chocolate cake baked in a jar


these cakes/breads baked in a jar can be kept for a year but for best results i think they are better if eaten within 6 months after they seal. they are moist and frosting isn't needed, but you can always put some on right before you eat them. my guys leave every year for deer camp for 2 weeks and crave some food from home while away and these are perfect for them (no cooking needed)
