Scarletta Bakes just posted this delicious sounding chocolate chilli cake recipe, which she baked in glass jars. You have no idea how much this idea excites me, it's so perfect! All you need to do is put the lid on, and you instantly have cake that will travel easily. I imagine taking these cakes on picnics, road trips and to work/school for afternoon tea! I imagine this would work well with any cake/cupcake recipe, as long as the baking time is changed (Scarletta advises that the cake will continue to cook in the jar after it's come out of the oven, so it needs to be taken out a little earlier).
The below image is from Scarletta's website, do go and check out this recipe and read about baking in jars!
Do you think this idea is as great as I do? I want to go and buy some jars right now and take these cake jars on a roadtrip (sadly my bank account won't allow me to buy or do much of anything right now ugh).
