Intro: Apple-Cake in a Jar for Lazy Bakers
My Girlfriend loves Cakes and i love to make things in Jars so we decided to make them in jars that she can eat one whenever she wants to.
Step 1: The Indrigents
-150 Sugar ( i used brown sugar and white sugar 50/50)
-1 shot apple liqeur
- a pinch of baking powder
-6 or 7 Jars
Step 2: Before You Make the Dough ...
...You have to clean the Jars so you can put them instantly in the oven
I cleaned them with soapwater and then a second time with clear water.
In the meantime my Girlfriend peeled and cut two of the apples into small pieces, the third in quarters.
Step 3: The Butter and the Shugar
After preparing the Jars and the apples i made the dough.
My butter came directly from the fridge so it was too hard to continue. To solve this Problem i cut the butter in small pieces and put theminto the microwave.
After that i weighed the sugar into the bowl and added the eggs.
Step 4: Mixing Jayyyy
Now you mix it and if its a creamy mass you add the apple liqeur. Again, mixing. Dont worry if it looks a bit weird, when you finally add the flour it will look normally. I added the half of the flour, mixed it and added the other half.
Step 5: Final Mixing and Filling the Jars
Now i added the small apple-pieces and mixed it for the last time.
I took the jars and filled them a liitle more than half. Then i took the big apple-pieces and cut them like a hand fan and put them on top of the dough.
Step 6: Baking and Sealing the Jars
I heated the furnance to 150 Degrees Celsius and baked the open jars about 30 minutes.
I took the lids and heated them in hot water. When the cakes were baked i took them and closed them instantly. After that i turnded hem upside down and let them cool.
It is possible that the jars don´t close well, 2 of my 6 hadn´t closed so we ate them :D
but the other 4 stayed good for about 2 month.
