Cake In A Jar

You've probably seen the Cowgirl Cookie versions (look here) but mine is a different option.
This is my Apricot and Pumpkin Seed Loaf 
otherwise known as,
My Most Asked For Recipe
(here and here for variations and also on the last page of the recipe book)

3/4 cup coconut
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup pumpkin seed kernals
1 cup of All-Bran or crushed Weet-bix
1 cup chopped dried apricots

These ingredients are listed on the tag for the recipient to add themselves;
1 1/2 cups of self raising flour
1 1/2 cups of milk

with the following instruction;
Mix the dry ingredients. Add the milk and mix. Bake in a greased loaf tin in a moderate oven for about
50-60 mins. Stand in the pan for 5 mins and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.....
(though this cake is often cut warm too in our house)

This will fit into a Fowlers jar #31 and is the gift I am giving to my preserving friends who are always happy to receive another jar. I have clipped a square of wax paper under the lid to make extra sure the ingredients travel OK. Experiment with the layers and get a combo that looks pleasing to you. Of course you could also use a large Mokona coffee jar too.

Christmas gifts almost done now.

  1. I've never seen a canning jar with that type of lid. Are the clips removed after the jar is sealed?

  2. These are great gifts - I made white choc, cranberry & oat cookies in a jar and they were well received.

    Merry Christmas

    Cheers - Joolz

  3. Wicked idea..I've also been thinking outside the square this year too. Lots of wonderful lil tip shop/Trove shop treasures plus a few goodies I've made myself. It's so much more satisfying than a commercial shop up!!
