the jar half way with batter, place jars on a baking tray and bake in oven at regular temperature. If the batter rises above jars, then just slice the extra part off once the cake has cooled. I have tried this with lemon cake as well…the idea are endless! Happy Baking!

    • I used a few different sizes but the best size is the 4 ounce or 6 ounce. The bigger you go with your jar, the more coins you need so it starts to get more expensive. You need about 12 – 18 coins for the 4 ounce, but I bought a tub of the larger size coins from the shluchim office. I hope this helps, if you need more info just let me know. Hatzlocha!
