CRAZY CAKE MIX IN A JAR


2 cups flour
2/3 cup Cocoa Powder
3/4 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 1/3 cups Sugar
(4 cups of ingredients fill the jar)

Combine the sugar and salt and place in a 1 quart canning jar. Add the cocoa powder. Combine the flour and baking powder and add to the jar. It is helpful to tap jar lightly on a padded surface (towel on counter) as you layer the ingredients to make all ingredients fit neatly. Use scissors to cut a 9" diameter circle from fabric of your choice. Center fabric circle over lid and secure with a rubber band. Tie on a raffia or ribbon bow to cover the rubber band.

Attach a card with the following directions:

Crazy Cake

This is a crazy cake because you mix the cake all together in the pan that you bake it in.

Pour contents of jar into a 9x13" baking pan, then add the following ingredients:

3/4 cup Vegetable Oil
2 tsp. Vinegar
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 cups Water

Stir cake ingredients together using a wire whisk or fork, making certain that all ingredients are completely mixed together. Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes. Frost as desired or serve sprinkled with powdered sugar, with fresh fruit on the side.

I just gave out 16 jars of my Habanero Jelly, thinking some may use with their turkey. I just made some more jelly, but used Scotch Bonnet and Rocotillo Peppers. I read this on another website, but I agree, the Rocotillo Hot Pepper Jelly does have the best flavor (to me).

I was wondering about Rocotillos! On my taste buds, habaneros are "fruity" distinctively. Do you agree? Having never had a rocotillo (but having access to about a quart of them tomorrow), how is the taste different to you? And I assuming we're talking jellies here... I would very much appreciate having your opinion, deb.
